I am not one's typical Bed And Breakfast guy. My introduction to the proposition was several years ago in Nantucket, and I was in no particular rush to repeat the experience. I am also not one's typical mountain man. See where this is going? The Inn at Half Mile Farm will make a believer of even the the most hardened resort loving flatlander! After a brief encounter with the wrong room, all was right with the world. Vivian, Katie, Carol and Jason are nothing less than stellar! As we were the only couple at Thursday night's wine and appetizer event we had the opportunity to chat at length with Jason. After learning we had the Red Sox in common, I knew it would be a good week end.
The Breakfasts were gourmet--Eggs Benedict, Blueberry Pancakes, Cheese Grits, Schnitzel, Sausages----yummy! The room was spacious and very close to the open-24/7- common area where coffee, cookies, hors d'oeuvres, and wine were available according to the time of day.
The common area is a real asset , as it is a pre dinner gathering place for couples. We had conversations with total strangers with whom we had much in common and it added to the warmth of the venue.
The Inn is a short jaunt from town and in a beautiful setting, even in fog and rain.The staff was excellent and tended to all our needs. Housekeeping must have gotten training from Santa Claus, as they were in and out while we were having breakfast!
Whether one wishes for a quiet retreat from the city, a base for shopping in the area ,or hiking and enjoying the beauty of the mountains, it's all here at the Inn at Half Mile Farm!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- For guests of age 18 and over, Half-Mile Farm is that place where you relax as soon as you drive onto the property. A hilly expanse of green lawn welcomes you, and the main historic farmhouse reveals itself at the crest. Along the drive, Apple Lake glistens and offers canoes along its shore for guests to enjoy a soothing paddle. A chef-prepared breakfast begins each day for every guest, and evenings bring complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft beverages to enjoy with other guests or to take to your own little corner of the farm. A seasonal outdoor heated pool, grape arbor, vegetable garden and apple trees all cascade along the grounds. ... more less
