We stayed 4 days at Hillwinds and it was terrific. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the Riverview Bldg (rm 15) which overlooked a river (it had picnic tables and grills by the brook too). Our room was a good size with a comfortable King bed, a fridge, microwave, good wireless coverage, and free calls anywhere in North America! It was also very clean, had a nice shower and great towels. There was a nice swimming pool and a Badmitton court. We only had 2 breakfasts since they didn't serve until 8-ish, but on Sunday they had real NY style Bagels! We went again on Monday and the bagels were more like hamburger buns but as my wife said...give them a Break! Oh, the owners were wonderful people too...very friendly.
I only have 2 suggestions. One is that the desk had no light over or next to it so it was very difficult to read and prepare for the next day's hikes. And the other is that the parking for the Riverside Bldg was kind of a free-for-all. There would have been plenty of room if people had parked in a reasonable fashion and not like they were the only people staying at the Motel.
