We actually live just a half hour away from the inn and over the years have stayed here many times for an easy and relaxing getaways, (family weddings, etc.) with great food. Our dinner was by far the best part, it was excellent.
We had the package that included accommadations and dinner. We had appetizers, (both very good) our waiter was from Jersey and we gave him a brief lesson in proper pronounciation of "Scallops". Matthew was a good sport and provided great service throughout our meal. He was very polite, attentive and personable. He even brought our desserts to our room after we finished dinner.
Our dinner was fabulous! My salmon was cooked perfectly, my husband's filet was cooked medium-well (no Pink, as requested) and he could cut it with his fork! He said it was the most tender filet he had ever had and the chef definately knows what he is doing.
The room looked the same as always and some of the furniture really should be replaced. The bed was very comfortable and the tub and fireplace (and the view) definately make up for the furnishings and the small room size.
The continetal breakfast was a little dissapointing. I've had better at 3 star hotel chains. Less options, but some hot ones probably would have been less expensive for the kitchen and would have been a HUGE improvement. Maybe something simple like, scabbled eggs, bacon and home fries with some fresh pastries and fresh fruit?? Raisin bran for breakfast was a bit of a let down after dinner the night before.
My biggest complaint is the price. Our package included (2) appetizers, (2) dinners $24 or less each, you pay the difference if entree is over that amount (both our dinners were) plus (2) desserts; we were quoted $220, plus tax and gratuity. Our bill with tax, tip, alcohol (2 cocktails, 2 beers) and $5 extra for the overage of our meals came to $297.00 PLUS $25.00 in the lounge for drinks before dinner. Pretty expensive for a night out for two.
They used to offer really inexpensive getaways generally in the winter months and this is the first time I can recall staying during the "tourist season" and probably (based on price) the last time. I'll keep an eye out for the winter specials for next time!
