I wasn't going to write another review of this inn but the new innkeeper has made some very nice changes. First, they now serve a plated breakfast instead of a buffet. I believe a plated breakfast is more suited for this type of inn. This morning I had, to start, cinnamon apple crepe with a yummy whip cream type sauce. For the main course I had a made to order omelet (spinach, onion and cheese), brown sugar ribbon bacon (to die for) and parmesan roasted potatoes. The chef even came out to the dinning room to see how we liked the food. It was an excellent breakfast. The other thing is that now at happy hour one of the staff stays there to serve you. It also gives you an opportunity to ask questions about the inn. One thing that baffled me on my previous stays was why they served Chez-its at the happy hour. Everything else was rather upscale but Chez-its? Turns out they are Nora's favorite snack. Another wonderful stay for us. We stayed in the Elizabeth and Darcy room this time. Very nice! And Lynn the new innkeeper is wonderful!
A very lovely INN

Mainly for women- there was 10 women and two guys named Charlie. The Inn is very nice- great bathrooms and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was super. Better if you are a fan(I wasn't , but my wife was )

If you are a Nora Roberts fan-and I have been for decades!!!- but even if you are not-GO! This beautifully restored stone resting spot is superb! From the moment you enter you feel at home! A big toasty fireplace warms you as you enter a kitchen stocked with treats to select at your convenience! Cookies on the hallway table, a delightful staff and two yummy restaurants and a bakery next door will have you rejoicing! The rooms are so comfortable with super bathrooms ...and the library? Perfect! Grab an NR novel and tea- better yet a shot of Irish whiskey...and you are in Nora Roberts Heaven! I love this place! I cannot wait to return! Meeting Nora is the best part and her hubby is funny too!
A book comes alive

This is the second time this year that I have been wined and dined at the Inn. Went in January with one friend when we found out that the Inn BoonsBoro (which goes along with Nora Roberts trilogy) really existed. The staff is outstanding, the breakfast is awesome and the accommodations are superb. The pictures on the website only are half of what the rooms really look like....Nora has spared no detail. When I showed pics to my friends and talked about the Inn, the Fit Center, etc., my friends from Wilmington had to do a road trip. Looking forward to going again and taking a group of friends from Long Island. Also the bakery next to the Inn has great pastry and soup and Vesta has yummy pizza and salads. You won't go away hungry. I had a cooler and took some of the food home to enjoy the next day.
Jane and Rochester room

the inn couldn't be any more 5 star, service, accommodations and every detail were impeccable. there were many expensive touches, paintings, knick-knacks and ambiance, were beyond any place I had ever visited. I will say I felt we were in lockdown. no one was allowed to visit us in our room, we were staying in the area to visit my husband's sister and her husband, they came with us to the checkin, we were told they weren't allowed upstairs to see the room, reason being we were in a private home. Aren't all B&B's private homes? I must be honest, I felt very uncomfortable from that point on, couldn't fully enjoy such a beautiful place. when I provided the feedback, I never received a response. I respect that the inn is owned by a celebrity, but in the spirit of innkeeping, I think guests need to be afforded a little more latitude.
