Fodor's Review

A magnificent copper beech tree shades this 1890 inn, set on 7 acres of wooded Connecticut River valley. The venerable landmark has a luxe, sophisticated, even grand look. Rooms and suites, split between the main house and what was once a turn-of-the-20th-century carriage house, are all lavishly dressed with fine fabrics and furnishings, and all have fireplaces, radiant-heat flooring, and whirlpool baths. Some have soaring post-and-beam ceilings. The formal restaurant

($$$$)and the newer Brasserie Pip ($$$) are open to all for fine French cuisine at night, and the inn serves guests a lavish breakfast each morning.
