Tucked away at the end of a tree-lined drive is a majestic, two-story, white frame house with a lawn stretching down to a peaceful cove at the back. It's like a return to a serene and tranquil time of years past with its rocking chairs, bicycles, and canoe, along with chances to fish from the pier, toss horseshoes, or just relax in the hammock. The inn's hosts, Greg and Lori, provide spacious, light-filled, airy guestrooms that are not only beautiful and tastefully decorated, but also comfortable. Updated, adjoining baths, assured us of privacy and we had a sound night's rest. Each morning, we awoke to the far-away sounds of birds as they flew over the peaceful waters of the cove, and next, we smelled delicious aromas coming from the kitchen where Greg had prepared a delectable and memorable breakfast. Lori helped him serve and no detail was left undone, even down to the warming of the plates. Greg and Lori are personable, engaging hosts who seem to be attuned to their guests' every wish or need, and we found them to be attentive and accommodating without being intrusive or interfering. To find a special get-away place for quiet moments, we loved the first-floor library, with its ornate fireplace and feel of serenity. We spent our last night down by the water, lying on the pier, looking up at the myriad of stars. A truly charming and delightful inn that is beautiful, peaceful, and a special retreat.
