The first time you set eyes on this stately home will stay etched in your mind forever, we were in awe as we drove toward it up the hill. We were met by Ruth who explained her history with the mansion and then gave us a tour which led to our beautiful suite. I have to say I have never seen such a beautiful room and bathroom, so elegantly refurbished to reflect the period of the house but still having beautiful modern amenities. Our view of Moosehead Lake made the position even more perfect, our room was huge and so was the elegantly appointed bathroom. Ruth arranged for us to join a personal Moose Safari with Northwood's Outfitters which was a complete success - we saw 3 Moose in the wild! A massive highlight for a couple of Australians, there is nothing that compares to seeing a creature in its natural habitat, especially one as majestic as the Moose.
Breakfast was fantastic, plentiful, delicious, perfectly cooked and presented (Dan is the chef) The breakfast room has beautiful views of the garden and there is a lovely veranda to take in views of the lake.
Everything about Blair Hill is amazing, everyone should be lucky enough to visit this timeless, wonderful place, made even more enjoyable because of our delightful host Ruth (we didn't meet Dan, he was too busy cooking!)
Thanks Ruth, we have a lifetime memory and you are part of it!
