“Absolutely outstanding!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and I walked into the Adair unannounced, no reservation, hoping to have dinner after plans fell through for our 15th wedding anniversary dinner.
Let me elaborate.
We had reservations at another area restaurant (I won't name names), but were so dissatisfied with the experience there that we opted to pay for our cocktails and leave in hopes of finding a special meal elsewhere.
I had read about the Adair online but had little knowledge about the property, apart from the fact that they have a well-respected restaurant in the area.
We arrived at the B&B, with it's well-manicured grounds and sheepishly entered, not being fans of the "drop-in".
It was approaching 7:00 pm and we feared that we may be out of luck at this point.
Much to our surprise, a lovely young lady greeted us and offered to ask the chef if he would be kind enough to accommodate a walk-in couple. The chef graciously acquiesced and we were seated in a cozy study at a small, candle-lit table. A perfect, romantic spot for our special occasion!
Between the young lady who greeted us, our charming server Rachael, and the considerable skills of Chef Orlo Coots, the evening was magical. Exactly what we had hoped for.
We live close by and therefore have never stayed here, but if our dinner experience is any indication of the way this property is run, the accommodations must be first rate.
I cannot say enough about the Adair and I encourage others to explore this gem.
Thank you to all of the staff for making our evening truly special!
We will definitely be back.

“What a Surprise!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Outstanding! Amen! Our experience was delightful from beginning to end. We enjoyed dinner on Saturday evening. After a long , warm day on the trail, we enjoyed an elegant, and creatively inspired meal. Served in the Library of an elegant and creatively inspired space. We were enchanted. This is a gem. Fine dining in the Great North Woods ,no jacket required.

“An excellent meal and a memorable experience”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We discovered the Adair Country Inn through Restaurant.com,
we approached with a little trepidation because there was only one car in the parking lot on the Mon. evening, but were immediately suaged by the warm greeting from the Innkeeper, The service and dinner were exquisite, and my husband declared that his filet was the best he had had in a very long time. My lamb was fresh and delicious.
As we ate, the restaurant slowly filled up, with all tables receiving careful attention from the two servers.
After dinner, the congenial Innkeeper gave us a tour of the Inn. Unfortunately, we could not go outside because it was raining, but there were beautiful gardens and trees with deer, moose, and other wildlife.
This Inn is a treat not to be missed, and if in the area again, we would certainly go back.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Since we were staying at the Adair Inn we were offered a dining credit at the restaurant and we chose to use that. The fine dining experience was a great one. the service was great and the food was excellent. As a couple who had not previously experienced fine dining, our waiter Morgan was willing to take the time and explain the nuances of the various items on the menu. The appetizers and main course were great. though the portions looked small they were amazingly filling. the 2 course meal itself was more than enough for us. Frankly the desert was an overkill since the portion was too big for us. all in all great value for money.

“Excellent meal and service”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

We were thrilled with our delicious meals. We had the two course meal and felt the quality of the food and extra touches provided value for the cost. We will definitely go back if we're in the area. The friendly inn keepers and service staff added to the experience.
