My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our 4th anniversary at the Hillbrook Inn. In order to stay, we utilized the Hillbrook Inn's "One Night Stay for Two" package that was offered on LivingSocial.
It was worth every penny. The staff was delightful, courteous, and eager to help. There is no "front desk" where you can find staff, but you can easily spot a staff member throughout the Main House. Every employee we encountered was able to assist us.
The food was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed the three-course dinner for $45 per person. The meal started with warm rolls, and mushroom and sherry soup. The main course was filet mignon with vegetables. For dessert we had chocolate decadence with raspberry sauce. AMAZING!
The complementary breakfast was also delicious. It included a fruit smoothie, french toast, turkey sausage, and some fruit. We enjoyed a couple cups of coffee and some orange and grapefruit juice as well. Ricardo was our server. He was delightful!
Our most favorite part of the trip was the cooking class with Chef Marshall. He taught us how to make "Thanksgiving Dinner". We came to the Inn early, and Carissa, the owner, lead us in her truck to the Farm House, which is a property that Hillbrook owns a couple miles down the road. We found this gesture to be particularly thoughtful. You don't get service like that anywhere else!
When we arrived at the Farm House, we received a warm welcome from Chef Marshall, who had prepped all of the ingredients prior to our arrival. He also prepared some handouts for us to take away from our trip. We made a chicken instead of turkey, since a turkey would have taken longer to cook and would have been too large for our party. We also made butternut squash soup, pumpkin pie, and stuffing within approximately two hours. Then, we got to enjoy our lovely creations! For $45 per person, we felt as though we received a great value for the service and food we made and ate. We hope to come back to take classes with Marshall again with some friends.
Thank you, Hillbrook Inn, for our wonderful stay!
