My fiance and I have now stayed at the Golden Eagle Inn twice, once in the Oralee Room, and once in the Mary Espy room, while in Bedford to visit family. We had a wonderful experience during both visits. The hosts, Mary Jane and Tom, were so welcoming and friendly. The first stay was during a post-Thanksgiving trip, the first weekend in December. The Inn was freshly decorated for the holidays with live greenery and a grand Christmas tree greeted us at the entrance. We were shown to our room (the Oralee), where the fireplace had already been lighted for us, and our accommodations felt fresh, clean, and very cozy. After settling in, we had dinner in the dining room, which was charming with it's period decor, high ceilings, and lighted fireplaces. It was difficult to choose from such an enticing menu. I settled on a Harvest Salad with Pan roasted chicken that absolutely melted in your mouth. Tom suggested a wine to accompany our meal that was a perfect pairing. The chefs came out to our table to visit and were happy to talk about the menu. You can tell for the staff of the Golden Eagle, their work is truly a passion for them. We didnt wake early enough for the complimentary breakfast the next morning, but were delighted to order from their brunch menu. I recall delicious hash, bacon, eggs, and toast. After visiting with family for a while even returned for a late lunch before departing. The Chef burger is out of this world. Needless to say, when we returned for a New Years visit, we again chose to stay at the Golden Eagle. Their New Years Eve menu offered a great variety of food and our local family members joined us for the meal, and some stayed for the live entertainment. We were met with the same charm, warmth, cleanliness, and service during our New Years visit. We even ended up staying an additional night due to an ice storm and they were happy to accommodate us. We are looking forward to future trips to Bedford and the Golden Eagle Inn.
