“A great discovery! One of the most relaxing, stress free vacations we've ever had. Can't wait to go back!”
We recently stayed at Winterclove and had a wonderful, much needed sress- free vacation.It's beautiful just pulling up to the front door, with the long porch, lined with the most comfortable rocking chairs and a carosel horse that the kids can sit on. We were greeted so warmly by Lenore at the front desk-she made everyone feel welcome, like family. The great room is so pretty, with wood floors,and warm carpets, with a large fireplace, piano, and plenty of places to sit and catch up with friends and relatives. Each bedroom is different, all with either antique or country furniture, with touches of home (and Grandma's home, too). A word of advice, if you have trouble with stairs, ask to be on a lower floor- the Inn is close to 200 years old, and does not have elevators.The mountains surrounding are breathtaking-there are many hiking trails besides streams, through the woods,rolling fields, or over a covered bridge. If you let your waiter or waitress know at breakfast, they'll pack you a good lunch for the trail. All the meals are included. I found the fresh air and walking made me work up an appetite, and the food is hearty and delicious.(I had an excellent tilapia in a light creamy sauce, with farm fresh vegetables, my husband had a tender pork roast that was the best he'd had in years). The smell of bacon cooking was my alarm clock-breakfast is delicious! The kids had fun in the pools. The outside pool was just redone, and was great. One day it rained, so the indoor pool is a lifesaver (some of the adults stayed on the porch playing board games-we haven't laughed so much in years) We never did get a chance to bowl, but the kids did.(there's a 6 lane bowling alley-just like when you were a kid) There's a nice tennis court, well maintained, and even a 9 hole golf course-all free. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant-they didn't even mind our bad jokes.All in all we had a wonderful time, just wish we could have stayed longer! We all can't wait to go back. Thanks winterclove!
