I have said it before, but as we continue to travel we continue to find unique places obviously. This bed and breakfast is undoubtedly the most unique place we have stayed yet, and it is a new favorite that we will certainly return to. Rooms, grounds, and trails are meticulous. We stayed in the gardeners cottage. Breakfast is amazing and... More

I always joke about our quest for luxury when we travel. We finally found it at Irish Hollow. They have absolutely nailed casual elegance. The owners and staff were so nice and fun to talk to. We stayed mid week in the Gardner's Cottage. The cottage was gorgeous (platformed hot tub with fireplace, shower room, screened porch with french doors... More

Coming from a busy winter season in Argentina, I was desperately looking for some vacation and time off in nature, peace and beauty. The Inn at Irish Hollow was the perfect "green" setting with the lovely sounds of birds chirping everywhere you set foot. Each meal was not only a work of art, but also made with so much love...

My fiancee and I spent 3 days for our anniversary. We had a guest room at the Main Inn, which was very cozy, peaceful, and well-decorated. Unfortunately, it wasn't as clean as we would have liked. I was able to discuss this with the owner, who gave a sincere apology and explained that he was training new staff. He thanked... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in June of 2016 for a baby moon before our first child. The Inn at Irish Hollow was a wonderful retreat. The surrounding area is so beautiful and peaceful. The Inn is nestled on 500 acres of rolling farmland and wooded hills which we found very relaxing. We plan on returning soon... More

I've stayed in several rooms in the main building and 3 different cottages at the Inn over the years. Each one is wonderful! All of them are romantic peaceful and quiet. The French Maid's cottage, any of the stone cottages, and the Gardener's cottage is spectacular. The food has always been mouthwatering and the meals are consistent with the seasons.... More

We loved every second at the Inn. Our cottage was fabulous. Perfect escape and place to spend our 12th wedding anniversary. The food was to die for! Staff was friendly and super accommodating. Can't wait to return. Looking forward to many more trips here.

We met friends who had stayed here many times. It was the first time for us and we will definitely be back. Our room was in the main building and very nice. We also saw a cottage...those are amazing. Built by the owners, they are fairly new but they look old because of the ingenious design and materials. One of... More
