Five Star review from TripAdvisor:  “Room very comfy, cozy, and clean. Cozy, yes, but not too small. It was a bit chilly, called the front desk and the heat was immediately raised. Inn was welcoming and warm. Plenty of areas to sit and knit in comfort. The program was awesome with the famous Norah Gaughan! I hope they offer something like this again. Breakfast yummy. The food at Quick’s Hole was delicious. Lovely inn in a quaint village. Lots of fun. Highly recommend!”
