Peaceful, serene retreat
Posted Jul 9, 2016 on Hotels
We had a fantastic stay at the Country Willows Inn. It is a quaint, charming inn that is tucked away on a dead end street, so it feels like you are in the country, yet very close to town (about 5-10 minutes from downtown/Shakespeare Festival). We loved the spaciousness of our room (Pine Ridge Suite), and large, sunlit bathroom, with soaking tub and separate walk-in shower. Lots of skylights, so if having a darkened room is important to you, this wouldn't be the room for you, but we didn't mind. The owners pay attention to details, from having coffee/tea/cookies accessible 24/7 to cleaning rooms while you are enjoying their gourmet breakfast. The only thing we would have changed, is that some of the breakfasts leaned on the 'sweeter' side, and we are more savory people when it comes to breakfast, but it's such a minor detail. We loved our stay; the pool area is absolutely gorgeous with its cascading waterfalls, dancing dragonflies and butterflies, and interesting flowers and foliage. We will definitely be back!
