Visiting Olcott House is a destination of it's own. From arrival to departure it is a well curated visual feast of art objects, antiques, period clothing and fine decorative arts.
We were fortunate to stay two nights, each in a different suite, accompanied by fabulous breakfasts in the mornings. The yogurt parfait followed by eggs benedict were superb followed by morning two with fresh grapefruit, blueberry waffles and organic chicken and apple sausage. Our gracious host, David, made us feel at home immediately. Knowing that we enjoyed a small dog in our lives, he brought his adorable doxie puppy, Oliver, to our rooms for a few pets and laughs.
David easily and accurately directed us to local fine dining as well as cultural attractions.
We will be visiting Olcott House again soon to experience the other suites and more of David's hospitality.
