For my birthday, I was surprised by a one night getaway at the Inn at Weston. When we arrived (Nov. 10), we sat in the cozy living room area sipping on fresh cider and homemade cookies while we waited to check in. Before we met Linda, we were greeted by their friendly golden retriever, Lexi. Being welcomed by this cute, affectionate dog made us feel right at home! The innkeepers, Bob and Linda, were both exceptionally accommodating and hospitable. Linda gave us a tour of the Inn and included some historical facts about the Inn and the town of Weston, VT. When she brought us to our room, she walked us through how to use the fireplace, hot tub, and steam shower. I really appreciated the pointers because it can be frustrating going to a new place and trying to figure out how to work things. Linda really made us feel welcome and comfortable upon our arrival. For dinner, we went down to the bar/lounge area and sat by the crackling fireplace. Bob and one of the servers suggested a delicious red wine cuvee. After we enjoyed our wine by the fire, we sat in the dining room, and our server was friendly, witty, and very on point. As my boyfriend and I had both worked in the restaurant/service industry in the past, we can occasionally be critical of our dining experience. Our service was fantastic! To start, we ordered mussels placed atop curried butternut squash bisque. Both the mussels and bisque complimented each other nicely. After our appetizer, we were brought a mango sorbet. The sorbet was a deliciously perfect palette cleanser. For dinner, we ordered two entrees and shared them. We ordered a steak, I think it was a strip steak, with risotto and seasonal vegetables. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the risotto and vegetables complimented the flavor of the steak very well. We also ordered the scallop dish which was served over a pumpkin (or squash?) ravioli. The ravioli, as Linda later explained, is made locally and is very flavorful! We had to send the scallops back because they were a little too rare for our liking, but when they came back they were delicious. After dinner we enjoyed a nice soak in the hot tub and lounged in the comfy spa robes that were provided. The king size bed was lavishly decorated and very comfortable to sleep in. The room was really just perfect. The art work that they have around the Inn is really stunning, too! I found myself admiring this beautiful watercolor orchid painting that hung next to the fireplace in our room. As a very amateur orchid collector, I couldn’t wait to check out Bob’s greenhouse. But first… breakfast! Breakfast was served in the dining room with plenty of fresh homemade muffins, fruit, yogurt and even homemade granola! We started with that, coffee, and the New York Times. For breakfast we had a spinach and fontina (I think that was the cheese) omelette, it was fresh and delicious. After breakfast, Bob gave us a tour of the greenhouse. I was blown away! He showed us the Oncidium “Sharry baby” that smelled like chocolate. It was such an amazing bonus to be able to experience the greenhouse! After the greenhouse, it was time for us to head out. Nick asked Bob where a good hike might be. Bob sat down and drew us out a detailed map and sent us to a great hiking spot where we spent a few hours enjoying the outdoors. I couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful our getaway was at the Inn at Weston. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an overall great experience at a Bed and Breakfast with overwhelming charm, character, and friendliness. Thanks again to Bob and Linda (and Lexi) for running a true gem of an inn.
