    Here three rivers wend through a Colonial landscape of Minutemen's fields where moss-covered stonewalls embrace the homes of Hawthorne, Alcott, Emerson and Thoreau. As you amble in the footsteps of Patriots and Poets you will savor the Inn's unique location near the Author's homes, the Village Shops, Walden Pond, Minuteman National Park and the Old North Bridge, where was fired, "the shot heard 'round the world".

    The excellent reputation you enjoy led us here. The experience we have had exceeds even those lofty expectations. We woke up the first morning and said, "This is what it is supposed to be like". From food to accommodations through to the advice, the entire experience has been most excellent.

    Thank-you for another wonderful visit. I stayed with you a few years ago when I paddled my kayak on Walden Pond at sunrise one glorious fall morning. Mist cloaked the water and I glimpsed deer drinking along the pond's edge, heard a loon call, and breathed in the aroma of fall leaves and wood smoke. It was a highlight of my life. Once again I made a pilgrimage of sorts to Walden. Thank-you for your warmth and wonderful hospitality.

    Our stay for our 15th anniversary has had the luxurious simplicity of three roses in a water glass here on the desk as I write. The first warm wind of June stirs the lace curtains and rustles the Sunday papers. In this room, as in a good marriage, there is space, and time, and comfort; there is sitting apart and sleeping together; there is talk and silence. The memory of each room-like the memory of each June- becomes part of a life together. Thank-you for adding to our memory.
