Aptravelnews-September 5th-Whitestone Country Inn, Kingston, TN.–This is a “sanctuary for the soul” as Innkeepers Paul and Jean Cowell like to say. Situated on the shores of Watts Bar Lake, this resort is rated by AAA as a 4-Diamond, Inn for many years in a row. The accomodations here are spectacular, Jacuzzis’s in the bathroom, waterfall showers, beds that can handle the two fat ladies at the circus, comfortably. We opted for the spacious porch at our Mockingbird Suite to relax on, while actually getting some time out to read a book for a change. Great AC, great telly, soaring ceiling and comfort personified in our suite. The offerings at the restaurant overlooking the sloping fields, and meandering lake view were flat- out, excellent! Finally, a stuffed mushroom I loved, and finished to the last slurp off the plate (great sauces here). There was this piece of real cod, not ersatz, but the real piscatorial treat we love- fresh, tasty, healthy cod fish. Barbs steak was a treat, and the desserts were first rate all the way-my apple cake was finished off with coffee that tasted like coffee, not a dishwater limp flavor or non-flavor.
AP Travel News – Bob Newhart knew a good thing when he found it. He made the Waybury Inn his choice for shooting his TV show at this early American institution. The Inn has been around from stagecoach days as early as 1810, and kept open continually through two centuries. Fully remodeled by current owners Tracy Getty and Joe Sutton, food and accomodations veterans, husband and wife team, the Inn for the last 13-years has especially excellent fare for Inn guests and locals too! We had a chance to try their trout almondine and a salmon entree’ and we were a whole lot more than pleased!
The immaculate grounds and the service from their friendly staff made us and as it shown through, other guests feel right at home. This great place is also pet friendly as it is people friendly. Located in East Middlebury, Vermont, we had our slice of excellent desserts and cool, refreshing air to forever remember our hosts great hospitality. While at the Waybury we visited the incredibly interesting Shelburne Museum and the Morgan Horse Farm. Together with a visit to a Teddy Bear Factory we had plenty to marvel over and do in the two days we spent at the Inn and surrounding areas.
The Inn serves dinner nightly and has a Pub too! Contact the Waybury Inn at 802-388-4015 or 800-348-1810 also check out their website at www.wayburyinn.com.
APtravelnews-May August 28th -We were in Connecticut. We stayed at the Copper Beech Inn, in Ivoryton, Connecticut. We were close-on to the widest part of the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. A perfect spot to unwind a bit, and to get ready for our foray into Long Island. This Inn, besides a fine creative breakfast, offers gourmet fare for dinner that rivals dishes from even the most celebrated, fine New York or Hartford restaurants. After we checked in, and settling down, we sat down, looked out at a delightful garden, and supped on an unusually tastey asparagus soup; a lobster salad appetizer, and then we hunched over our plated duck, and a bouillebaisse fit for Queen Elizabeth. Yes, it all was that terrfic! Three big cheers to the Brasserie Pip, a Four-Diamond AAA restaurant! And of course; Chef Tyler Anderson with the Pip for 4-years. After dinner we checked out the lighthouses and the Connecticut River Museum on the edge of the river as it flows out into the Long Island Sound.
This area of Connecticut is astoundingly beautiful. Homes here are definitely for the very well heeled, and firmly pocketed.
Our room at the Inn had a balcony looking out to a wooded area, and the peace and quiet we all enjoy after a long day on the road or visiting area attractions. The bath had one. A giant Jacuzzi! This Inn offers
extremely commodious suites and rooms-we were very pleased! Get in touch at: The Copper Beech Inn 860 -767- 0330 go: www.Copperbeachinn.com and take a look!
