We planned on eating at another place since we had 6 kids with us but ended up here because that other restaurant was closed due to no a/c. We ate outside on the porch and it was wonderful. I didn't make it inside to see...More

We rarely eat at The Big Tree Inn because we find it too expensive. The Inn is a step back in time. I walked through the lobby yesterday and the old (very old) furniture was impressive, but smelled musty. The Ladies room, however, was recently...More

The food was wonderful, nicely prepared and presented. Bar is a real gem. This 19th century inn has been restored to its former glory. Outside seating as well as Victorian dining rooms inside.

What a little gem in this college town that reminds me of another; Williamstown, Mass. This restaurant is such a find with all of the history & atmosphere of any fine dining spot even in New England. We entered into a small intimate foyer to...More

Worth a visit just to see the bar, the food is excellent and the service very good. A destination, go to spot for the entire region. The holiday specials, like a full turkey dinner, are the best values.
