Our children booked us in to The Drake Devonshire as a combined birthday gift. We had stayed here once before about 12 years ago when is was The Devonshire. What an amazing weekend. Great room terrific food and amazing staff made the weekend very memorable for both of us. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone.
