“Cosy four poster and fireplace”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I was making my way towards Boston and I stopped here for the night only. I think I was the last guest of the season.

An historic home turned boutique hotel, it sits above town on it's own land and commands the area. I imagine lots of weddings are held here as the building and grounds are gorgeous.

The room was sumptuously decorated and the four poster bed was a dream.

The bathroom had a jacuzzi with shower overhead.

It was a lovely inn.

my husband and I just hosted our small wedding at the inn this past weekend, and I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. Jill, the innkeeper, made it all possible. She is welcoming, resourceful, thoughtful, so sweet, and was willing to do whatever it took to make sure our wedding went well, and that our guests had a great stay. I can say the same for the entire staff at the inn. Chef Liz made truly delicious meals for us - from our wedding dinner, to brunch the next day, to packed lunches to bring out to the reservoir. The servers, bartenders, and even the maintenance guy all made us feel so welcome and took great care of us. The grounds are beautiful - some parts are aging but it is well maintained and I love the character. The weather cooperated so we were able to have our ceremony outside in the gardens. We can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: The loft rooms aren't decorated quite as nicely as the other rooms. they are still comfortable a...

Upon arrival we were greeted by Jill Byarm the General Manager. She had delicious home made cookies for snacks as we checked in to get our key. She took us on a tour of the Inn. We had a massage scheduled for later that afternoon and Lynette was amazing. She set the tone for the start of our overnight stay in Room 6 with the Grand Balcony. The grounds are breathtaking with the beautiful landscaping and array of flowers. A full Breakfast the following morning (included in the price) was delicious. Everyone was extremely friendly and we felt right at home upon arrival. Jill was always making sure that we had everything we needed for our comfort. It was my 2nd time at the Inn and I look forward to returning again.

My husband and I recently came here on a deal w/ living social. I didn't know much about the area or the hotel when purchasing it, it was a great deal. We desperately needed some time away as a couple away from our young children. ;) we were pleasantly surprised. We were in the old part of the mansion in a very sunny room. There was a fireplace and TV. We did not have a spa tub in our room but the tub was large and old fashioned so relaxing was great w/out feeling cramped like tubs in most hotels today. The staff was great, friendly and courteous. The country breakfast included w/ our stay was fantastic. We will certainly be coming back again in the future.

This is a beautiful setting and the staff is wonderful. The building needs updating. It's showing it's age. The couches are saggy and the furniture is showing wear. Tvs in the rooms would be nice. The basement was chilly without the fireplace, so of course we used it. Basement needs to be cleaned too. Keurig coffee always available was a nice touch.

We stayed in the main part of the inn this time, rather than the downstairs, exterior rooms. The plumbing worked very well; lots of hot water for the spa tub. I was in the slightly newer section while my sister was in the original mansion. My sister's room had no television and a standard tub/shower combination, so if you have a tub and television preference, review the amenities carefully. The restaurant was not open on this Sunday evening as they'd hosted a Mother's Day brunch instead, so we were unable to sample the recent chef's menu. We were last here two years ago and it was really magnificent then. The breakfasts remain cooked-to-order and I'm willing to bet the orange juice was fresh-squeezed. I really like the Inn. The staff is very pleasant and the new manager is just as sweet as the one we met two years ago.

Room Tip: There are no elevators. The downstairs rooms with exterior entries would still be difficult to navig...

We are still here at the inn. It is cold, however, Jill the manager, jan at the bar, Pam, the restaurant staff are keeping us warm, comfortable and extremely well fed. The serenity spa provides the best facial and massage ever. Our room, 111, is not cold. It is quite toasty with the fireplace. We are so relaxed that we are coming back in august. The inn is beautiful and we are looking forward to coming back in august and walking the grounds and enjoying the town
