Taking my wife on a secret getaway trip, I was looking for a nice B&B, near a casino (she loves the slots). After much research, I found the Hillbrook Inn & Spa located near Charles Town, WV. It is only eight miles from the Hollywood Casino and only and an hour and a half from our home. What a great experience from start to finish. The day could not have been any better. The service, food and accommodations at Hillbrook were awesome, and most of the Trip Adviser reviews were right on target. Andy and Marcy (husband and wife) handled our reservations and they could not have been more informative and gracious with our every question and need. We stayed in the cottages, specifically, the Spring cottage, up the hill from the Main House. Highly recommend any one of the four cottage choices. All are great, but maybe pick the Winter because of the view and King bed. The ambiance of the place is romantic and very private. The rooms are large, with an I-Pad included, an oversized jacuzzi tub and a gas fireplace. Upon check in, Bobbi greeted us with a welcome cocktail of prosecco with grapefruit and cranberry juice. She gave us a brief tour of the main house, history of the Inn, and spent a few minutes going over the charges for the day. As great as the service is, the food is the main star. We selected the five course dinner and was it delicious! We had a scallop appetizer, broccoli cream soup, chicken breast stuffed with spinach, filet mignon and a chocolate pate dessert which tasted like a delicious slice of nutty fudge with fresh strawberries and cream. The dinner is a Chef's Choice, so you do not know what's on the menu, but he will take into account any diet restrictions. Breakfast is included with the initial rate, so don't miss that. They have two seatings, either 8:30 or 9:45 AM. Oh, at the end of our fabulous dinner, Chef Justin came out to the dining room and greeted the guests- nice touch. We heard Living Social does a deal with Hillbrook but be aware it does not include the cottages. They have 18 total rooms but some are two miles down the road from the main house. If you are looking for a nice escape from daily living, travel to Charles Town, during the week (better rates), book a room at Hillbrook, gamble a little and experience fine dining in a bucolic setting that will enhance any relationship!!!
