Nestled back a long gravel driveway off a road that my GPS wouldn't even acknowledge was the 1920 english tudor, Hillbrook Inn and its cottages. The main house felt like a page out of a storybook with its small doorways, winding steps and ivy covered facade.
Our room, the Bamford, located at the end of the main house hosted a queen bed, sitting area with fireplace, itsy bitsy bathroom and patio. The room painted in eggplant purple was filled with antiques, english tolietries, a Keruig coffee machine with samples of coffee / tea and a welcoming dessert plate of brownies and macaroons. The only downside to this room was a slight musty smell, I needed to get water for the Keruig machine from the bathroom (small water bottles would of been nice) and there was no TV. We were told that the cottages had TV's though...
We stayed for the 5 course, $65 a person dinner located in the Main House. We were given the choice of pork or beef. Other than that, dinner was a complete mystery but each entree was a pleasant surprise created by chef Christine who made her appearance at the end of the evening. Breakfast in the morning was another refreshing suprise.
With no morning TV, my husband and I set out to explore the grounds of the Hillbrook. Winding streams, a hammock, tree swing, aglae covered ponds and an epic size chessboard were discovered. All in less than pristine condition and some in need of repair.
All in all the Hillbrook Inn is a perfect retreat for individuals looking to escape from the concrete jungle to the country for some peace & quiet and alone time with your partner. What makes the Hillbrook great is not it's luxury or value priced accomodations or activites, but the friendly, down to earth staff.
