This Inn has a wonderful setting just across from a beautiful lake. However, even when the weather prevented us from enjoying the free canoe/boat hire this Inn was still a great place to stay. We booked one of the cheaper rooms on the 2nd floor of the Inn and it was a good room for the price. It was clean, very well furnished and with a very comfortable bed, however air-con or a ceiling fan would have been a welcome addition-the windows only opened a small amount (a safety feature I assume) and even on a rainy fall night the room got stuffy quite quickly. The common rooms of the inn were lovely-plenty of comfy sofas and very peaceful and cosy. The afternoon tea was a pleasant surprise-lovely cheeses with cake and cookies-although it might have been nice, given this inn's emphasis on food and the areas wealth of produce, if the cheese would have been local, or labelled as such.
Breakfast was good; a nice selection of fruit and muffins etc, with an excellent hot main.
We reserved a place at dinner on the first night of our stay and we weren't disappointed. The food was great-almost on a par with some of the michelin-starred restaurants we have eaten at in the UK and we enjoyed a fabulous, well-priced wine. The staff were friendly and attentive. However, although some people may appreciate the talk given by Brian the chef about the food we are about to eat, we found it a little over the top; the food is good enough to speak for itself.
New London itself has a few nice shops and other restaurants but it's main draw has got the be the great coutryside around-we climbed Mt Kearsage from the Winslow State Park and it was a great way to spend a morning, even if the clouds prevented us from enjoying what must be a spectacular view.
