The inn keepers were extremely friendly. They are severely understaffed however they do make the best of the situation.
My issue with the inn is because their pricing is extremely unrealistic. They charge luxery pricing without being at that level. We stayed in room 1 which is the most modern of the rooms and the most recently decorated. The furnishings were nice as was the bathroom but the room looked as it it weren't completed. There were pencil lines ALL over the bathroom walls which were used to mount the fixtures but they were never erased. there were many little details like that that were ignored. Even at my groupon price I felt overcharged. Additionally, their website is extremely outdated. They no longer have the blue room nor do they have an official chef.
The food was terrible and incredibly over priced. Also we informed the staff that our hot water wasn't working, they let us know they knew about the problem and it would be fixed shortly. They did not follow up and there was never any hot water forcing us to take frigid showers. Upon check out they mentioned that all the unoccupied rooms on the other side of the building had hot water. Overall the stay was very over priced and unpleasant. Save your money and stay somewhere else!
.... Our room had a private deck which was nice because the room did not have air conditioning ( their website said ALL rooms had AC).
Location is good - next to beautiful wooded park and near great hiking at Ascutney. Staff at inn was very nice. Food was good.
The inn was nice and the location was good. Just be aware that you will probably spend another $150 or so on top of the Groupon cost. Even with the $50 dinner coupon, dinner (with wine) was more than twice that. Also we got charged an energy fee of $25 (although this was in the fine print on the Groupon)
So the weekend was not quite as good of a deal as I thought it would be but it's fine as long as you are aware of that.
The ambience and staff!!!!a great place to get away for a week end or holiday!!
Great old house. Very warm welcome from the staff.
