We just stayed at the Hillbrook Inn in Charles Town over the weekend and we had an "OK" time. We stayed in the Main house in the Locke's Nest.
I'll start with the Cons first :
Walls were PAPER thin in the room. We could hear everything going on downstairs as if we were in the conversation with the couple beneath us. At one point the gentlemen sneezed and I said, "God Bless you." We didn't feel as if we had a very private room at all.
Stink bugs/bugs were in the room, alive and dead ones. I left a note for the cleaning staff because the fan/light in the shower was filled with dead bugs. Didn't make for a romantic atmosphere.
The Daybed in the room was scary. Sat on it for 2 seconds and felt like it was going to fall apart. Did not use the rest of our stay.
Be forewarned that if you pick the Locke's Nest it is quite a steep hike up the steps to get to the room. We actually had no problems but I can see where other couples might.
We only had breakfast at the Inn and are kicking ourselves for not trying the dinner. Every morning the food was fantastic and fresh. We really enjoyed it!
The Grounds around the Inn are also very nice. We laid in the hammock and played the giant game of chess. The streams and ponds around it were relaxing and beautiful.
Inside of the Inn was very beautiful but watch your head. Some low ceiling areas!
The Bed in the room was amazing and once we got over the noise we slept like babies. GREAT comfortable Queen. :)
We would probably stay again, however in a different room/location. (Farmhouse etc..)
