My wife and I stayed one night in the Overlook Inn in April 2016. The views, the room, the breakfast, and our hosts were among the best bed and breakfast experiences we've had anywhere...extremely rustic and elegant, and it's always pleasant to have your hosts really appreciate having you there. I wish we had more time to spend there.

We needed a getaway from work and real life. The Overlook Inn was a perfect choice! It was rustic enough for the mountain life to help us relax and sophisticated enough to let us feel pampered. Mike and Lynn are very welcoming to their beautiful inn. Breakfast is a special treat, different and creative each day. We had dinner on our first night and it was also a special treat. The chicken and trout were both yummy! We stayed in The Fieldstone room. Loved the triangular Jacuzzi and the gas stove. We'll go back soon!

My wife and I had a great stay here. Lynn was so accommodating. The first two nights we were there, we were the only guests but she still pulled all the stops out for us and gave us the full service experience. The breakfasts were amazing. Wonderful views and a very quiet place to go and enjoy some romantic time away.

We stayed here on a snowy weekend this winter and it was perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted by Lynn, who was very friendly. She had wine and cheese waiting for us and we were able to enjoy it in front of a massive fireplace. The best part of the living area is the amazing view of the mountains (also very pretty in the snow). We immediately felt at home in our room (The Prince Madoc). We especially loved the huge fireplace (not functional currently, but still very nice) and bathtub. The bed was also very comfortable. The bathroom is across the hall (private), but we didn't mind it as it's in the corner and offers privacy. Another highlight was the amazing breakfast in the morning. We had multiple courses and great coffee to start our day. I couldn't say enough great things about this place. It was as quaint and cozy as we hoped it would be and it made for the perfect getaway. As we were leaving we were able to take a peek into the other rooms. This was nice for us as we are already planning a return trip!
