“Great way to celebrate Wedding Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

My wife and I stayed in the Fall Cottage for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Cottage is definitely the way to go. We had some problems getting the jets to work in the hot tub but other than that the stay was great. Breakfast was fantastic. Beautiful grounds. Would recommend this to a friend and would definitely go back for another stay.

Make sure to plan ahead for dinner though as the chef needs sufficient notice to include you in the evening dinner. If you do not want to participate, still plan ahead since you are 4 miles outside of town and there are no other options.

Room Tip: Spring for the cottage!

Dear Luis P:
It was a pleasure to share the Fall Cottage with you! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your second anniversary together at Hillbrook. I am sorry to hear that you had some problems with the jets in the tub. As soon as we heard about this problem it was checked and we deeply apologize for any inconvenience it caused you during your stay. Please advise us of the problem when booking next reservation, so we can make it up to you!

As for dinner reservations, yes we do need notice for dining at Hillbrook because we want the experience to be as delightful as possible for you. We utilize your dietary needs, restrictions and dislikes to create a menu around everyone in the dining room that evening. It is very popular and requires a reservation. I am sorry if we were not able to accommodate you both during your stay, but would love to have you in the dining room on your next visit.

If you need us to make you dining reservations locally we can also do so. We have a few restaurants locally, and some within 20 miles that are worth the drive. If you need assistance in making reservations or need a recommendation in the future, please let us know and we would be happy to assist.

We appreciate your business and enjoyed your stay! We are also looking forward to visiting with you in the future.

Sincerely,
Carissa Zanella

My partner and I stayed here for our birthday and it was an unexpected delight! We found this place on Living Social and had no clue what to expect. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe what we found!

First, the staff is more than amazingly friendly, they're knowledgeable and helpful, too! It is clear that you are their number one priority.

The grounds are immaculate and stunning. We especially loved the oversize chess board and hammocks. We brought our dog so there was plenty of space to walk and play--he had a great time!

We started our stay with a massage at the Gatehouse Spa and that was the best decision ever! Lisa, our massage therapist, had hands like an angel. She knew exactly which spots to hit with the perfect amount of pressure to relax you and relieve your tension! A+++

We ended our evening with the renowned five-course candlelit dinner. Words cannot describe how scrumptious everything was. We had never dined like this before so, again, we had no idea what to expect. What we were served was incredible! Each course kept getting better--we were thrilled! First, we had a spanakopita that was out of this world! Then an onion soup that was to die for (and I don't even LIKE onions!)!! Next we ate a light pasta with spicy tomato sauce. For our main dish we had fillet mignon that was so moist it melted in your mouth. Last, we had a chocolate decadence that was drizzled in a strawberry puree sauce. Yum, yum, YUM! I would highly recommend the five-course meal.

The only sour note we had was with the groundskeeper. Our dog ran out of our room when he saw a goose in the yard and the groundskeeper was not too pleased/pretty rude about getting our dog back on leash.

Overall, the stay was magical, memorable and money well spent!

Room Tip: Keep your dog on leash when the groundskeeper is around :)

Dear Ryan D:
Thank you for the kind words. We are ecstatic that you thought so highly of the Hillbrook Inn. It was an honor to share your birthdays with you both and will be happy to share your review with my staff. I appreciate your acknowledgement about the spa and Lisa. She is pretty amazing both at her job as well as a person! We are lucky to have such a wonderful staff at our spa and Inn. I am sorry to hear about your sour note about the groundskeeper. He is actually a really great person and I will talk to him about the incident. I know sometimes things happen and all our dogs have a mind of their own sometimes!
Although, I am glad to hear that overall the stay “was magical, memorable and money well spent!” We hope to see you in the future!
Sincerely,
Carissa Zanella

