We have been going to the Kilburn manor the week after Christmas for the last 4 years now. The breakfasts Suzanne makes are simply delicious. Certainly something to look forward to every morning. Each morning is a wonderful surprise. Even better than the breakfasts is the warm and relaxed atmosphere of the place. We enjoy the conversations with Suzanne and with other guests she might have.
Suzanne makes us feel very welcomed and comfortable in her home. It's almost like visiting a family member when we go up there. Every year, she even tacked our son's height on the wall in the kitchen! You can check out all the other kids' heights as they come with their families each year.
The historic Victorian building has been lovingly preserved. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and very comfortable. I especially love the library. Check out the pictures I took. However, these pictures do not do justice to the elegance of the place. I can't recommend Kilburn manor enough. Needless to say, we're already planning to go back there again next December. No other place will do for us in Malone.
PS: There is a very family friendly ski resort called Titus Mountain about 10 minutes from the manor. That's another reason why we come every year. Sometimes we also go to Montreal for dinner. It's only 1 hour & 15 minutes away from Malone.
