We spent one night at the Laurel Lodge and enjoyed our stay immensely. Chris, the innkeeper, greeted us upon our arrival. He gave us a tour of the house, told us about the history of the building and the various amenities and then showed us to our rooms. Our room was spacious with lovely views of the valley below. The bed linens were luxurious and the bed was comfortable. Our room had a TV and the Wi-Fi was as good as it gets - better than my high speed wireless home network! The porch was an inviting place to relax and to enjoy the amazing view. The house is beautifully cared for and everything is immaculate.
There was a wonderful chocolate tart waiting for us after our return from dinner as well as hot and cold drinks available anytime we wanted and the comfort of gas fireplaces to enjoy in the public rooms. We had dinner in one of the restaurants suggested by Chris which we thoroughly enjoyed. The living room had several newspapers and magazines from which to choose. Breakfast the following morning was scrumptious and the presentation was beautiful. Chris served some of the best coffee we've ever tasted. As well, he was genuinely interested in what our plans were for the day of our departure and offered some welcome information which helped make our trip very pleasant.
My husband and I thought that the hospitality and accommodations were simply wonderful and the attention to detail abounded. Chris truly made us feel "at home". Do not miss this place when you are in the area.
