I hope we're not spoiled for any future B&B visit elsewhere. This was our first, and the Inn at Brome Howard did not disappoint. Tara, the innkeeper, was friendly and accommodating at every step. This was a spur of the moment getaway for my husband and me, calling the morning of our anticipated arrival to book the Calvert room. We arrived around 9 pm, only to find a welcome hostess, cookies and chocolates waiting, and a lovely room that was quite comfy. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, and Tara gave several ideas of activities and restaurant suggestions.
We stayed for two nights, and it was a perfect little getaway. The grounds are spacious and pretty... we spent quite a while on our second evening sitting on the front porch, enjoying the evening weather, and watching the deer play in the field. The whole environment was peaceful and relaxing.
Our only (small) complaint was the lack of hooks in the bathroom for towels - nowhere near the sink for the hand towel, nor near the shower while bathing. But seriously? That's a small price to pay... everything else was wonderful, and we hope to return one day.
