Great Feal Place
Before my wife, 15 year old boy, his friend and myself booked this place, we, too, looked up reviews on the inn. there were a couple of disheartening comments about cleanliness, service, and even the bowling alley. Now, having just gotten back from our three days there, I gotta say that those comments are totally unfounded, and off base. Trust me, this is a real good place to go and relax, feel good, and eat and sleep just fine. If you are looking for a modern up to date internet ready place, go elsewhere. If you want a ultra clean room, with good housekeeping come here. If you require good home cooking with quick, friendly service, come here. Still hungry after you finished your plate, or something else strikes your fancy to taste, no problem; Chris happily brings it on for you. desserts were also homemade, fresh and good. musta gained 5 pounds! they will do whatever they can to satisfy you. they even came out to sing happy birthday to my son, complete with lights out in the dining room, candle in cake, and singing wait staff. The bowling alley was quaint, and a great thing to have at our disposal. yea, it is old, some lanes don't work from time to time, but who cares. it is all part of the overall charm, they are real wood lanes and again the people who fun that area are so helpful and nice. they also house a couple of old video machines, a pool table, soda fountain and cool gift shop. they are on a huge property, so go for a hike around. amongst other things, you will find trails, cross country skiing(could'nt use, cause there was no snow; but if there was they have the skis for you),a quaint covered bride over a stunning falls that leads to a swimming hole, and even a barn with our new friend, the family's horse, George. Please bring him some apples and carrots when you go visit. he is sooo sweet. so, o.k., got three complaints. the pool is adequate, but had waaaay tooo much chlorine for any human to stand, secondly, they could use some internet service, and lastly they are about 35 minutes from either Hunter or Windham mountains, not the 20 minutes that we were told.
We will always look to come back here. In the spring/ summer we will come for the added golf that they offer.
Anyway, you realy can't go wrong here. We are better people after our stay here, it was exactly what the doctor ordered. Kudos to Winter Clove Inn!!
