WOW!! What more can I say. We arrived at the Rock in a whirlwind, whilst traveling the country working. Could not have stayed at a more relaxing place. The service that we received from Chris and Pat was by far above and beyond what we were expecting. They accommodated our needs and looked after us so well that it really did feel like a 'home away from home'. After eating out in the town the first day, we thought we'd try the restaurant at the rock. Needless to say, the food matched the service and we spent the rest of our stay looking forward to the next meal. As we found, Chris has quite a talent in the kitchen, and was more than happy to make meals for us that weren't on the menu. I must say though, no matter what I ordered, nothing compared to the 'Pork Loin - with home made apple sauce and fries. A must have off the menu. The room we stayed in was secluded and very private. We were able to sleep with doors and curtains open, which when you are from a big city, is bliss. Can not wait till the next time I am back down that part of the country. Will be back to the Eatery On The Rock for sure.
