My husband and I decided we needed a getaway to celebrate his return from a four month stint of working in North Dakota. We have a 2 1/2 year old son who was staying with grandma so we didn't want to go too far from home, just somewhere that was NOT home so we could relax and not worry about cleaning etc. I choose All Seasons based on the great reviews, lovely pictures of the rooms and the reputation for being peaceful.
I'm so glad we picked All Seasons!
We were greeted by Dale and Susan who showed us around the B&B. We stayed in the River Bend room which is on the main floor, right by the dining room. One might think it not to be the best of rooms due to location but we loved it because we could pop right out for breakfast in the morning and we basically had the entire living room to ourselves most evenings and mornings for a friendly (ok we snipe at each other a bit but it's a loving gesture) game of cribbage or chess.
Our room (River Bend) was cozy and we happily spent most of our weekend there. The electric fireplace was cute and I loved lounging by it while listening to an audiobook. The bench seat overlooking the river was another favorite lounging spot. I also loved the large jacuzzi tub and the tiled shower. The bed was comfortable though my only quibble was that the pillows weren't quite plump or downy enough (but I freely admit I'm a pillow snob).
Breakfast in the mornings was delicious and a welcome addition to our stay. Assistant innkeeper Julieann was a quiet but friendly presence as she presented our yummy breakfast each morning. I can't remember everything we ate but a delicious kiwi, yogurt and homemade granola sticks out in my mind as well as a wonderful raspberry scone. Oh, and how could I forget the daily dessert treats left in our room! Yum!
We had a mini-fridge in our room which was wonderful for the cheese we bought to snack on and enabled us to stay put even more! The B&B has tea and sodas available round the clock in the TV room and I nursed a cup of Earl Grey on a perpetual basis during our stay.
Now that I'm back to the daily grind I already miss All Seasons. It was exactly the relaxing trip we needed.
