“A bit disappointing due to renovation work but good food and service”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went for lunch with friends to eat out on terrace at the inn. Unfortunately they didn't have service out on the terrace due to renovations so we ate in the little interior courtyard off the lobby. Food and service was fine, but the ambience was broken by workmen who came out to the courtyard and ran machines while we were still eating, albeit briefly. Understandable that they want to finish under deadline, but we might have been forewarned to eat inside.

Overall, the inn and grounds has a classic, low key look. Looking forward to going back and trying again when the work is finished.

“Anniversary celebration”

enjoyed happy hour drinks and appetizers; then moved into the cozy library room of the dining area and enjoyed a wonderful meal by the fireplace; our server Harry was great!

“Excellent renovations on going - A bit of disappointment with the Restaurant”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We recently had dinner at the Inn. The seating was very nice in the library. The service was good. The meals were good but not great. They missed on one of the entres. The real disappointment was the $50 corkage fee for the special larger bottle of wine that I brought to the restaurant. I understand that they want to sell their own bottles but this was a wine they don't carry and $50 is over-the-top.
