We have stayed at the Grouse House 5 times. Every time we visit we love it more and more. Gilbert goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. It is in a great location and has beautiful views. We enjoy watching the creatures and appreciate Gilbert's attention to detail. Our recent trip was restful and peaceful.

Great Break from NY

My wife and I had a wonderful stay with Gilbert. His house is in a lovely spot, full of wildlife and great views. The room is very comfortable with an adjoining terrace and hot tub. The breakfast is tasty and plentiful! We would happily go back and stay here again.

I want to say it's no good so it doesn't get booked up

One of a kind awesome experience. Totally private like you have a house in the woods to yourself. Gilbert has though of everything and is always there if you need anything but never there if you don't. We will keep going back forever. Thanks Gilbert!!! See you soon!!

Great Overall!

The house is unique and very cozy. Gilbert was nothing but a great host. This is not your traditional bed n breakfast were you have a invasion of privacy at times. You will be the only couple and Gilbert is very respectful. Good places to eat in the area and the animals are a huge plus. Cant wait to come back and see some bear!

I recently visited the Grouse House for a weekend with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time while there. The home has an atmosphere that welcomes you so warmly and Gilbert had much to do with creating that friendly vibe! He was simply amazing and was on top of everything at all times. It was a very romantic escape from the city and it was just what we were looking for. Gilbert has many suggestions for things to do in the town if you choose to take a break from the beautiful outdoor hot tub! I would strongly recommend the Grouse House as the perfect weekend getaway!

My boyfriend and I just got back from staying the weekend at the Grouse House and it was above our expectations! Gilbert is such a friendly person and walked us through and showed us everything and then left us be to ourselves. The wildlife on the property was my favorite part, deer and all kinds of birds, and I got to see my first chipmunk! Also the baked breakfast goods, fruit, and orange juice in the morning hit the spot and is a very nice touch. Very happy with everything and will definitely be back in the future. -Jessica

Great spot for a tranquil getaway!

Really enjoyed our (all-too-short) stay at the Grouse House. The property is beautiful, the room is really well-designed and comfortable, and Gilbert was a great host. Saw some really cool wildlife (deer and turkeys!) and enjoyed walking around the property, laying peacefully on the hammock, and lounging in the hot tub. The privacy is really wonderful as well. I would definitely recommend to others, and will definitely return!

Perfect Place for a Private Weekend

The Grouse House is a great place for a private weekend. Gilbert, the owner/host, is very friendly and accommodating, and is accessible and helpful while simultaneously providing you with complete privacy. The room is very comfortable and clean, the setting is beautiful, and the hot tub is perfectly located with a great view. I would definitely recommend this place. It is well worth the money.

A hidden treasure

We escaped to this little hideaway for a couple of nights away and can't wait to go back. The Grouse House's gracious host, Gilbert, thinks of everything you could want or need for a private getaway. The squirrels put on quite a show every morning and the family of deer that visit every evening are just breathtaking. This is by far one of the nicest places we have stayed. I gave an 'outstanding' rating for dining because although only breakfast is provided, it too is wonderful. Well worth the cost if you are looking for a private, romantic getaway in a unique setting.

A Great Experience

A beautiful room with a deck, romantic outdoor hot tub, in-room jacuzzi and a gracious friendly host. Our room had lovely views of the mountains, and the backyard wildlife. I recommend the Grouse House to everyone, and I hope to spend another weekend there.
