The very first sighting of the Mimslyn Inn was simply awesome. We had just finished a ride through the George Washington National Forest, and there we are, at the end of the winding roads, back to civilization, staring at this elegant edifice on top of a green hill, peacefully overlooking the small town below.
Being mid-September, I was wearing T-shirts and shorts, and I did feel a bit under dressed when I strode into the lobby. but the Welcome greeting was very warm and comfortable. The lady at the reception was genuinely interested in us having a good time. Overall staff population seemed young, with the exception of the restaurant usher. Though everyone is well mannered.
The restaurant offered lunch buffet which had a decent variety and, rather inconsistent taste. The chicken was excellent in general, but while one set of Brussels sprouts was delicious (almost the best I have had), another set was salty beyond reasoning.
