Like staying with family

5 on August 22, 2014

My husband and I stayed with Patty and Kevin earlier this month to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time. The rooms were very nice. Far better than I expected from the internet pictures. We stayed in the Avalon room and our bathroom was small and the sink was in the bedroom section, which was a bit unusual, but overall the room was clean and comfortable. If we stay there again, I'd opt for the Through the Looking Glass Suite. The bedroom is larger, so there is more lounging room if you're looking for that. More importantly, to me, the bathroom is larger. It's in the hallway, not attached to the bedroom, but there is a curtain to pull for privacy that separates the bedroom/bathroom from the hallway and other guests. Breakfast was delicious. We had fruit every morning with tea (or coffee) and juice. Our first morning we had a quiche-like egg & veggie bake with bacon that was wonderful and lemon zucchini bread. Everything was homemade and seconds were encouraged! The next morning Patty treated us to Belgian waffles and cranberry scones. It was obvious that the hosts were willing to go out of their way to make everyone's stay enjoyable. They offered suggestions on where to eat in the area and were very flexible with our schedules, both to check in and for breakfast. It was a thoroughly wonderful experience.

Great stay!

We stayed in the Avonlea Room at the Tea Kettle Inn for three nights during our recent trip and it was the highlight of the trip. Patty and Kevin were very gracious hosts and treated us like family. The breakfasts were excellent. We would recommend the Tea Kettle in to anyone. Jim & Lee-Ann

Very nice, A bit of road noise due to being in a front room. Having the sink in the bedroom instead of the bath was difficult. Otherwise it was a very nice stay. Dinner at the Cat's Meow was excellent.

Tea Kettle Inn!

Just stayed there in Sept for the weekend of the Celtic Themed Ren Faire. What a lovely place. The hosts were very personable and attentive to everyone. The breakfast was fit for a king! I do believe I will be returning there for sure. Bob N Sue
