Stopped in before heading home after a girls trip of wineries & distilleries. Quiet, calm, & loved the step-back-in-time feel. The breakfast was wonderful... Locally sourced products, huge portions, & great taste, all at a reasonable price. Truly a great way to end our trip!

This is the third year we have eaten Thanksgiving Dinner at Story Inn. Each year it goes up in price and smaller portions. We love the atmosphere and the drive through the beautiful countryside. And the food was good but very overpriced. $35.00 per person....More
