“Early in May, the oaks, hickories, maples, and other trees, just putting out amidst the pine woods around the pond, imparted a brightness like sunshine to the landscape, especially in cloudy days, as if the sun were breaking through mists and shining faintly on the hillsides here and there” Henry David Thoreau: Walden Chapter 17 (25) ‘Spring’ “Bed and Breakfast”...

The room was beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck and the fireplace. The meals were delicious, with enough variety for a few days. All of the people were kind, courteous and totally focused on the guests and meeting their individual needs. Highly recommend the in-room massage option!

Six couples celebration for new year. All impressed with three day/night stay. The service and staff outstanding. Requested traditional black-eyed peas for New Year's Day and chef featured it along with stewed tomatoes. Wonderful food and hospitality. Highly rate this venue!

We visited while attending a wedding on site. The service and staff are incredible, the views are amazing and the drinks were reasonable. We had a huge room with a gas fireplace. In addition we had a private balcony with a hot tub. Thanks Jamie!

We spent 3 nights here for my birthday. Everything was perfect, the room was large and comfortable. The food was fantastic, we were hard pressed to save room for desert at dinner, and the breakfasts were really good too. The public areas are so pretty, and the view is wonderful.

--just spent the weekend here for a wedding event, and can hardly say enough about the place. Sitting on the side of a mountain, the 10-ish year old lodge overlooks a small pound framed by mountains near and far. No expense was spared in building the facility. The well-maintained gardens around the property add to the charm. An outdoor room... More

We wanted something extra-special for our 25th anniversary; my husband planned for quite awhile, knowing I love to hike and be alone together with no distractions from other people.
