"My recent stay at Black Dog Farm was absolutely delightful...from being greeted by two sweet and gentle black labs upon my arrival to being awed by the beauty of the house and property.  My bedroom was small and cozy with an old stone fireplace and the most comfy bed and pillows ever, truly appreciated after many hours of driving.  In the morning, I opened the French doors in my room to relax on the expansive balcony overlooking lush fields with horses and goats grazing in the morning sun.  I loved the huge windows in the house, the beautiful stone fireplaces in every room, old wide board floors, the grand staircase that welcomed visitors and the narrow back staircase that led to my room, and the wall of French doors overlooking the patio and gardens in the kitchen/dining/sitting room.  Having driven through very historical areas over several days and reconnecting with the history of our country, my stay at the inn was a step into another time of open space and peaceful existence that we tend to forget about.  Thank you so very much, Kristen and Phil."  -Carol H.
