Our daughter wanted a destination wedding, a beautiful venue, fine food and her family there to share her dream. She hunted and searched on the internet and after much debate and discussion, perusing various websites, she and her fiancee chose the Blair Hill Inn.
We traveled up there expecting a pretty inn, some pretty scenery and an enjoyable time at the wedding. When we arrived, we were stunned. The inn sat majestically on a hill overlooking Moosehead Lake. The view was breathtaking! Mountains, woods, and a huge lake spread out before us, encompassing the entire horizon.
We were greeted by our gracious innkeepers, Ruth & Dan and their 3 resident pooches, who put on their best and friendliest manners. They brought us in and showed us around the inn. The decor was prettier that what you see on their website. Each room was unique, well-thought-out, and decorated with attention to detail, comfort, and love. There were views of the lake from every window of the common rooms, and the sun shown through the windows casting a cheerful glow in every room.
Upstairs we were shown to our bedrooms. Each was different from the other. Each beautiful in it's own way. Everyone had a private bath with all the amenities and immaculate! We thought we had landed in something out of "Architectural Digest".
We spent a wonderful weekend being wined and dined by our wonderful hosts. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. It was a gourmet's delight. Prior to the wedding, Ruth and Dan had given our daughter contacts for flowers, a baker, and photographer. All exceptional in their own right.
The day of the wedding dawned bright & sunny and the grounds provided a venue that was outstanding for the ceremony. The gardens were in full bloom with black-eyed susans and coneflowers swaying in the breeze. The entire inn was open to our guests to celebrate this memorable occassion.
Everyone loved the idea of spending the entire weekend together. The families got to know each other, enjoying the cameraderie, serenading the bride and groom,and generally having a good time.
If you are looking for that very special place that will give you memories to last a lifetime, this is the place. For a marraige made in heaven, heaven has its front door here.
