We stayed mid week in the Gardner's Cottage. The cottage was gorgeous (platformed hot tub with fireplace, shower room, screened porch with french doors...

The Inn at Irish Hollow was the perfect "green" setting with the lovely sounds of birds chirping everywhere you set foot. Each meal was not only a work of art, but also made with so much love...

I was able to discuss this with the owner, who gave a sincere apology and explained that he was training new staff. He thanked...

I've stayed in several rooms in the main building and 3 different cottages at the Inn over the years. Each one is wonderful! All of them are romantic peaceful and quiet. The French Maid's cottage, any of the stone cottages, and the Gardener's cottage is spectacular. The food has always been mouthwatering and the meals are consistent with the seasons....

We met friends who had stayed here many times. It was the first time for us and we will definitely be back. Our room was in the main building and very nice. We also saw a cottage...those are amazing.
