First, a disclaimer: my wife and I were married at the Glen Rock 14 years ago. It is now under different owners. That being said we recently stayed at the inn to celebrate our anniversary. We had stopped in a few months before to see what was what under the present owners. At that time we had a delicious dinner and resolved to return.
What we found:
The food is consistently good to excellent. The chef, Sean, has delicious specials which compliment the regular menu. Highpoints for me included the Jalapeño Popper Chicken, the Bacon-wrapped scallops, and the amazing mushroom swiss burger. Also don't miss trying the focaccia bread. Drinks are reasonable and well made and they also feature wines from a local vineyard (Seven Hills) that we liked so much we visited It the next day and bought a case!
On to the room. The "suite" is huge. Equipped with more amenities than most luxury hotels, it is well worth a visit. The owners and staff made us feel very welcome by delivering a bottle of wine to the room and ensuring that everything was perfect. It seems as though they are still in the process of restoring the rooms for anyone that minds a few old stains on the carpet or a small patch of peeling paint on the ceiling, this might not be the place for you. Overall, the room was clean and comfortable. We were especially delighted the next morning (not too early) by the sight of the old steam train passing through right below the window! All in all a memorable stay.
Kudos to owners Terry and Cindy, and general manager Alyssa as well as the entire staff for doing such a great job. My wife remarked to me that although our wedding day at the inn was very special, she had a better time on this anniversary because she was more relaxed and could enjoy herself thanks to the staff making it so easy.
