Nice historic property with limited dining Mon&Tue
Posted Jul 10, 2014
Coming from Route 100, and a gravel road, the town is old but WELL maintained. My wife thought the town was a little spooky, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Our room (33), was very nice with luxurious bedding, updated bathroom, and old fashioned picturesque common areas. It is in the house across the street from the main building and was built in 1816!
We stayed on a Monday night and were a little put-off with the pricey food offerings at the only open restaurant in town. (We had arrived later). Although the website briefly mentioned Phelps Barn would be closed Mondays and Tuesdays, we hoped they would have offered some of Phelps menu items in the main dining area.
The complimentary breakfast was fantastic, service very good. Met the manager. Very friendly and attentive fellow. We didn't have the heart to mention our dissatisfaction with the dining limitations and didn't want to draw public attention to the matter better handled privately.
The community seems very proper and tends to cater to an affluent customer. Although we are not, we still enjoyed the property and old aura it gave off.
