Through AAA we purchased a package which involved a two night stay at The Colonial Inn at Historic Smithville; a Wine Tasting; and a Sample Soap. This package was well worth the money and our room at The Colonial Inn was more like a mini suite. It was in the Barn section and consisted of a living area with dining table; a mini refrigerator and microwave, the bathroom, and bedroom. It was furnished in a colonial style including a sampler from more than 100 years ago. Everything was fine and the people working there were extremely nice. Only a few complaints - having the sink separate from the toilet and shower was a little inconvenient. The air condition was noisy at times although I have noticed this problem at more expensive places. As someone else already commented: the continental breakfast (which you ordered the day before) consisted of orange juice; a hot beverage of your choice; a croissant or large muffin; and yogurt. This was all nicely served in a picnic basket which we picked up in the main office. I would have preferred something a little more special but I realize there are bakeries and places to eat on site. In addition the yogurt would have been healthier if it were Greek Yogurt which has a lot more protein and fewer carbs than the yogurt served. Consequently I only ate half of it. The room or mini suite was clean, well furnished and equipped although a larger bar of soap would be nice. Anyway, I would recommend this as a very good place to stay for a nice long weekend. There are plenty of interesting shops in Smithville although why no regular children's clothing shop, I don't understand.
Our dinner at The Smithville Inn was excellent and the wine mark-up was very fair.
