The Inn at Iris Meadows is a creation from a dream.... Two people who came together later in life who brought their talents, hopes and dreams and made them into a spectacular Inn for the rest of us to enjoy. It is a labor of love; a timeless treasure; a work of art.
It is a combination of business saavy, journalistic history, gardening talents and passions, beautiful seamstress work, and years of developing a taste for delicious foods and re-creating those specialties in their kitchen.
Words cannot express our stay. It was wonderful and I often do NOT recommend something to others because our tastes vary so much. I feel, in this case however, that most people will fall in love with this lovely inn and the innkeepers themselves. Their knowledge of the area, the life of the Amish, and the history of the home itself is enough to write a book. Their lovely smiles, their willingness to make your stay memorable, and their devotion to this inn all come together in a place filled with incredible antiques, lovely china, a fine collection of magazines to keep you reading for days, and a garden that is nothing less than photograph worthy.
Stay for at least a few days....our stay was way too short, but we had no idea what we were getting into. It will be the new standard for bed and breakfasts and we've been in so many across the globe. I could write a book myself!
Make certain to ask if you want a room with a separate shower as there is a room that offers such. Others have large spa-like tubs that offer hand-held showers. The porch is magnificent and is filled with chairs, rockers, and other comfy spots to relax.... grab a cup of tea from the guest kitchen, take a deep breath and relax....THIS is what a vacation for us is all about.
The street name is so appropriate for this lovely inn....Love Lane.... perfection! Thank you to the innkeepers for working so hard. I know how much work this is and how sometimes it goes unrewarded. Know in your hearts that it is a gem and YOU made it that way....
