My husband and I just returned from celebrating our anniversary at the Amethyst Inn. I can honestly say that we both had a wonderful, relaxing time and that's saying something since my husband isn't one to sit back and relax!
From the moment we entered the house, we felt welcomed. Tom and Wanda Berman are the owners/innkeepers. Tom, entertaining character that he is, checked us in and made us feel right at home. He gave us a brief introduction to the Inn, our room, and the amenities. He also gave a us a great recommendation for a seafood restaurant (Kyma's). Any questions you might have about the inn, it's history, or the surrounding are, don't hesitate to ask. Tom and Wanda make themselves available to guests but are never intrusive.
Though the inn is one street over from the main highway, the surroundings were quiet. We stayed in the Amber Room which is one of two guest rooms on the first floor. It's located directly off the dining room, just at the bottom of the staircase, and next to the "available at all hours Keurig coffee maker, water cooler and refrigerator". You would think that this would mean you'd hear noise at all hours of the day and night. However, even with every room booked for the weekend, disruptions and noise from other guests coming and going were minimal. The most noise we heard were when guests came down for breakfast (which is served from 7:30 - 9:00 am) and when the guests in the room above us were walking around (but that's the chance you take with reserving a first-floor room).
The room itself was comfortable and spacious, with plenty of storage space for clothing and personal items, although the bathroom only had one small shelf above the sink which made it a little cramped for toiletry items. The bed was comfortable and the Jacuzzi very relaxing. There were nice, personal touches, such as a bottle of sparkling cider and some chocolates to help us celebrate our anniversary, and little gifts left on the bed for us for when we got back to the room after being out for the day.
The breakfasts were amazing! Tom, though he took wonderful care of the guests in the dining room, gave credit where credit was due and duly noted that it was Wanda and the staff who made the delicious fruit cups, biscuits, breads, and casseroles that were served. Wanda, Jean and Tom looked after us and took care that we'd had our fill.
The Inn is such a warm, inviting place to return to after a day of shopping, touring or "antiquing". Thank you for making us feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to make a return trip some time later in the year.
The Amber Room is one of 2 rooms on the first floor, just outside the dining room. Noise was minima...
