We stayed at The Black Sheep Inn when our daughter was graduating from Alfred University, and we swore we wanted to go back. Debbie and Mark are "uber"-hosts. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfasts are a really special treat. Everything was as we remembered after a few intervening years, and the heavy rain on the roof added to the cozy atmosphere. We had a very enjoyable breakfast with another couple from western NY, and even bought a pair of the crocks Debbie used to make her dish in. It's relaxing; it's friendly, and there's always good company. We stayed in the Pleasant Valley Room - spacious and a wonderful shower! I only regret that we spent so much time at dinner and didn't have a chance to sit out on the patio and share some of the wine we were buying on the trip.
