...and Lynette Scofield is one of them. We stayed at this Inn in July; my review is overdue, I know. But have you any idea how many times, to how many people II have spoken about our stay there? There are some places, some atmospheres that touch you in such a meaningful way that what happens to you is that your joy at being alive among other human beings fills you up with hope. I'm not kidding. How often do you encounter genuine goodness? Feel genuinely welcome? Here you do. It is a charming old house with a history (check it out), cozy and clean and homey and nice. All the things you want from an Inn. The staff reflects the huge heart of this place and so does the food. I can't say enough. And I'm sorry it took me so long to say it, but I was almost afraid I would not find the words to speak about this ineffable thing that is found here: love. Thank you, Lynette, we will come back, but in that magical way of all true things, you have never left us.
