My husband and I stayed for a long weekend at The Inn at Irish Hallow and loved it. We stayed in The Stonewood Cottage. It was perfectly decorated for Christmas, Pandora music available throughout the cottage, unlimited wood for the cozy fireplace which you could enjoy from the sitting room or the bedroom, and all the small details which keep...

We stayed in The French Maids Cottage in August and there were webs all over the cottage. We had to wait for them to finish cleaning the room so finding webs and spiders in the shower, tub and on most of the light fixtures shows poor housekeeping. We could not even sit outside in the screened porch due to all...

I have said it before, but as we continue to travel we continue to find unique places obviously. This bed and breakfast is undoubtedly the most unique place we have stayed yet, and it is a new favorite that we will certainly return to. Rooms, grounds, and trails are meticulous. We stayed in the gardeners cottage. Breakfast is amazing and...

I always joke about our quest for luxury when we travel. We finally found it at Irish Hollow. They have absolutely nailed casual elegance. The owners and staff were so nice and fun to talk to. 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...

Coming from a busy winter season in Argentina, I was desperately looking for some vacation and time off in nature, peace and beauty. 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...

My fiancee and I spent 3 days for our anniversary. We had a guest room at the Main Inn, which was very cozy, peaceful, and well-decorated. Unfortunately, it wasn't as clean as we would have liked. I was able to discuss this with the owner, who gave a sincere apology and explained that he was training new staff. He thanked...

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in June of 2016 for a baby moon before our first child. The Inn at Irish Hollow was a wonderful retreat. The surrounding area is so beautiful and peaceful.
