We found Hillbrook through a deal offered on LivingSocial and were not disappointed. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff friendly. I had gotten confused while booking and they graciously accommodated my mistake as best as possible.
We were greeted with a drink and tour before being shown to our room. We stayed in a suite in the Hawthorne building which was about 2 miles away from the main inn - the room was gorgeous, comfortable, and immaculate.
We signed up for that evening's three course dinner (you can choose 3 or 5). It was a bit pricey and formal for our usual tastes, but everything was fresh, delicious, and they accommodated my vegetarian diet without a hitch. Chef and staff follow up with you after the meal to ensure everything was to your liking, and I overheard the chef very graciously taking a preparation suggestion from a guest which I thought was very nice.
All the grounds are beautiful, with little details scattered about including hammocks and Adirondack chairs. We were happy to explore before returning to our room to relax for the evening. iPads are available in each room for guest use, although sadly, the wifi was down during our stay. Each area also offers a keurig for coffee and tea.
Breakfast the morning was less formal but equally delicious. As a vegetarian I did not feel jipped or disappointed - the kitchen clearly knows what they are doing. We checked out happily with an agreement that we definitely want to return. Definitely a great getaway for couples.

I am happy to hear that you found us and enjoyed your visit to the Hillbrook Inn! I am also glad to know that we were able to accommodate you at our companion property known as Hawthorn. The beautifully appointed estate was reconstructed and opened as suites in February 2013. We are honored to share the property with you.

I personally remember approaching your table and I am glad that you enjoyed the evening. Chef Justin took special time in assuring you had a pleasant vegetarian meal prepared for you both. He even went to the farmers market that day to purchase special items for the seating. Our culinary team takes pride in making sure that every guest experiences the “Taste of Hillbrook”, and tries to create menus that are pleasing. Thank you for noticing all their efforts, they are happy to accommodate!
I apologize the Wi-Fi was down during your stay. There are perks to living in the country, but that is not one of them unfortunately. We have called frontier our internet provider and have had it fixed since your stay.
We would love to visit with you in the future and create another special experience! I appreciate all your feedback and hope you have a wonderful day!
