As with many old New England homes, the inn has seen a multitude of renovations and additions. The southern half of the inn began life as the original farmhouse on the property, and now holds the formal parlor, our dining areas, and the screened, 100 foot wraparound porch facing Long Pond. Three guestrooms (the Moonlit, Rose Garden and Tapestry) are located here as well.
The northern section of the inn actually began as a separate carriage house. It was moved to its current position, adjacent to the house, and connected via the kitchen, long ago. Today, the former barn houses the Great Room — where guests enter upon arrival, with its post-and-beam ceiling and fieldstone fireplace — and three guest rooms (the Sage Suite, the Burgundy, and the Arbor).
The Great Room houses the guest television, telephone, mini-fridge, paperback library and game collection and 24 hour butler’s pantry (for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, instant soup & cider, popcorn or pretzels). The Great Room, which faces the lake, is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book, work on a puzzle, or just relax in front of the fire. (Just pack yourself … we’ll provide the rest!)
The parlor is a charming sitting area, with formal antiques and a Victorian feel, is a bit more intimate, and overlooks the screened porch and Long Pond.
The wraparound porch, running along the south side and front of the inn, is fully screened, and offers a wonderful view of the grounds and the lake.
With about two acres of rolling lawns, there’s always a bench, Adirondack chair, or hammock swing with your name on it. The front lawns and gardens face Long Pond, and are a perfect spot for listening to the waterfall or the loons. The courtyard garden behind the inn offers a fountain for soothing sound, and the heavily-treed conservation land that backs the inn offers privacy, shade and leafy views.
