I stayed at Twin Gables over the Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful, relaxing time. When we arrived the fireplace was burning in the living room area. We were welcomed in, shown around and given the key that gave us access to our room as well as the front door for us to come and go as we pleased.
The room itself was adorable, furnished with well kept antiques and delicate floral wallpaper. There were, to my delight, no television sets or telephones. The room also had some wonderful photographs by a local artist that were available for purchase at a very affordable price.
Our room used the shared bathrooms that were right across the hall. The bathrooms were very clean, there were 2 full bathrooms and a toilet so we were usually able to go right in. Eco friendly shampoo, conditioner and soaps were provided as well as clean towels and a hair dryer.
It was very quiet, peaceful and cozy. The place somehow made me feel like a little girl staying at my grandmother's house. The owners and employees were available yet unimposing. We met some like minded guests that we really clicked with and had interesting conversations during breakfast and once in the evening by the fire.
The continental breakfast also exceeded my expectations. They had fresh fruit, including berries (my favorite), juice, yogurt, granola, muffins, coffee and tea. Being a tea lover, I was especially pleased with the tea selection (from a local tea shop), choice of soy milk or creams, and even honey sticks!
The location was perfect, right on the main street alongside many nice shops, art galleries and restaurants. I purchased many lovely hand crafted gifts while there. I found the locals to be friendly and helpful. Some strangers even greeted us like neighbors when we were walking around town.
My travel buddy could only stay one night but I stayed on for another two and even extended my own stay by one night.
I look forward to many happy returns! Thank you Twin Gables and Woodstock!
