My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine's weekend. With traffic and the snow, it was a long and frustrating ride out of the city. We arrived very late on Friday evening but were nevertheless greeted at the entryway by the owner, Doc, who showed us straight up to our room. There's something to be said about not having to fuss with checking in after a long day.
We stayed in the Terrill Room. Just a heads-up, it has been redecorated since the pictures were taken for the web site and it is now very purple. Being a young couple, we enjoyed and embraced the makeover but I imagine the new look might not be for everyone.
The tub and fire place were relished, but the bed was the best part about the room. It was the most comfortable bed I think I've ever slept in.
At Prospect Hill, it was all in the details. They brought us breakfast in bed for no additional cost, placed cookies in the room during turn down, and when a Doc noticed we were using the fire place, he prepared extra wood and newspaper for burning. It was the perfect getaway from the busy city at an excellent price, and we're already planning our return.
