My husband and I stayed at the Poetry Inn right after the Christmas holidays. Our host for all 3 nights was "Bob," one of the most attentive, entertaining and wonderful innkeepers I've ever had the pleasure to meet. The first night we stayed in the Robert Frost room -- a sumptuous suite replete with an outdoor shower, hammock, heated bathroom floors, wood-burning fireplace, four-poster curtained bed, and an enormous outdoor deck. It was beautiful and roomy but I must say, I preferred the second room -- the Emily Dickinson room. It was a smaller version of the Frost room, but was much cozier and had a bit of a cozier lay-out. It also had an outdoor shower, but it was right behind the indoor one. So when one takes an indoor shower, the glass fogs up and it feels like a sauna. The bathroom floors were likewise heated and this room also had a wood-burning fireplace.
The Poetry Inn is a hidden gem. All breakfasts are included, as are all of the items in the mini-bar area. The first night, we tried several bottles of the Breggo Pinot noir (our friends were staying here as well, in the Walt Whitman room) and they were comped by Bob. He also brought us a cheese/cracker plate and entertained us with his witty repartee. I can't state more emphatically how wonderful Bob was!
We also enjoyed a private wine tour at Cliff Lede's amazing vineyard. That experience was lovely as well.
Overall, this place and its innkeeper may have provided us with one of the best little vacations we've ever had. We will most definitely be coming back!
