“Something special this way comes”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

My husband and I live in Canada, and often travel to shop in Erie Pennsylvania. In mid November we decided to treat ourselves to a two night stay at Great Tree Inn, as it wasn't too far away from Erie - but better yet because of the spectacular website that had drawn us in (result of stumbling across it rather than searching). Simply, we HAD to stay there! Wow! We were greeted warmly by Sam , and shown around the inn. Loved it all, and it was easy to get lost in the imaginings of the inn's history and the people , farmers, owners, and guests who had come and gone over the years of it's life. Our room, the Seventh heaven was just as the photographs had shown, we were not disappointed in any way. Breakfast was fab, hot coffee, juice classic bacon eggs, toast -- and Kie, our server, the ever cheerful gal, who is just as much a part of the whole Great Tree Inn experience as anyone or anything else. Our dinner served on the second night's stay was delicious, never had anything quite like it. Tasty. Wine flowing. Ambience. Great conversations with other guests, and later with Sam and Kie who had stories to share. It was an amazing. relaxing weekend. We were hooked, by the people, the inn and the little quirks that made this renovated farmhouse so appealing. After checking out we were able to chat with Louis who was letting the horses out to pasture. He's a giant of a man, an easy conversationalist, with a story telling gift. We left wanting more. On New Year's Eve we ventured back, stayed in the Old Country folk room - champangne and strawberries brought to our room just after checking in. It only got better after that, Sometimes, you stumble across a magical place, where everything is just right, where a beautiful black locust tree blocks a large window pane, and the world seems just right. Great Tree Inn was "all that" for us. Sam, Louis, and Kie, we wish you all the very best.

What a great weekend at Great Tree Inn. A very warm welcome not only by the owner but the home is very welcoming and charming, too. We were very pleased by the condition and cleanliness of the whole house (I'm sure it's tought to keep up with a nearly 200-year-old house!) We stayed in the 7th Heaven room. Nice, roomy, and comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding! My husband is an ex-chef and he can be quite particular about food taste/quality, and he was impressed. We will definitely be back and probably with our horses next time! I highly recommend this place to everyone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our most recent visit to the Great Tree Inn & Stables - it was our third visit. We were greeted with a warm welcome and enjoyed wine by the fireplaces. We spent time on the grounds on Friday and Saturday with the horses and goats, and walked on the adjacent trails which connect to the property. The room was great and the food was amazing! We really enjoyed this destination-experience and we will be back.

Room Tip: We have stayed in 2 different rooms on our 3 visits and we got a personal tour of all the rooms - bo...

The Great Tree Inn & Stables is the perfect location for a romantic getaway, family reunion, sisters weekend, book club outing or any other reason you think of to escape day to day living! Sam does an outstanding job making you feel welcomed. Her cooking is beyond belief so your meals there are gourmet all the way! The house is like something out of a fairy tale. You will love your stay at Great Tree Inn, in fact my family is going to return this spring.

Room Tip: Beautiful and quaint.

Great Tree Inn offers everything you want in a B&B: top-notch service, a stupendous breakfast and a clean, comfortable room. The furnishings and interior design of the inn are wonderful, warm, eclectic and elegant without being stuffy. The room amenities are outstanding and very comfortable. Sam's oversight of the inn is attentive and detailed, but never overbearing; anything you need, she can help. Kie offered excellent tips about the area, along with great breakfast service and abundant coffee. The inn's grounds are gorgeous and relaxing. The perfect place to unwind and enjoy a relaxing stay. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Some rooms have larger rooms and smaller bathrooms or vice-versa; check the excellent website for ro...

My wife had a workshop at Chautauqua Institute, and I decide to come along for the week to explore the Lake Erie wine trail. I have traveled a lot for business, and I don't put up with bad service or accommodations. My wife found and booked the Great Tree Inn. This will now be my first choice when returning to the area!

We had a wonderful time. Service was great, breakfast was fabulous, and there was a variety. Many B&Bs I've stayed at only know one or two items for breakfast; here there seemed to be something new each day that was really good. Special needs for diet are eagerly accommodated.

The staff is very knowledgable about the local wine trail, and restaurants. They ask questions to make sure they understand you tastes before making a recommendation.

The rooms have maintained their charm while feeling modern. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are on the small side, and there is adequate room to do what is necessary. My wife does like to take a tub bath, and there was only a shower. If you want a big tub, make sure that you ask when you make a reservation.

I had trouble initially finding the Inn with my GPS because the Inn is actually in Mayville, NY, though they list the address as Chautauqua, NY, so as not to confuse people about it's proximity to Chautauqua Institute.

There is a reason The Great Tree Inn has so many Excellent Rated reviews. It deserves every one.

Your comments are greatly appreciated and thank you for recommending that those who would prefer a tub call us so that we can direct them to a room that meets this criteria. As for the GPS coordinates, we will update our info to include Mayville, Chautauqua, NY. Thank you, again! We hope to see you again, soon!
