We arrived in the seasons first real snowstorm ... "The Inn" itself has incredible curb appeal ... you expect to see Robert Frost or Norman Rockwell as you enter, but it is even better ... you meet Sarah and Erik ... who attend to your every need in their Federal period built and furnished inn which is meticulously maintained ......

Thank you for your review. By the sounds of it you enjoyed your stay with us and we are so glad! You captured us quite precisely. When we have fewer guests we do usually only offer one seating, but during the busier months we offer two (8:15, 9:30). Thank you again for your review. Best Wishes Sarah and Erik
