My husband and I have visited The Inn at Weston every year since we married in 2005. We've stayed there in both fall and winter and always had a wonderful time. Bob and Linda, the owners, do everything in their power to assure each guest an enjoyable stay. When we spent Thanksgiving there, they arranged a sleigh ride and Linda even treated us to a thermos of hot chocolate to take with us that cold and snowy day.
The rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean, and beautifully decorated in a cozy, country style. Parkhurst is our favorite, with Tuttle a close second. We especially enjoy the gas fireplace, feather bed mattress topper, and Jacuzzi. On the mantel, one of the orchids Bob grew in his greenhouse next door is a special touch.
Downstairs, the library walls are lined with an extensive collection of books and CDs which may be borrowed for one's room. A large table holding a silver urn is ready for guests to gather around to enjoy a lovely afternoon tea. The hallway leading to the dining room features Bob's framed photography which is for sale. At the grand piano sits George, the friendly and talented pianist, who travels from table to table taking requests for diners' favorite "tunes." The restaurant serves gourmet food which tastes as good as it looks. (The cranberry cornbread is platonic!) Bob, a knowledgable oenophile, is always happy to recommend the perfect wine pairing. Several of his suggestions have become favorites of ours.
Even though dinner is "an event," breakfast is my favorite meal at The Inn. It begins with Linda's delicious granola, fruit, and coffee cake or muffins. Next comes a choice of either an interesting egg dish or something sweet like French toast or pancakes. My husband and I can never choose, so we order one of each and share.
Back in the room, we decide whether we're going to settle down in the two overstuffed chairs by the fire, put our feet up and read...or maybe stroll across the street to explore the Vermont Country Store...or walk down the road a bit to browse through the Christmas Shop and the Cheese Emporium, where the horseradish cheddar is not to be missed. If we're there in the fall, the foliage beckons, and depending on the date one visits, there may be a quality antique show or perhaps a high-end crafts show just down the street. Bob and Linda are happy to make suggestions for other outings and offer brochures for attractions in nearby towns. The Maple Syrup Musuum is one of our favorites. We've also enjoyed visiting Woodstock's many quaint shops and taking the Robert Frost trail.
We have favorite hotels in Manhattan, Paris, London, Switzerland, and Venice, but when we have just a few days for a quick getaway, The Inn at Weston never disappoints. We are always sad to leave so we cushion the blow by making reservations for next year. Then all year we look forward to our next magical visit and more "moonlight in Vermont."
