The inn is on beautiful grounds with a creek running across the front and lots of trees. One morning we saw elk very close by. The Van Morrison playing in the trees on the property was a little unnecessary we thought. It is also a very quiet location, and walking distance to the village.
We stayed in two different rooms. One was a two-bedroom suite. It was beautifully decorated and very cosy, but I would not recommend it for two couples. The bedrooms were very small, so we used one to sleep in and put our stuff in the other. The shower wasn't great and the bathroom basin didn't drain properly. The walls were a little thin. We also stayed in the Creekside Cottage (which is divided into two separate rooms). Again, beautifully decorated and very romantic, but a little on the small side. And while the bed was very beautiful-looking (I think it might have been antique), it squeaked quite badly.
The breakfasts were very interesting. Bagels, muesli, fruit, usually a homecooked egg-based dish, a home-cooked sweet and pastries. I liked them a lot, my husband found them stodgy and didn't like them at all, so not to everyone's taste.
The staff were extremely friendly and professional at all times. We felt very well looked after, although there were times when there was no one at the front desk and we couldn't contact the staff by phone (got put through to the machine). Although it wasn't anything urgent, I could imagine this would be a bit annoying in certain situations.
Overall, if the folksy, crafty theme at this inn is to your taste, then you are in for a treat. However, for the prices being charged, a lot of people would expect a better finish on the rooms - better showers, bigger beds that don't squeak - bigger rooms, and someone in the front office at all times.
