#1 From: Mrs. Leis of Ohio - "Recently, my hubby treated me to an escape weekend. From the moment we approached the stately Housely House, it was like we were escaping to another time. The grounds were beautiful, and as it was a snowy day, the whole scene looked just like a Currier and Ives etching. The house itself is a testament to 19th century craftsmanship and 20th century skilled restoration. I felt a sense of calm and wonder went I entered the house; I was "blown" away by the beautiful woodwork, the priceless, vintage lighting, the charming decor...it felt like I was stealing a chance to stay in a house that had over a century's worth of stories to tell. All the rooms in the inn have their own brass nameplates; all have a distinct beauty and charm. The beautiful garden area in the back would provide a perfect setting for anything from a wedding to a family reunion; I plan to visit it in the spring or summer when the flowers are in bloom. Although the town has a variety of unique shops, and there are several wonderful new malls and a number of great restaurants a short drive away, my hubby and I found ourselves wanting to return to the inn and the calm it had to offer. Our room provided a beautiful view of the river below, and the whirlpool tub in our connected bathroom was a real treat. We were thrilled to find a wonderful midnight snack (Teresa's scones) on our table waiting us. Best of all, perhaps, was the delicious breakfast we were served the next morning. The night before our innkeeper, Teresa, asked what we'd like to eat and where we'd like to be served, in our room or in the (beautiful) dining area. Leaving, I really just felt refreshed and happy (and convinced we'll make a return trip). So, our escape trip was worth every piece of dirty laundry and every messy room I had to return to. Plus, now I know an escape is only a phone call away! I highy recommend The Housely House with its English garden and charming hosts."
