We first found this beautiful, secluded inn over 20 years ago and have frequently returned for our wedding anniversary in April. When we learned that Mr. Sheehan, the original owner, had sold the inn, we wondered if it would still have the same charm when we visited this year. No worries! The new owners have made no radical changes. They've freshened paint and furnishings, added horses, chickens, dogs and cats to the grounds, and brought a feeling of renewed energy to this wonderful old place. And they have very wisely retained the Sheehans' chef and wait staff and their lovely pre-dinner ritual of gathering together for a glass of wine, followed by the ringing of the dinner bell and the offering of grace. I should mention, though, that at the present time dinner is only being served on Friday and Saturday nights. Dine there if you have the opportunity. The food remains, as always, outstanding.
