We arrived at 9:00 PM, and our key was waiting for us with a welcome note from the owner. The room was spotless, comfortable and very large. The breakfast was incredible. In addition to all of the usual breakfast items, the special of the day was corned beef hash with poached eggs. When was the last time you had perfectly poached eggs on corned beef hash?! In addition, the sausage and bacon came from real pigs, with a depth of flavor that we have lost over the years with processed food. The owner, Marie, is not only a fine cook, bit she is also an engaging fount of knowledge on the area. We will definitely be back.
