We stayed over the Labor Day weekend, while watching the Lime Rock historic racing (that was excellent, by the way), and the inn was full of face fans and locals, who all appeared so glad to have somewhere like the inn to eat. We had the spacious yellow room and I loved the furnishings - sofa upholstered in grey linen, and the most comfortable and lovely bed etc. I didn't know you could get an iron bedstead so big! The room needed a bit of a dust and I cleaned some marks off the chair and sofa, as they are too nice to see get spoiled.
The inn is an old building and you have to expect creaks and rattles - you can hear when other guests are talking in the hall or going up and down the stairs, no big deal. But the yellow room is over the front door and the room literally shook every time someone came in and out (that Saturday it was every few minutes) - people weren't slamming the door, its just a very heavy door in an old building.
The weather was very humid and the air con was great. The bathroom (no bath) is roomy, an extra self would be useful to put your toiletries etc on, as everytime I put things in a drawer, I leave them there!
When we arrived we asked 'what do people normally do for breakfast?' and the answer was "Well, we could leave something out for you, but most people go to the Toymakers Cafe", so we gathered breakfast wasn't included in the room rate. We ate twice in the inn's restaurant - my husband had the most wonderful salmon fishcakes with saffron rice and aspragus on the first night, another lovely fish dish the second evening and we had delicious desserts both evenings.
If we were in the area, I would stay here again and ask for the yellow room - that bed outweighs the rooms shakes!
