After reading the reviews on The Baker House my wife and I decided to give it a try. Needless to say the reviews had it right. What a wonderful experience. We drove in early to have their Sunday brunch before checking in to the hotel. Katrina greeted us at the reception area and from then on we were treated to wonderful food, a fantastic suite and outstanding service by the staff. Katrina gave us a tour and some historical highlights of the property before seating us at our table. Brent was our butler and he made the stay at Baker House a journey back in time. He showed us to our suite and the second floor lounge areas for guests with the wonderful antiques and period décor. It captured a snapshot in time when the house was at it's prime and how the people might have lived in such elegance even if it was only their summer cottage. Brent was always available and provided us with fantastic service during our stay. Both brunch and dinner were excellent and the sunset toast was a delight. Check out went smoothly and we received a little treat basket for our drive home. During our stay we were treated more like family than a guest in a hotel. Will be back to the Baker House again.
