We decided to go to the Springside inn and stay overnight because we saw an ad in the paper for a Nashville Singer (Karla Davis) that was playing there the same night. We made reservations and luckily had a room for us the same day we called. Beautiful grounds. Plenty of parking. The building is older but very well kept up. Our room was extremely clean. It had a TV and a phone. The bathroom we were in had a large claw-foot tub and stand up shower. Bathroom also extremely clean. The bed was very comfortable - ahhhhh....
The dining room was closed for the show - BUT - they offered hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, clams, lobster salad, sausage sandwiches, salads. It was a special for the show that was in the Ballroom. My husband and I both got the chicken sandwiches (fancy chicken sandwiches and delicious). We figured since they made those sandwiches so good, we definitely want to go back for a nice dinner - probably our anniversary. The restaurant that was set up for dinner, but closed off to people was very pretty. Looks like it would be for a special dinner (like our anniversary).
The Ballroom was a pretty room - would love to have a wedding there. (They also had a gazebo and seats set up outside for a wedding - so you can get married right there on the grounds.)
The area of Auburn NY that the Inn is located is a very pretty lakeside town. Beautiful large houses - lovely to drive around an look at. There is not much else around within walking distance - but if I went it would be for a romantic dinner and room overnight. Don't need to go anyplace else.
the City of Auburn is very close and there seems to be some fun pubs there (seen on TripAdvisor).
By the way, Karla Davis - look for her. She is pretty and extremely talented. She is going to make a second album. She previewed 3 of her new songs she will record on the album and loved 2 of them. I hope she does well in Nashville. She is not only talented, but very personable. She really seems like she has a great personality - very nice.
We will DEFINITELY return to the Springside Inn.
