Pineapple Hill was the perfect setting for a college "ya-ya" classmate reunion. I knew I was in the right place when Roy showed me to my room-the Goldfinch. All 9 rooms are named after birds and my room had a comfortable bed and a wonderful room air conditioner which provided me with not only self adjusting controlls but a desired "white noise" for sleeping comfort. Very little time was spent in the room because "catching up" was what my roommates had gathered for. Pineapple Hill provided us with several idyllic locations to talk to our hearts content-the lovely new deck, a sunken garden and a beautiful pool area. We eventually explored the lovely town of New Hope and Roy and Scott discovered us-still talking-at one of the delightful river restaurants which they themselves had recommended. We laughed when we returned later that night to see them on the porch as they said "Well, girls, did you have a good time?"-just as our dorm mother would have said 45 years ago! Our wonderful hosts, Scott and Roy, have created a setting which is comfortable, warm and inviting. Pineapple Hill is so beautifically decorated that it invites inquiry. Scott and Roy enthusiastically shared with us stories of their family histories and generational treasures. Breakfasts were culinary delights-I am still drooling over the cheese blintzes topped with warm, fresh blueberry compote. Personable, gracious, talented, and accomodating are all attributes of our Pineapple Hill hosts-Roy and Scott. Pineapple Hill is the setting for what will always remain a favorite memory.
