First the postives:
Wonderful location, a working farm with a wonderful view of Lake Champlain and the mountains of NY on the other side.
Photos of inn from the outside will look great.
The food was wonderful.
Service staff seems to be mostly well meaning but utterly untrained college kids. If you have ever been to a Ritz Carlton, and if you are able to pay for this Inn, you probably have, you will immediately know what I mean. A typical example: when I brought my car up from the parking area to the front entrance to put the luggage in at check out, I was immediately told "I hope you will be out of here quick." It was very odd, and typical of the service.
The rooms are interesting. If you like dusty old furniture and moldy old bathrooms, I guess you will be happy. I felt like every time I turned over in the bed, a cloud of dust arose. At the least, for $ 300+ per night they could replace the beds this century.
I would not stay here again unless professional management were to manage the property and to rehabilitate the physical plant. It was fun, but not worth over $ 1100 for a family of four for one night with dinner and breakfast.
