My fiancé and I just got back from a weekend at the Inn, it was the perfect weekend getaway. We live in NYC and really needed some time away from the buzz of the city, the constant noise, the smell and the concrete, the Glasbern Inn was exactly what we needed. The buildings are gorgeous and they fit into the countryside so well, they look like they belong there. We loved the fact they had farm animals around (a short walk, just far enough so that you can’t hear them or small them at night), and the flowers were really well done, the grounds are really beautiful. Our room was perfect; we stayed in the Gatehouse, room 48, complete with fireplace and a spiral staircase to a loft with a skylight and big whirlpool tub. We started a fire and crawled into bed to watch it while we fell asleep. The food was also really good. The Inn is all about keeping it local and they really try and use local ingredients (even from their own farm) wherever possible. We really appreciated this as we feel it’s really helping the environment, supports local farmers and provides the freshest and best tasting ingredients. My fiancé is a chef who has trained with and currently works for a 3 Michelin chef from Europe, and we both thought the food at the Inn was really good. The only draw backs were that dinner was over priced, and the atmosphere in the dinning room was stuffy, it was so quiet we almost had to whisper, but again, the food was great. Breakfast, which is included in the room price, was excellent. The staff were nice and super helpful so no complaints there. We plan on coming back for an anniversary in the future, it’s really a special place, it’s the perfect getaway, it wasn’t cheap but for us it was worth every penny we spent.
Another note, if you are looking for something laid back to do during the day, take a drive to some of the vineyards near by and do some wine tasting, not all the wines are that great but the drive to the vineyards is worth it, it’s really beautiful countryside.
