Charming rooms, incredible location, fabulous food and wonderful attention to detail by Innkeepers, Susan, Anne and Nat. We were there in early December and unfortunately, not during a dinner service, but if Anne's oatmeal pancakes or Susan's goat cheese and spinach omelet where any indication, I suspect dinner is fabulous as well. The Inn was built specifically as a B&B: every room has a working fireplace with wood at hand to use and lots of little spaces like the library or upstairs sitting room to enjoy. We didn't get to enjoy the huge porch which stretches across the back with rockers for all....or the wonderful outdoor patio and BBQ area which I imagine get lots of use in the warmer weather. The ride in across the mountain and down to the Inn was a bit hair-raising for me (not keen on heights) but well worth it. Turn off the cell phones, put away the Ipads and electronics.....let the stress melt away....you won't be disappointed.
