Cathy from Rush, New York, recently stayed in one of our Fireside Queen rooms. Check out her great review:

“My husband and I decided to spend the night here after attending our son’s basketball tournament in Andover. We had the queen room with a fireplace — very spacious and clean with a nice view. It’s a real fireplace that the staff comes up to light a 3-hour log for you! Basic continental breakfast was well-stocked. Highly recommend for a nice getaway.”

We agree with Cathy: Reserve one of our Fireside Queen rooms for a relaxing weekend getaway!

A must see on the 2018 tour is Linda Huey’s studio in rural , Alfred NY🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞
“Clay is my pathway into the natural world. Both my pottery and sculpture are inspired by an investigation of nature, in process and in form. Over the years, I have developed distinctly different bodies of work, pottery and sculpture. The pottery celebrates growth and abundance in nature, while the sculpture investigates problematic influences of our culture on the environment.”
