You know how vacation planning can be such a chore and sometimes you just can't decide where to stay, well admittedly, out of seeming desperation, I booked one night at a B&B "just to get us through the area" as we journeyed by car to tour the wine vineyards of upper state New York.....
To our surprise, we stumbled upon one of our (now) favorite places to stay----ever! When I booked the room by phone, I was pleasantly and courteously spoken to by a woman with an English accent. Her words were so graceful and so inviting, that even though she only had one night available, I took it. Three days later, when we arrived, my husband and I were surprised to find such a luxurious B&B. We were just looking for quaint, simple, good bed, good breakfast.....what we got was OUTSTANDING for such a reasonable amount!
Cook's Mansion and the story of how this family very recently acquired and restored the B&B is quite amazing. Rather than me spoil the story, I will simply say, it was a gem of a place, but what made our one night stay, were the hosts of this B&B. You may never find such friendly and accommodating people in the whole of the United States!
My next blog will convey details of the furnishings, the quality of the food, the delightful conversations and why Cook Mansion B&B in Montaur Falls, NY is truly a 5 star retreat!!
