Fodor's Review

If you're looking for a relaxing country getaway, this 1808 Federal-style mansion, a former sheep farm set on a wide meadow, is a sure bet. The historic redbrick house has a sturdy comfort that distinguishes it from daintier inns. Owners Gillian and Dennis Pettit, along with their dogs Jack and Gracie, bring an English touch to it all. Most rooms have crown molding, soaring ceilings, and four-poster beds topped with fine linens. A separate two-bedroom cottage has its own kitchen. Thousands of acres of nature preserve surround the property's 8 acres of cleared meadow, making it great for hiking and cross-country skiing.
