In just a couple of months the new owners, Scott and Roy, have turned this beautifully renovated inn into a rare treasure. The sweet weighty scent of lilacs in bloom welcomed us as we approached the house and, later, as we roamed the property, but this was only the beginning of a most welcoming stay at Pineapple Hill. Scott greeted us at the door and told us everything we wanted to know about their 1700s. If you enjoy old building remnants, there are several old stone foundations and a spring house. The pool, which the owners are planning to update for next year, was built inside the walls of the old barn. Simply wonderful! The rooms are impeccably clean and beautiful. Our room was in the newest section of the house, but still had the charm of staying at an historic inn. Each morning we were awakened by the mouthwatering aroma of a hearty breakfast being prepared, which can be enjoyed in the attractive dining room or on the deck. The deck is a wonderfully planned new addition. It's a pleasant place to relax alone or mingle with others, including Roy and Scott who seem to have as much fun as their guests. My husband and I live only 45 minutes from Pineapple Hill but plan to return for a relaxing weekend.
