Our group enjoyed the hospitality of the Inn all one Saturday. Our hostesses were delightful, hand preparing both breakfast and lunch. The home is fairly new, but constructed with used period materials, and is completed with antiques of all kinds: furnishings, books, memorabilia and artwork. You will not be disappointed to come and stay. You can walk paths to cascade waterfalls, visit the goats and Great Pyrenees dogs. You will eat healthy and delicious food and enjoy the fresh country air. Birds are abundant! We can't wait to schedule another visit.
