The grounds are elegant, not just immaculate, reflecting great care and discipline. The check-in process is simple. There is an elevator for reaching the upstairs rooms. The suites are story-like with histories that may be fallacious but fun. We stayed in the Montcalm suite. We spent two nights, dining on premises the second night. We went to the Sagamore night...

This was our first stay at the Inn. The accommodations were lovely. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Joan came to our rescue and managed to secure a WONDERFUL trail ride with Bennett's Riding Stable after we learned a local stable had closed for the season. She was so helpful, and the ride was the highlight... More

It was a delightful place. It is as upscale as accommodations get. It is basically an old European castle experience and I just got back from an upscale visit to Scotland. Save the airfare and stay here :)

We were very impressed with the accommodations and service. the first nite. Restaurant service was very good as was the food. The problem that made our rating come down is that we were not part of a wedding and wanted a nice quiet romantic weekend. However we were on a floor that an entire wedding party was getting ready in... More
