My husband and I returned to Apples and Quails this year after a wonderful stay last year. Ming and Walter were so welcoming. We felt like we were returning to our ‘home away from home.’ We were greeted with a delicious Cherry Clafouti, baked by Ming.
Our room was so cozy and just as we remembered it! We stayed in the Quail’s Nest. There are so many nice little touches that show how much Ming and Walter care about the comfort of their guests. They have Lindor chocolates on the pillows, handmade bath salts, soap, and bubble bath in the bathroom, and an emergency kit filled with toothbrushes, razors, etc. in case you have forgotten something.
The Living Room area is stocked with tea, coffee, cream, and homemade snacks including cookies and dried apples. This is really nice to have access to throughout the day!
Breakfast was delicious and huge! We were given a choice of two main courses each day, and plenty of extras. On our first morning, we opted for fruit salad, toast with preserves, and a poached egg with lox on zucchini fritters. The second morning we had egg blossoms, which were so tasty that I asked for the recipe so that I could try making them at home!
Overall, our stay at Apples and Quails was wonderful. We had a really nice time and were so happy to be back. We really look forward to our next visit!
