We just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Inn at Half Mile Farm. We met some dear friends to catch up and rejuvenate with an adults only weekend away from our kids. Since there are no kids allowed under the age of 12, it was great to be completely away from children all weekend. The Inn was such a great place to rest relax and renew. The decor was rustic yet tasteful and looked like it was right out of the pages of southern living magazine. Our room was beautiful and the bed was wonderful, so comfortable! 4 luxurious pillows were provided- 2 firmer and 2 softer to meet different tastes. What a great night's sleep. After checking in, Carol took us on a tour and showed us to our rooms. The room my husband and I had reserved was an ADA room (handicapped accessible). This meant it had one of those walk in tubs/shower that I see advertised on tv. Carol offered us a different room if we wanted, but we had chosen that room during the online reservations since we wanted to be next door to our friends so we were fine with it. It was nice to be offered something else though.
The gourmet breakfast each day was unique and delicious. My favorite was the morning we had an egg soufflé followed by a blueberry bread pudding with link sausage. Needless to say we didn't need to eat again before the hor d'oeuvers that evening, (well except for cookies that are always in the lobby). All the food was yummy! Complimentary drinks and snacks were available all day as well as homemade fresh cookies.
It rained almost the whole time we were there so we didn't have a chance to fish or canoe or swim, but there were plenty of places for us to relax and chat. There are gorgeous pastoral views out every window and porch and the landscaping is amazing.
Carol went out of her way to make sure our needs were met and that our stay was perfect! We will definitely return. My only complaint....they put something addictive in those snickerdoodles because I ate way too many of them.
