You Can't Judge a Book by its Cover

These innkeepers really need a lesson on curb appeal. When we pulled into the driveway, I thought "Oh No!" The driveway/garage area was an eye sore. Also, you could see that the whole perimeter of the inn once had perennial gardens that are now full of weeds and saplings. The pool was absolutely lovely, but there was nothing nice to look at while you were floating in it. You couldn't even sit in the Adirondack chair because there were weeds growing up through it. While floating in the pool and looking at the inn you could see a pile of cleaning supplies left at the back door and deflated pool toys on the ground. And if you had a dinner reservation, don't watch the clock, because it did not work. But once inside the front door, everything was A+, from the interior design, to the lovely rooms, beds, linens, etc. The four-course breakfast was superb and the inn keepers were wonderful. What a shame that people driving by will never know how lovely things are inside. And we were not the only ones to notice. While chatting with another couple over breakfast they mentioned that they almost left after pulling into the driveway. But they decided to wait to see what their room was like. I have to wonder how many did not take that chance. Will we stay there again? I'm really not sure. I rate the inside A+, but the outside a D. You almost need to do two ratings, one for inside and one for outside. I will base my review on the inside.

An Old Fashioned Get Away.

The inn was located a good 20 min ride from the closest village that was full of small antiques stores. The whole house was tastefully decorated with vivid colors and schemes and romantic old style furniture with attention to detail. We booked the biggest room which looked like an old French country bedroom. Furniture, fabrics and decor items were tastefully combined and arranged. The bathroom was accordingly coordinated with the rest of the room and it featured an amazing jacuzzi. The fresh flowers in the room were a plus. Breakfast was well prepared and filling and it took approximately an hour and a half to two hours to be prepared and served. Be prepared to spend that amount of time in the breakfast table before you make any plans for the day. We overall believe that $550 for a two night stay is extravagant for a Bed and Breakfast located upstate New York.
