My husband and I just returned from our 25th wedding anniversary trip. We chose The Inn at Half-Mile Farm because of their informative website. It was very helpful to see what the rooms looked like before booking our vacation and when we arrived we were not disappointed.
We found our room (14-High Falls) had a gas fireplace, a roomy bathroom with a large glass shower and a tub for two with jets and a private balcony. We enjoyed walking around the grounds; the gardens were beautiful! We especially enjoyed visiting with the other guests while having delicious wine and hors d'oeurves each evening before heading to dinner.
Though the family running the inn had company of their own at home that week, they seemed to serve us well during our stay. They did their best to make dinner reservations for us upon our request. The maid service was excellent. I do agree with one review regarding the condition of the Kayaks. We notice that they were weather worn and kind of dirty. The small pool was in great shape though.
Last, but not least, the breakfasts at this inn were fabulous! I loved them all, but my favorite was the walnut pancakes we had the first morning. We skipped lunch and feasted again at dinner each day we were there. We'll definitely be back to visit again!
