The Inn at Kent Falls, right after the first snow fall.

The dining room — where complimentary breakfast is served each morning.

One of the many casual seating areas in the front of the Inn.

Another seating area, this one with a working fireplace, original to the 1700s building.

Charming original details, this is on the second floor where most of the guest rooms are located.

A den with fireplace, also available for guests to relax and hang out.

Our suite, with a sort of beachy farmhouse feel.

The suite featured an antique desk and several comfortable seating areas.

A pinstriped settee and charming schoolhouse desk in our room.

The farmhouse bathroom featured a spacious shower, linens by Frette and toiletries by Aveda.

Highs & Lows

  • Authenticity and originality. It really feels like you're at the most quintessential home in a spectacular part of nature. Lots of fireplaces and intimate places within the common areas for reading and relaxing.

  • Your stay comes with complimentary breakfast and it was delicious - frittata, pastries, coffee, fruit, orange juice. Really great.

  • Character and charm with class.

  • Walls are thin, it's an old house! It was fine for us but if it's fully packed it might be an issue overhearing other guests.
