I've returned to the inn several times each summer for the past 8 years -- and last summer my son and his wife held their wedding here. So, for me, it's a unique and special place. The inn itself is lovely and relaxing and beautifully situated on the water. I've spent many hours sitting in one of the lawn chairs with a book, just soaking in the view. And, unlike a couple of the sourpusses who posted anti-dog rants about the Inn, I love the fact that it's dog friendly. It's fun to see dogs frolicking on the lawn and I never saw a canine who wasn't under control. (The Inn's website could be more upfront about being dog friendly. This would keep the dog-haters away!) I swim every day and I adore the pool here. It's a large infinity pool and it's just stunning. And big enough so that you can easily swim laps even if other guests are hanging out in the pool splashing and playing. I was there during an unusually hot week, so that the water was hot tub temperature by later afternoon. Nothing the Inn could do about that, alas. (What they could do to improve things poolside is get the bee and wasp situation under control and silence the horrible nonstop pop song soundtrack which just ruins an otherwise lovely and tranquil spot.) I booked two rooms, one for me and the other for my son and his wife. We were given an upgrade -- both rooms were spacious and lovely and had water views. Breakfast in the dining room was excellent. We also enjoyed an informal dinner in the pub. One thing I am ALWAYS grateful for when I stay here -- excellent coffee is available all morning in the lobby for folks (like me) who need coffee when we first wake up. There is also a computer available in the library for folks (like me) who still haven't got laptops. The Linden Spa is out of this world. I've never had a bad spa treatment there. We all -- me and my son and his wife -- had a wonderful time relaxing together in our spa robes snacking on fresh fruit before and after our spa treatments in the room dedicated to that purpose. Another great thing about the Inn is that it's easy to stroll into the town. Interesting shops, a good candy store, a good coffee place and a good public library. But apart from everything I love about the Inn -- how beautiful and relaxing (and dogful!) it is, the very best thing about it is the staff. They are friendly and competent and eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible. (I'm talking about you, Nicole and Amanda!) But really -- all the folks who work here are just wonderful. The inn was recently upgraded. One good thing about the upgrade: many new activities, such as free yoga classes at a nearby yoga studio (the Inn provides free transportation) a morning "wag and walk." And kayaks! One bad thing: the Inn used to have a few rooms with two beds. Now all the rooms have just one bed. (My sister and I used to come here together but we don't really want to share a bed. Even a very large bed. So now we go to the Lodge at Woodloch.) In conclusion -- don't stay here if you hate dogs. Otherwise, it's a fabulous spot for a relaxing getaway.
