My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice place to getaway last minute and found this wonderful little bed and breakfast. Luckily, a room was available mid-week when we needed it, and we made the 2.5 hr drive from Manhattan.
We felt welcome as soon as we got there. The first evening, we asked for a restaurant recommendation--the recommendation was great and Ashley even made the reservation for us. The second evening, we were inclined to stay in and sit in the gardens and have dinner by ourselves--Ashley again made the perfect recommendation (to Trader Joe's!) and we were able to sit by candlelight on the patio with the fountain and watch the sunset.
The breakfasts were superb, and Ashley knew exactly when we'd like privacy and when we were curious to learn more about her property and our hostess.
I would stay here again in a second! It was absolutely the best and most beautifully appointed bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. Can't wait to return and learn how to play cribbage! Wish I could afford to return once per month!
