Weekend De-stressing Getaway

5 on April 01, 2014

I planned a surprise weekend getaway for my girlfriend. Both of our jobs are very stressful and we have all the normal responsibilities of a home. I wanted to take her away somewhere where we have no responsibilities and could just relax. I got a good referral for the Inn at the Park and called to talk to Mary Ann. She was very informative and gracious when I spoke to her on the phone and I booked a weekend in Saint Julien. From the minute we arrived, Mary Ann and Jay made us feel at home. Happy hour with hors d'oeuvres and wine was excellent. When we checked into our room my girlfriend asked me if I would be upset if we didn't go out anywhere and just stayed in the room. This is exactly what I had hoped for. To feel so comfortable in our room that we just have a bed picnic and played games. It was so much fun. Breakfast the next morning was amazing, a new recipe that Jay was trying and it was excellent. The next happy hour and hors d'oeuvres with wine was also very good. Jay was very accommodating that evening when I requested an ice bucket as I like to have ice cold water all the time. I sat and talked with him in the parlor for about 20 minutes. You just felt so natural to talk to him. Breakfast the next morning was just as scrumptious and we felt like we were leaving behind new friends but we will definitely see you again.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

Stayed Jan 17-19, 2014. Had a lovely weekend. Mary Ann and Jay truly understand what being owners of a B&B means and do fulfill the experience, The company was delightful and the food excellent. Hope to go back several times in the future.

Delightful inn and innkeepers

Really nice place and wonderful folks...away from the hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to everything.

Fantastic B&B!

My fiance and I stayed here for a mini vacation and we had such a great time! Mary Ann and Jay are such kind people and I hope to stay with them again sometime soon!

Wonderful B & B

We found the "Inn at the Park" to be an extremely wonderful experience. Both MaryAnn and Jay are just super hostess and host! The food was exceptional - but the camaraderie was even better. It made for conversations that were fun and enjoyable with the other guests and hosts. Will definitely return!!! AL & DEBBIE HOFFMAN
