For years, we have been looking for the perfect accommodation in central New York State where we can bring our now (nearly) 14-year old Cocker Spaniel, and we have definitely found it! Even though it was still late Winter (March 6) when we arrived - not the most beautiful time of year for this part of the world - we were immediately impressed as we approached the property. We generally shy away from Bed and Breakfasts, but this one is in a class by itself. The Inn is enchantingly situated, set well back from two county roads with acres and acres of farm land all around. The owner, John, met us at the door, gave us a tour of the Inn, its rooms and suites, all of which are inviting, each with its own, distinctive charm. We stayed in the Morgan Suite, which is arguably the most elegant and the only one with its own (albeit small) TV. If you don't mind navigating rather steep stairs, I would also recommend considering the Victorian Suite, which has the largest of the inn's whirlpool tubs. John was a consistently gracious host, managing to be ever attentive, but never intrusive. He is an excellent conversationalist with a rich and varied personal history and a superb chef. Plan on devoting a solid two hours to breakfast, an experience you will never forget! Dinner, too, was outstanding. I have two small suggestions for how this first-class establishment could be made even better. The bed was quite comfortable, but the down pillows could be updated, and, although our suite had a deep tub, we did not use it, partly because of the separate whirlpool tub, but also because no bath gel was provided. Then again, maybe the lack of bath gel was intentional to discourage its use in the whirlpool. Either way, these are small issues, and we can not wait to return!
