Befitting its rural surroundings, the inn's interiors incorporate eco-friendly materials like reclaimed wood and on-site restaurant The Barn applies a farm-to-table philosophy preparing savory yet healthful seasonal cuisine. Rooms are individually appointed in calming hues, sporting items from local antique shops and most are kitted out with working fireplaces. Beautifully designed bathrooms display mosaic tile and handcrafted claw-foot tubs. Focusing on holistic wellbeing, the Inn has a sun-drenched Yoga Loft and the array of classes (offered 7 days a week) range from therapeutic Hatha sessions to tantric Kundalini. Perk for guests: you can attend one complimentary class each day of your stay.

Cheers! During the complimentary wine and cheese hour on weekends, sip on vinos hand-selected by the Inn's sommelier.
