Sunday Brunch Is Heaven's Manna for the Gluten-Free - Best Brunch in Town

The Inn and the surrounding landscape is beautiful and serene. The food is well prepared, healthy and often organic. The service can be slow, but if you go for the experience and are not in a hurry, this is a romantic and tasty outing. Dinners are a la carte and quite expensive. There is an... read more

Truth? We think the chef might not be right in the head...and probably doesn't taste what he is putting out of the kitchen. Shameful actually. Our party of 4 was hopeful the 5 course NYE tasting menu matched up to the enchanted atmosphere. Unfortunately the menu was more expertly crafted than the actual meal. Soon after we were seated I...

Let me start with the positive: the setting is amazing and most of the staff is friendly (we did have one waiter who looked as if his pet rabbit had died that very morning). However, my girlfriend and I decided to spend New Year's Eve here and it turned out to be very disappointing. We chose the special New Year's... More

Made a reservation for a birthday dinner for my son, and they are organized and committed to stay sustainable and use fresh organic and confirmed the reservation such that they had enough people working to handle the number of diners. We arrived just past sunset and the place was truly magical, not just the lights which are everywhere, but the... More

Sunday brunch was ok, good selection though it wasn't cheap ($41 for buffet) . The music really put us off... The worst I ever heard in a restaurant...I mean: 'Greensleeves' played on the panpipes, along with many fake medieval retakes - Ouch, really? Also thought the 'hey, we're cool' was a bit overdone too (specially considering their taste in music...)... More

I came here with my boyfriend for the 7 course tasting menu- It was absolutely mind blowing. We got an outside table and could hear the water running through the forest while enjoying our beautiful meal. Will definitely come back

...so much so that we were all physically ill afterwards. Something had clearly been left out at room temperature too long.

We were a large group for Sunday brunch after attending a wedding elsewhere the night before. The umbrella tables with white table clothes and flower centerpieces made the area very festive. The buffet had a large selection of very tasty dishes. We totally enjoyed our experience here.
