This year professional cookbook author Jane Doerfer purchased the eight bedroom inn, and remodeled and refurbished it with new beds, linens and other amenities. Guests can read or sit by the fire in the inn's great room, play board games in the breakfast space, or relax in the inn's secluded living room or rear deck. Books and magazines are everywhere. Rather than requiring a set time for breakfast, Doerfer offers a Northern European breakfast buffet with home baking to be enjoyed at the guests' convenience.
Opening season rates range from $95.00 to $135.00 a day for two,
including breakfast. Solo travellers are most welcome and receive a
10% discount, as do any guests arriving by bicycle. There is a reduction
for stays of five days or longer. Families---or a group of friends---can
rent the annex, a separate entrance three bedroom, two bath space
available for $250 a night. The inn is open throughout the year, with
specific dates in winter. Special activities include Doerfer's cooking
classes, and yoga classes taught by her daughter, Joanna Doerfer, a
certified Kripalu yoga instructor and public health educator. To find out
more about the inn's reasonable rates, beautiful setting, and excellent
food, call 802-276-3412 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
