Anywhere would be tranquil compared to New York where we had just spent four days but a couple of hours on the back porch watching fireflies in the gloaming was a true antidote.
Chris and Ed were welcoming and informative. Breakfast was served at the table in tasting menu fashion - a mystery until served together with Chris's detailed description . All "historic" as Michael Winner would say.
Restaurants nearby are OK but you won't find anything beyond burgers, pizza , the occasional steak and ubiquitous crab cakes.
Treat yourself to a stay at Laurel Lodge. We would return.
