After being overly stressed the last few days from work, etc; we decided to get in the car and just 'drive north' up 91 for a few hours and find something relaxing. We were directed to the Stone Hearth by chance after stopping at a local beer/wine specialty shop. We could not have asked for anything better!
The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.There were several excellent beers on tap, the food (stuffed cod for him and grilled salmon for me with a panko crusted goat cheese appetizer) was absolutely wonderful. The room was $120 with and exceptionally comfortable bed. It was shame it was rainy as the grounds looked beautiful with a fire-pit, corn-hole and ladder ball set up, and lovely garden. Breakfast was light and delicious with homemade scones and fresh fruit.
We will absolutely be back and hope to book the tavern/inn for a night for our closest friends. The innkeeper was generous in offering to provide a meal for all should we book again and set up the grounds with volleyball etc.
I highly recommend the Stone Hearth for a relaxing weekend. Just don't expect things to happen quickly - their motto is 'slow down and enjoy' - so please do so. It's worth it.
