We agree fully with all prior reviews. The Inn is quite beautifully done and the Inn Keepers could not be nicer. I asked myself what information I could provide that would add insight to extra discriminating travelers. First, it is VERY comfortable. That is a sine qua non. They provide a very nice computer for your use and wi if is available everywhere.
Although I chose a suite, the aesthetic was not as good as the Inn. The cottages were small (not always top end fixtures or bed covers, but nice enough), very private, but Inn rooms are often less expensive and nicer The Inn itself is enormously soothing but not in the sense of most Relais et Chateaux, like the Charlotte Inn on Martha's Vineyard, for example, among others.
If it is luxury you want, this is not it. If it is gracious pleasant comy and warm surroundings with a lovely breakfast, proximity to town and the countryside, and personal attention to you as a guest, this is it.
If you go, do visit the orchard and Furnace Brook Winery--loads of fun.
So, in sum, do not buy the highest price room here-- it is not worth the cost--but is the Inn worth a stay? Absolutely. Just understand that some hyperbolic descriptions may not apply to well traveled persons who seek luxurious environs. My expectations are always very high--I travel a lot. About 1 in 10 Inns rate a 5 from me. This is an A- on my list, a solid 4 out of 5. I enjoyed its comfort, if not sybaritic luxury.
