Housed in a painstakingly renovated and beautifully expanded barn, the Inn at Sawmill Farm weds mountainous terrain and vistas with charming accommodations. Rooms within the main house (up to a $285 value) cradle guests in cozy splendor with plush comforters, colorful décor, flat-screen TVs, and private baths for uninterrupted practice of cetacean sign language. Certain deluxe rooms proffer a jetted tub to run stress tests on rubber duckies, and others feature private sitting areas or balconies on which to sip a luxurious libation while conducting heated conversations with mountains. Drawing from a seasonal list, the staff will recommend a bottle of wine or champagne (a $20 value), which can be enjoyed privately, or amid a roaring fireplace and new acquaintances in the common living room.
Behind Magical Child's enchanting green and gold, Main Street–esque storefront, sunlight floods shelves of educational and imagination-stimulating toys, books, and games. Towering stuffed animals peer down on train sets—the way Clifford the Dog peers down on real trains—and puzzles from Melissa and Doug, alongside packages of Legos and Hasbro board games. A cornucopia of colorful wares permeates the shop, in which eyes can turn in no direction without meeting the glare of an alluring item. Racks of gently used clothing outfit children of up to 6 years of age, and a selection of more mature gag gifts and brainteasers grants older patrons diversion from humdrum office lives and asparagus-steaming socials.
