Company info

The owner/host is well-informed about local history and attractions. He is also a bit of a foodie and can offer good advice on where to eat locally. The atmosphere in the Inn is relaxed and comfortable. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the great rooms with their collections of art and antiques. Most of all, it is a very relaxed and comfortable home away from home. The Inn has many repeat guests who use it as their stop of choice on the way to cottages in the East Coast, trips to Quebec City or the New England States. The absence of television gives guests a break from the turmoil of the world - although true news junkies can always stream on their laptops! The Inn is also a great location for groups of up to ten people. Various families, cycle groups and women's groups have rented the entire Inn so they can enjoy things as a group. They will use the fire-pit in the garden, play cards in the library or even give the 150 year-old square grand piano a tryout. Robert tries to be as responsive to your needs as possible, while remaining discretely in the background. There is a Scottie dog named Hamish on the property.
