The Burress House Inn is a hidden gem. The setting is serene and beautiful, the furnishings and interior decorations are beyond compare and the hosts are helpful yet unintrusive.
This is NOT a bed & breakfast - it is an inn, where you are left to your own devices. The nine luxury suites afford you the utmost in privacy and allow you to rest, relax & pamper yourself. Bagels, butter, cream cheese & bottled water are supplied in each suite, along with a gourmet coffeemaker, toaster & microwave. The linens are first class and the bed was extremely comfortable. Our suite had a gas fireplace in the well-equipped living room area & another in the bedroom - each with it's own exquisite antique hearth.
By design, the innkeeper is not present at the inn office 24/7; rather, she's available via cell phone, even when she's off-site or after hours. My wife & I found her to be pleasant, engaging and full of information about the area (restaurants, especially).
I had the pleasure of meeting the owner as we were leaving and he shared his vision of a quiet waterside inn offering luxurious accommodations without incessantly fawning over the guests. This place absolutely achieves his goal.
If you want a place that's overrun with staff, anticpating your every want & need...this is NOT the place for you! The Burress House Inn offers a beautiful venue, deluxe in design and furnishings, replete with privacy and serenity - what one makes of it is left entirely up to the individual.
I almost hesitated to write this review and reveal our secret, hidden gem, but to try to keep it to ourselves would selfish and unfair. A place this wonderful deserves to be enjoyed by all!
