A little run down
Reviewed 3 months ago

Nice, but needs some care.

First, the positive: breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and catered to any food issues. The outdoor hot tub is hot, strong and surrounded by nice stones. Lovely room with comfy bed and beautiful linens. Gracious bathroom.

Now the not so positive: It was a little depressing, living room dark and poorly lit. Front steps cracked, shower heads green with lime, outdoor furniture rusted or torn. The “balcony” was an old deck accessed through the closet. And there is nothing around for miles.

The innkeeper made an effort but it seemed like too much for one person to handle alone. It was a romantic weekend, but not quite the luxury as advertised.

fabulous spot

I have recently stayed at Rock Hall (once for business and a return visit for pleasure). It is a lovely, huge house that is perfectly and eclectically decorated. I was a little worried as I drove down the street from the main highway, that the house would never appear! But there it was at the end of the driveway, massive front door beckoning:>} Despite the chilly weather I couldn't help but linger in the circular drive to admire the large trees and appreciate the identifying placards in front of them. I noticed the tennis courts and orchards, vowing to return in in different seasons.
My host (Michael) was charming and welcoming. He is an excellent bartender and chef. My room was sumptuous and had amazing views of the woods and grounds. I felt safe and cossetted. I look forward to my next visit!
And at the risk of calling attention to a crank-pot, I must say that as a single female traveler, I experienced nothing of what a previous reviewer noted. Sadly, I think someone was having a very bad day and needed to take it out on someone..:>{

Delightful and different

Last week I had one of my most memorable stays ever in the very unique Rock Hall. The inn sits on 23 acres and I would have enjoyed exploring the grounds had the weather been more hospitable. Michael Somers, the host, made up for the chilly damp weather with his warm welcome. Sitting with a cocktail and delicious nibbles in front of a awe-inspiring fire made me feel instantly at home and indeed transported to another time. The room was large but somehow cosy too...I intend on revisiting in warmer weather...

After dinner and a film in a neighbouring town, I returned to a fire ready in my room. Very special..Micheal asked if I might like to watch a film in the inn’s cinema...complete with freshly made popcorn and a glass o wine..perfect...

My room was charming...huge bathroom...even sheets and towels were tastefully coordinated...add the fire and the silence, I slept wonderfully...

Would’ve gladly lingered several days, but alas could not. Michael sent me off with a breakfast he prepared, complete with fresh squeezed orange juice from a French press!

Do treat yourself and notice such details as the wall coverings and art and glassware.

I will return in the spring for a secon look

Originally, I was booked at this lodge for three days for business travel but due to the events that happened at this lodge I cut my stay short and checked in immediately at another nearby Marriot hotel for $150 cheaper.

The Owner / Caretaker is extremely CREEPY (see bullet 5) and CHEAP. Items not mentioned on website:
1. There is no spa or true chef.
2. Only drink tap water.
3. Don’t touch the thermostat.
4. Linens and towels smell musty and old.
5. Expect footsteps near your door or your door to be opened at night.
6. Expect the Owner / Caretaker to be upset if you don’t drink his homemade orange juice or eat his food.
7. Don’t expect the Owner / CareTaker to look professional at anytime during your stay.
8. The house was dirty and there was an abundance of personal belongings, including outdated technology.

After my departure, I found out that this lodge has been up for sale for the past 4 years and explains the sad state of affairs of the house but nothing can explain away the SCARY Owner.

Rock Hall...rocks!

My wife and I have always enjoyed B&B road trip destinations throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, the Finger Lakes, etc. Happening upon Rock Hall Luxe Lodging's website, we were intrigued with it's history and decided to celebrate our 49th anniversary in relatively nearby upper NW Connecticut...so happy we did! We caught a perfect "top down" convertible drive day, pulled into the circular driveway, and once thru the front door we were immediately transported to another place in time. Period pieces in every direction! Truly wondrous. We were warmly greeted by Michael, the innkeeper, and he graciously helped us with our luggage to our immaculate second floor Chamber #3 (just 5 rooms in total adds to the feeling of exclusivity and calm). Trust me, Michael is not your everyday innkeeper, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. He showed us all around this National Register estate, pointing out so many incredible details too numerous to now mention. He rightfully fancies himself a "mixologist" (try the Vesper, ala James Bond), but his culinary talents are also "a cut above." Happy hour poolside drinks (included!) were accompanied by his fancifully delicious home made hors d'oeuvres. Breakfasts are sumptuous--fabulous fritatas, amazing gravlax, the freshest fruits and freshly squeezed OJ, etc. All beautifully plated. What a way to start your day...no need for lunch. Dinner is not served, but Michael referred us to fabulous nearby restaurants for each evening of our 4-night stay. He's a foodie, and won't steer you wrong. You'll feel "at home" with Michael, while watching him do his thing in the kitchen. You'll feel pampered lazing by the beautiful stone edged pool (choose from a hundred different CD's to fuel the multi speaker system). Frankly, you won't want to leave. But...leave you will, with a smile on your face, determined to return. D. Slater New City, NY