So I decided to surprise my wife & took her here for the night. It's only an hour & a half from DC so it was an easy trip on a Saturday evening. We stayed in the Overlook & the view was amazing! The staff was all super friendly, accommodating & genuine. We went out to dinner & a little Italian cafe then returned to our room where we played an antique mismatched game of scrabble! We then watched a movie on the iPad. We had a fantastic weekend!!! There's tons of stuff to do near by. We spent the morning at a flea market & the afternoon at the casino. Can't wait to go back!!! These people have thought of literally any need or want you could have. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Came to the Hillbrook with my husband and yorkie puppy to escape the hustle and bustle of NY for some peace, quiet and tranqulity and that's exactly what we got and then some. What a wonderful place to escape to. I have been to several B&B's and am not a fan of them and the victorian theme that is typical of most B&B's, but the Hillbrook Inn is in a class by itself and is the best B&B that we have been to. The country setting, beautiful and spacious grounds and english tudor style inn make this B&B five stars. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the grounds listening to the sounds of birds, crickets and frogs. Our dog also loved running and rolling around in the grass. As for the accomodations, we stayed in the Fall cottage for 3 nights which I highly recommend. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was so comfy that we had a hard time getting out of it. The only suggesstion that we have which would make the room an A+ would be to replace the small 12 inch tv with vhs for a bigger tv and a DVD player. The inn itself is a short drive to town and the casino. The breakfast was delicious and very satisfying and the staff was friendly and accomodating. We liked that we didn't have to pay for anything including tips until we settled the bill at check out. I hate to say this, but the only disappointment for us was the five course dinner. Other than for the main course, the other courses were served on saucer sized dishes so we thought that the dinner was a bit overpriced for what we got and think that for $65 per person that a glass of wine could be included. Overall, the Hillbrook Inn is a wonderful romantic getaway for couples and their pets and we are defintely going to return next fall and in future years to come.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the cottages!

Thank you for naming us "the best bed and breakfast you have ever been to"! It is truly an honor to hear that. It is nice to hear you enjoyed all aspects of the property from the wildlife and land to tint aim house. When guests stay for an extended time, they are able to enjoy the different facets of Hillbrook and we are proud to be a part of that, so thank you! We also appreciate your feedback and appreciate suggestions! We have replace the tv in the room to a flat screen this week, we have been in the process of a lot of upgrades to the inn this year, only feel badly you were not able to take advantage of it on this visit. We agree with the DVD player as well, but we do hope you were able to enjoy the extended dish network we offer guests.

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with dinner. I will discuss it with our Executive Chef, to see what we can do to make sure guests are getting the full experience, a meal that they expect and more. We hope that we will have another opportunity to change your dining experience to match the rest of your visit! We look forward to the future and sharing Hillbrook with you again!

Sincerely, Carissa Zanella

Stayed in the Summer cottage which was absolutely wonderful. We felt as if we'd been transported to a secluded up-scale Eurpean setting in the country. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. We both enjoyed the 5 - course gormet dinner in the Inn's gormal dining roomthat evening in the Inn as well as a deliously prepared breakfast in the enclosed porch the next morning. If you enjoy participating in the bed and breakfast experienc, the Hillbrook Inn is a special treat that should not be missed!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but the seansonal 'cottages' are suite style rooms with fireplaces!

My boyfriend and I spent a night in the Hillbrook's Winter Cottage after a nice friend offered me her Living Social coupon (we needed an escape from the city)! The night was so wonderful that we were disappointed to learn (although not surprised) we couldn't extend our stay because the entire Inn was booked the following evening. The Cottage was gorgeous, with a jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed, fireplace and iPad. The grounds were lovely and so conducive to relaxing, which was our goal (loved the hammocks). The food was tasty, and the staff was top notch - when we decided to try to find another inn to stay for the rest of the weekend since they were booked, the wonderful staff did a web search for us and helped us find somewhere to stay. And the best is that my two little dogs were able to enjoy the vacation with us, and they even had bowls and special "Paws" towels and treats waiting for them upon arrival. We will definitely be back!

We are happy to hear you and your boyfriend enjoyed the Winter Cottage. It is always nice to escape the city and the hectic lives we all lead! We do wish we were able to extend your stay with us, it would have been nice to visit longer. Next time we hope that the visit can be longer for you both! Thank you for stating the " Cottage was gorgeous with a jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed, fireplace and iPad". Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable, easy and enjoyable as possible. It is nice to hear we achieved our goal and look forward to your goal to return for more relaxation and pampering! We are looking forward to the visit! Sincerely, Carissa Zanella

In search of a weekend getaway spot within an hour+ of the DC metro area, we found the Hillbrook Inn to be an excellent choice, with warm inviting grounds, outstanding accommodations and an absolutely melt-in-your mouth dinner at their resturant. Definitely a new go-to destination for a quick get away.
