My wife and I can’t say enough positive things about this Inn and about Su and Andy’s hospitality. As we approached the front door Andy had little doubt who we were and welcomed us by name. We learned quite a bit from them about the history of the Inn and of the area. They were ready with maps and a marker to show us the best routes to what we wanted to see, as well as recommendations of places to visit and eat. We purchased the Clay Hill Farms package and went to the restaurant for dinner the first night. It was a great place and a perfect meal. Can’t recommend this place enough. Service was excellent and everything was cooked to perfection. The most enjoyable meal of recent memory.
We stayed in the York Harbor Suite and loved it! It was much larger than I expected, with a bedroom, a sitting room and an enclosed porch with lots of windows. The bed was very comfy. The room was really clean, as were the common areas. I was very impressed with how well maintained the Inn is. I do a lot of work in my own home and know how difficult it is to pay attention to details, and this old Victorian home is very well kept. It had the feel of an old home, but the cleanliness of a new home. The hand painted floors in our room were impressive. After our trip to Clay Hill, we enjoyed the warm evening on the front porch, where there was a hammock and several chairs. For breakfast it was just warm enough to enjoy eating on the porch as well, as there are tables on it, too. It was very relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, too! They are very good cooks. We got to try a few new breakfast dishes, but also have bagels and English muffin, among other things. There was always hot coffee and tea available and hot cocoa, with a variety of juices.
I’m someone who is used to staying at hotels. This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and the experience was so much better than at a hotel. Champagne and chocolates were included, as it was our 10th Anniversary. I hope to have another stay in the near future. Thank you, Su and Andy!
