The Mill is charming and historic, and the bed was comfortable, but the true star of this B&B is the Inn Keeper Kevin, who is a wonderful host and a master chef. My wife and I were there for only one night, but we hope to be back again soon. Both the dinner and the breakfast Kevin prepared and served were among the very best we’ve ever had at any restaurant anywhere. The restaurant is fantastic, and the night we were there, it was open only to B&B guests. Because Kevin and his wife have no additional help in the kitchen or in the restaurant (at least on the night we were there), guest seatings for dinner were spaced in time so that Kevin and his wife could fully concentrate on cooking and serving the entrees for each table separately. It was like having a master chef focusing entirely and exclusively on just our meal. My wife had the Millstone Filet Mignon and I had the Filet Mignon & Lobster Tail, each cooked to perfection and paired with a lovely local cabernet. For breakfast we each had incredibly tasty omelets stuffed with a mix of locally grown vegetables. Besides being an Inn Keeper, Kevin also owns a nearby farm and is wonderfully tuned into the local farm-to-table scene.
