I hate to leave a negative review because I believe the hosts are doing the best they can do. They seemed to be lovely people, along with the man who helps out (he was so friendly and helpful!) My overall experience was negative, in part, because the reviews held it in such high reguard. So to arrive and find the inn in the state it was in, was a little shocking. We were alone when we checked in, the only guests. It was very quiet until the wind storm started. It was crazy! The wind just whips through the canyon between the mountains. We lacked any temperature control of the room so we had the window open and therefore couldn't sleep. It was kind of cool at the same time. Window sills, behind doors and a couple other spots featured dead bugs. The room was not filthy but dead bugs showed me this room hadn't been thoroughly cleaned anytime recently. Which brings me to my next point: nothing has been done to improve this place recently. The deck with a hottub (which is noisy if you're sitting outside and want to enjoy quiet) is in great disrepair. You can actually see the decking under the hottub caving in ! There is debris scattered all over that side of the house. Definitely kept us from using the hottub. This place was probably at its peak about 10 years ago. It needs a lot of TLC to get it back to the place that deserves the attention it's getting in reviews. We drove our van and the drive up to the inn was precarious at best! Bring your 4x4! I made my husband drive it each time because it was scary! The Inn says that children are not allowed and yet there were several families with children staying there. We love children but our intention was to have a break from them (we left 6 at home!). We appreciate fine dining and that was another reason we were excited to stay here... and another reason we were disappointed. The food is fine. It was not exceptional. There was plenty of it. I'm sorry but I prepare better food myself. We are used to another level of food. It was nice that they sold wine and beer! There is nothing close by so we fould that very convenient. Speaking of nothing close by, unless you fish, if you want to do anything prepare to travel great lengths. The amount of time we spent driving to attrations made our trip feel stressful. Our host did, however, provide us with a map and a route to see some amazing things! There is one nice hike you can take from the inn. That was a major highlight of our stay. Finally, our last day we made a reservation for dinner and then went rock climbing. YOU SHOULD GO! Don't miss an opportunity to go rock climbing while visiting this area. We couldn't make it back for dinner and cancelled our reservation. They still charged us for it on our final bill, which I'm sure they didn't mean to. One more thing, you can hear your neighbor's conversations through the wall. Awkward! I'm not suggesting you shouldn't visit. Just temper your expectations. This is a run-down, past-it's-prime, average inn with nice hosts in a beautiful location that is hard to get to. The food is fine but not the "fine dining" that is advertised.…
If you want to get unplugged in a place that completely welcomes you like you were family this is the place for you! Ed is quite the chef and Carol is quite the homemaker with her freshly made cookies. We had an awesome room even though we didn’t have a view of the mountain. It definitely didn’t matter. I can’t tell you how rejuvenated we were after this visit. We are already booked for October and can’t wait to go back. Don’t worry if you can’t completely unplug, they do have WiFi!
I took my girlfriend to this place for a valentine's getaway, the service is incredible. The room was clean and orderly when we walked in, the common areas had plenty to do. The view was amazing, and would have been even better in the fall. Their food was to die for. I would highly recommend the fine dining option, it is well worth it. The owners are very kind and were a pleasure to talk to.
The North Fork Mountain Inn is a beautiful place to visit. Me and my girlfriend had an amazing time at the Inn, staying for 2 nights. This is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. Ed, the innkeeper, was incredibly helpful and accommodating to us. Our first night, we had massages which I highly recommend to those looking to stay here...the massage therapist is great at what he does. Ed cooked every meal for us which were all outstanding, he is a very good cook as well as host. The second night we were there, Ed (also a sommelier) hosted a wine tasting which was so much fun and a very knowledgeable experience. I cannot recommend this place enough it was so enjoyable. Great views, great food, and an overall wonderful time.
If you ever found yourself wanting to experience a little piece of a true mountain paradise, you have to join Ed and Carroll in their beautiful Inn. Have to say I found this place on TripAdvisor, not being sure if it’s exact location with respect to my personal business in the lower valley. I am absolutely beside myself having to leave their Inn. The scenery, the wine, the exceptional dining, conversation... what else can I say. Go Go Go. You will never regret it.
