Beautiful yet, not-too-precious.
We returned for our 2nd stay at the Kemble .We had been guests, pre- renovations, in the spring and wanted to see what they had done. Lovely staff, we met Camillo , the new House Manger, who was attentive and delightful. He is an asset and will likely be able to see the Inn throughout its next transitional stages.
Our only complaints: #301 and Muzak in dining Room.
Due to a wedding, the Inn was booked but for room #301. This room was not up to the rest of the Inns standards, in any way. The ceilings, due to slanted configurations and likely historic building limits on what they can do, impedes normal range of motion (and standing)! We hit our head several times and mattress was old, uncomfortable sweeps in center, not pretty linens as is the norm throughout the rest of rooms we saw-It was average, bordering on a depressing room. Very disappointing. rugs was stained.
They might want to consider taking the 3rd floor off until its properly renovated. Camillo was open to suggestions, non-defensive, and upgraded us when our previous rm on 2nd floor became available. This was appreciated and renewed our enthusiasm for the place!
Breakfasts are so very nice, great pancakes. Nice quiet environment. We were happy to see Paul, our server, whom we had met last spring. He was again, gracious and shared his unique experience of the area. He couldn't have been more helpful offering to research horseback riding places for us. We'll miss him.
The best surprise was the restaurant: TopsI 'm a vegetarian and a lovely and interesting plate was created-Rivaled Grammercy Tavern in Manhattan. Cocktails were terrific ( Try the Falling Pear) , Josh, our server also a doll, great.
Our only issue was the odd selection of music: cheezy muzak streamed into dining room playing Madonna and Abba. It was rather funny, yet they can find better choices.
The restaurant could become a destination.
We had a wonderful weekend and became engaged-the only positive association to room #301!
We look forward to returning for Thanksgiving weekend.
