Review of Dana Place Inn - CLOSED

Dana Place Inn
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights and still did not have enough time to do everything. The food and service excellent. The grounds were peaceful and relaxing. The place is a little dated but has that country cottage feel that is very "charming". If you are looking for a hotel like atmosphere- this is not your place. But, if you are looking for a "home away from home"- this is your place. We will defiantly be back for another visit. Storyland is about 5 min from the Inn and the package deal was a great value.

We stayed in New Englad for two weeks in the summer and this was by far the best place we stayed. The Inn is charming and has tons of extras - a library with books and toys for the kids, tubes for swimming in the river, great river trails and access, bikes for riding around. The staff is fabulous and have great recommendations for local attractions. The location is ideal - next to the river in a peaceful setting and just a short drive to local hikes and Storyland. The breakfast is also amazing, I can still taste the blueberry pancakes. I can't remember the last time you could order from a menu from a 'breakfast included' place.

We spent a weekend at the Dana Place Inn and had a great time. The winter package was a good deal. It is an older place but that just gives it a lot of character. It was clean and the food was very good. A highlight of our visit was the wonderful piano lady Lorraine who entertained us both Fri & Sat night during wine and cheese time and dinner. She played nonstop and was very delightful. We also appreciated Robin, who went out of her way to be helpful. We plan to stay here again.

Just spent 3 nights there through New Year's and so glad we decided to give Dana Place a try. After reading some of the negative reviews, I have to admit that I was a little skeptical, but found our room to be extremely cozy and the bed so warm and inviting! The breakfast that was included every morning was very good, and dinner was excellent! The staff, who handled everything from the front desk, bartending, serving meals, to cleaning the rooms, were very accommodating and friendly. The evenings spent in the Library with the fire roaring were so relaxing and we truly enjoyed the time spent conversing with other guests at the Inn.

Keep in mind that this is an old inn, approx. 150 years old, so it does not offer all the amenities that one might expect but definitely worth the stay! I'm hoping that they continue to make improvements and updates to the Inn so that guests can continue to enjoy their hospitality!
