We live in the South and take a trip every winter to some place that we can usually count on there being snow. We made it to Boston just before Logan was closed. After spending one night in Boston, we drove up to Grafton. Luckily the roads are kept clear better than they are at home. It's about a three-hour drive from Boston to Grafton, and it was a pleasant drive, complete with audio book and lots of beautiful scenery. When we got to the Inn, we were tired and ready to relax. There are not vs in the room, and there was nothing to do in Grafton at this time of year except one cheese store behind the Inn. Our room was large with a king bed and a nice size bathroom. The rooms are a little dated, but we were comfortable, and wi-fi was available. The view was great, and the ground floor had two fireplaces to sit in front of whenever you want. The first night we are in the nice restaurant in the Inn, and the food was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent, and dinner the second night was kindly brought to our room since there were no tables available in the pub attached to the Inn. Live music was there making it a popular place. Our food from the pub was excellent as well. The staff was very gracious, especially our server, Lisa, who took care of us three times and works very hard. We may go back in the fall at some point. We took a trip to Chester on the same day we went to Walpole from the Inn.
