While planning a New England vacation for May 2013, I found "Jacob Hill Inn" listed in the "Select Registry" B&B catalog. The description and pictures were captivating. I telephoned for reservations and actually got to speak with the owner Eleonora who was so very helpful regarding our upcoming trip. Shortly before our trip Eleonora e-mailed to find out our arrival time. Once we did arrive I understood why she wanted to know. Immediately upon arriving we were met by Bill, Eleonora's husband. He gave us a tour of the buildings and grounds and showed us to our suite. He also delivered all of our luggage. All the while Bill was giving us the history of this beautiful estate while we enjoyed a glass of wine.
We had chosen the "Water Fire Grand Suite." This suite is huge, with a king size bed which provided the best sleep, a large hot tub, and a completely separate sun room...and best of all were the chocolate chip cookies that were refilled each day. In addition to the wonderful cookies, we were provided with a delicious cheese and cracker plate each day, as well as access to hot and cold beverages.
Breakfast was in a historic barn that has been beautifully renovated. The food was personally prepared by Bill & Eleonora and it was delicious...stuffed french toast, breakfast casseroles, homemade granola (the best I have ever had). You will not be disappointed with breakfast.
Bill & Eleonora were genuinely concerned with meeting all of our needs. They suggested restaurants and made reservations for us. They suggested places to visit and provided us with maps and directions. We left "Jacob Hill Inn" feeling like family. This is one B&B that we will visit again.
