“Okay, but not what I had hoped for”
Reviewed 19 July 2007

I got to the Inn late (6:30) and they had left a key for me since I had called to tell them I'd be late. The key did not fit the room but it did fit the bathroom down the hall that I was supposed to use. It was a VERY hot and humid day and the tiny bathroom was like a sauna--no air circulation at all.

I called the number left with the key, and someone came right over. The room looked nice, but I decided I could not use a bathroom that was that hot. I am a bit surprised that they thought anyone could use a bathroom that had no air conditioning or air circulation. I asked for a different room and got a very nice room with an attached bathroom for only an additional $5.

Breakfast was not included but I ate at the restaurant and had a lovely breakfast with a very attentive waitress.

Perhaps there is more attention to the highly advertised/regarded restaurant than to the rooms/guests portion of the inn?

I stayed here in the summer of 2002 and loved it! While the accomodations are not luxurious by today's standards, it was like taking a step back in time to a simpler way of life. Contrary to the other reviewer who found the staff "uncaring", in my experience, they could not have been kinder and more accomodating. When I lost an earring outside on the patio at night, a waitress not only brought me a flashlight, but also took time to help me look for the earring. The setting of the inn (overlooking a gorgeous lake and mountains) is exquisite. The food at the inn's Austrian restaurant was fabulous. I would highly recommend it.. it would be wonderful anyway, but at the low, low price, it is an absolute steal!

don't get stuck here - either from bedsprings popping through the mattress or from their unprofessional, uncaring staff - besides poor room conditions (pointy bed springs, shower water that fluctuated from cold to hot to cold constantly, and noisy bathroom fan that made it sound like an airplane was in the room whenever the bathroom light was on) - the staff lied, changed it's refund policy capriciously and just gave us the royal shaft - it is the cheapest place to stay in the litchfield hills area - and now I know why
