This was my first stay at Richmont Inn. It was initially built about 20 years ago, and I remember hearing about it over the years so glad I was able to finally visit (I live about an hour away). I stayed in the main building and my room had a beautiful view of the mountains. The room was very nice and appeared to be very clean. The owner,Jim, was especially nice and gracious. I would say the grounds need some attention and tidying up a bit. None of the water features appeared to be working and there was damage to one of the buildings on the property from a lightening strike and was waiting repair work and the main building was having some work done as well. The breakfast was a little disappointing - the stuffed french toast...way too sweet for me, but they did offer yogurt and cereal. I've stayed in many B&B's over the years and have had some fantastic breakfasts..so that's what I'm comparing it with. All in all it was fine, but the owners just need to do some TLC around the grounds.
