“Great Anniversary Get Away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

This was our second time this year to visit the Red Rocker. Our first visit was Valentine's Day and this trip we celebrated our 21st Anniversary. We had great experiences both visits. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean.
Of course, no review about the Red Rocker would be complete without mentioning THE FOOD! We ate dinner in the dining room both visits. SO GOOD and actually very affordable. (Don't forget to save room for dessert...or at least get one to put in the fridge for later!) Breakfast was just as wonderful as dinner with so many choices and always something different to look forward to.
The Red Rocker is truly like being a guest in someone's home. Doug and Jenny always made us feel at home. And when they aren't able to at the Inn, their staff is always courteous.
We will be back soon for another visit.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Red Rocker Inn, while visiting relatives in the area. It is close enough to town to walk there, and the inn itself is homey and cozy. The owners are gracious and friendly. It just feels like you're a guest in someone's home. The breakfast is absolutely first rate! My favorite was the apple oatmeal pancakes with blackberry syrup! Yum!!

Our second day was my wife's birthday (12/24) so she got breakfast in bed, natch. But we chose this location for the FOOD! The evening meal is exquisite, and the dining room is always busy because the entrees are special. We were introduced to The Red Rocker Inn by close friends who have never stayed there! Even the locals pile in for Brunch. Don't forget to pick up a jar of apple butter!! (Better hide it when you get home,)

Doug and Jenny and Bonnie are wonderful and gracious hosts. Coffee, hot tea, and superb macaroons in the evening capped each day of our visit. We enjoyed conversation with really nice folks there as well.

Room Tip: We were fortunate to have the room above the kitchen - no noise; just the most delightful subtle aro...

Everything about the Red Rocker Inn smacks of hospitality. It is clear that Jenny and Doug have a passion for providing an excellent, memorable experience for their guests. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The room, which had every bit of character you would expect at the finest bed and breakfasts, was both well appointed and sparkling clean. Given the quality of both the accommodations and the overall experience, we consider the Red Rocker Inn to be not only an excellent stay, but an excellent value. The rooms are very reasonably priced.

Our second visit. This time we stayed in Elizabeth's Attic, our first choice. We expected a little challenge with my wife's knees, and we met it. The room is on the "3rd floor" but that's only 2 steps higher than the 2d floor. There are only about 5 to a landing, then a right turn to another 5 stairs, then a turn and 5 more, so there is plenty of opportunity to rest enroute. Outside Temp got to 20 degrees, but with the gas fireplace we were cozy. Yes, the heating system seems to circulate cool air, but the fireplace more than covers it and the owners furnish a portable heater for the oversize shower and separate elevated tub. King size bed comfy chairs and even a Christmas Tree in our room.
The thing we appreciate most about Red Rocker is being welcomed into their extended family at every visit.

This was our second annual visit to the Inn for Thanksgiving. They have three sittings and we chose the earliest 1:00 so our food would settle since the meal has several courses and so delicious. Breakfast is also delicious and there is something to please everyone with a lot of variety. Our room was on the second floor and a bit chilly, but we had warm clothes and left our door open because it was private and it was warmer that way. It was very cold outside teens and 20's overnight and 30 - 40 during the day. The Inn is over 100 years old and to be expected. The first floor rooms can be a bit too warm with the kitchen nearby for us. This is definitely not a negative and when making reservations you can state a preference. They have a very nice online site where you can view the various rooms. The Innkeepers have become like family and are very warm and welcoming. For Thanksgiving you should make your reservations early and make sure you state you want to have dinner since they serve to the public besides the guests. We made our plans in the summer to make sure we got the room and dinner time we wanted. A wonderful place to visit anytime of the year.
