Winter Clove is a unique place that is not for everyone. If you are looking for the Waldorf Hotel or an upscale hotel experience, this is not for you. If you want to meet people, relax and enjoy the surroundings in a comfy setting away from it all, Winter Clove is ideal.
Dinner is at 6PM and we arrived from NYC at 8PM due to traffic. We called and related our tale of woe and Gale, our waitress was waiting for us with hot meals put aside for us and a smile on her face!!!! What a welcome relief after a 3 hour trip turned into 5+ and nerves on edge.
Some of our party stayed on the second floor. Large staircase to be considered if you are disabled or have lots of luggage but this was not a problem for us. Comfy rooms and good showers. Our room was over the kitchen which got loud in the morning. Wall A/C was a bit loud but needed in heat. The top floor had two meeting/living rooms surrounded by hotel rooms which would be ideal for larger groups not minding the staircase. No elevators but you wouldn't want to spoil the charm of this 150+ year old inn.
Others in our group stayed in the lodge down the driveway which was IDEAL for the kids in the group. We used this as a gathering place as there was a common living room with a small frig!
Grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Did not use the pools but they appeared fine!
Food at ALL meals was plentiful, tasty, and above par!
For those looking for activities nearby, ask at the desk. They are more than happy to give you ideas. We chose the garlic festival and was happy with the choice. We also went apple picking hearby. Enroute home we stopped at Woodstock and spent a few hours there.
Relaxing front porch with rockers and plenty of room to sit with or without anyone nearby. Ample parking.
German bakery in the area is a MUST ~ the pastery delights are unparralled!
Staff is friendly and accommodating. Gift shop is a must. Plenty of unusual country crafts all reasonably priced. Desk clerk also offered an assortment of her handmade jewelry at the welcome desk which I love to peruse and buy!
Skip the trivia game - questions do NOT run the gamut of trivia games - rather the interests of the presenter.
Second stay there and have booked for next year already.
