These ladies were even more lovely than their review.
The 1795 Acorn Inn is not to be missed. This should be rated 5 stars. We spent 2 nights there as a “Girls Weekend” over Memorial Day weekend and couldn’t have been more pleased. Sheryl greeted us warmly upon arrival and helped plan our entire weekend with recommendations of wineries, restaurants, antique shops, and wonderful places to stop for views of the lakes. She had maps and brochures ready for us and routed us. Then we had a tour of the place.
We stayed in “The Barn”, a separate building in the rear of the main house, but steps away from the main historic house. It was immaculate. The kitchenette was well stocked with dishes, glasses, snacks, and beverages; the large bathroom and hallway had a lot of storage. There were plush white bathrobes and slippers available in the closet, and toiletries on the vanity including toothbrushes, paste, razors, creams, etc. Sheryl thought of everything!
The beds were extremely comfortable- one king and one twin-size. The stuffed arm chairs and ottomans were clean and comfortable for watching TV and enjoying a glass of wine.
The breakfasts are to die for! Sheryl is an fabulous chef and our two breakfasts were wonderful. She served all the courses on fine china and crystal stemware. One breakfast consisted of homemade biscuits with her homemade plum jam, an individual egg soufflé, sausages, fresh fruit mixed with yougurt/custard, and juice, tea/coffee. The second morning she served creme brûlée French toast (wow!) with sausage patties, fresh fruit, and juice, tea/coffee. The conversation around the table with the other guests was interesting and Sheryl would add a few comments as well.
The common rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The decor is colonial with lovely pieces from Sheryl ‘s time spent in Hong Kong.
This is one of the best b & b’s I’ve stayed in; highly recommend it! We hope to return some day!
