All-around delightful, from the moment we opened the door and felt the roaring fire in the fireplace. Innkeepers Sharalee and Louis are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Breakfasts were tasty and very appropriate for pre-cross country skiing (i.e., not an overload of carbs but instead eggs, veggies, even a quinoa cake). Afternoon tea with fruit and cakes -- super yum! And the teas are real leaf teas, perfect for us tea aficionados. Our room (Peddlers Room) was comfortable, with good reading lights on either side of the bed. We chose that one because it's the only one with a full tub (not just a shower) -- nice to soak after a hard ski. We appreciated being able to adjust our own thermostat. The bedroom had no chairs to sit and read in, but the living room is fine for that, especially when the fireplace is blazing.
We are cross-country skiers who have been going to Garnet Hill for 30+ years, and we've stayed at just about every motel, inn, and lodging in North Creek, North River, and Warrensburg (some of which have gone defunct), including Garnet Hill Lodge itself. Coupled with all of its other benefits, Cedarwood's proximity to Garnet Hill is ideal. We recommend it to folks who want the quieter setting and the opportunity to eat at different places in the area.
Roads were well-plowed on the cold weekend we were there.
