After a bruising many months of work, my husband and I were looking for a close-by getaway where we could just decompress. The Hillbrook Inn was just the place. There are wineries in the area and many outdoorsy things to do, but we just wanted comfort, quiet and good food. The Inn offered plenty of places to sit outside and read, listening to the leaves fall. Comfortable rooms and other places to settle in with a book or an area with a TV if your room doesn't have one.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and it was delicious. It's served in a sunroom that overlooks lovely grounds. The service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. You have the option to eat dinner at the Inn, at an additional charge and with a reservation: do not pass this up! The three dinners we had were fabulous! All different, very fresh ingredients, and wonderfully thought out in terms of melding flavors and textures. The chef during our visit was just so talented.
I took advantage of the on-site spa and booked two massages which just made my relaxing complete. The facility is very clean and very calming, although the pace at the Inn is hardly frantic.
We found the staff to be very thoughtful and pleasant. Unlike another review, we found no fault with the staff. All were doing a good job, seemingly without effort, and very friendly and gracious. It would be lovely to have a history of the buildings on hand since parts of the building are so very old.
We are inclined to return given the quality of the whole experience.
