Enjoyed my stay at the Cortina Inn! Especially as they are pet friendly so my cocker spaniel Joey loved coming along with us on our road trip to Vermont. They charge $25 extra for our dog. The lobby has a seating area that surrounds a central wood burning fireplace and is really nice to sit around, read a book, play a game or drink wine. I love the sight and warmth of a fireplace at night and in the morning. It just gives me a really warm feeling instead. Throughout the lobby they had nice seating areas with comfortable couches. My only complaint would be that there are TOO many patterns on the carpet and furniture, overwhelming your eyes. They should have more solid, neutral fabrics in the room to offset the other patterns.
My room had a comfortable king bed and had a back door that opened out onto the back "garden" which consisted of a small pond, bridge, benches and a gazebo on the hill. There was also a shuffle ball court? which I am not familiar with so I didnt use it. My dog joey enjoyed his morning walk out there. Make sure to lock this back door as it appeared someone had tried to break into it earlier. I didnt have any problems but did notice it when returning.
The indoor pool is nice and does have a deep end of 10 feet. It was great for swimming laps and a comfortable temperature. The hot tub was working and not too hot but I preferred the pool. Down the stairs were the locker rooms with saunas (closed) and gym which seemed dated but in working condition.
Breakfast in the morning was varied and satisfying. Not gourmet or anything but filled me up. They had french toast, eggs, sausage, corned beef hash, potatoes, hot and cold cereal varities, bagels, toast, fruit, juice, hot chocolate, coffee and make-your-own waffles. I enjoyed the waffle and hot chocolate best. We had no problems with the food running out and the manager constantly checked to make sure it was not empty.
As I am from out of town, I am not familiar with the history of the inn. But from what I experienced, I would definitely return and stay again.
