The Carriage House is very private and cozy, the grounds are lovely and peaceful, and the food and hospitality superb. Thank you Jen and Giulio (and Buddy) for making this a very memorable milestone anniversary for us. We will be back!"

    "Together you have created a magnificent setting for rest and relaxation. The charm of the interior space and the woodworking details are matched only by Jen's magical gardens. Last evening with windows wide open, we inhaled the fresh air, felt a soft breeze, listened to the water trickling from the bear fountain and felt like we captured a little piece of heaven. The sights, scents and sounds of summer at Bear's Lair are captivating."
