A book comes alive
Dec 06, 2013 by: Brigitte K from Wilmington, North Carolina, United States
This is the second time this year that I have been wined and dined at the Inn. Went in January with one friend when we found out that the Inn BoonsBoro (which goes along with Nora Roberts trilogy) really existed. The staff is outstanding, the breakfast is awesome and the accommodations are superb. The pictures on the website only are half of what the rooms really look like....Nora has spared no detail. When I showed pics to my friends and talked about the Inn, the Fit Center, etc., my friends from Wilmington had to do a road trip. Looking forward to going again and taking a group of friends from Long Island. Also the bakery next to the Inn has great pastry and soup and Vesta has yummy pizza and salads. You won't go away hungry. I had a cooler and took some of the food home to enjoy the next day.

the inn couldn't be any more 5 star, service, accommodations and every detail were impeccable. there were many expensive touches, paintings, knick-knacks and ambiance, were beyond any place I had ever visited. I will say I felt we were in lockdown. no one was allowed to visit us in our room, we were staying in the area to visit my husband's sister and her husband, they came with us to the checkin, we were told they weren't allowed upstairs to see the room, reason being we were in a private home. Aren't all B&B's private homes? I must be honest, I felt very uncomfortable from that point on, couldn't fully enjoy such a beautiful place. when I provided the feedback, I never received a response. I respect that the inn is owned by a celebrity, but in the spirit of innkeeping, I think guests need to be afforded a little more latitude.
Planning my Return as I Write

As a mucho macho man, I didn't do B & B's. But I would return here yearly. My Wife and I stayed in Wellsley and Buttercup on the 3rd floor and loved every aspect of it. Lynn greeted us and gave us a tour. Our room included a heated bathroom floor, heated toilet seat, heated towel rack, copper tub, 7 nozzle jet shower! and great big bed, along with an in-room gas fireplace in the bedroom. We also had the place to ourselves the first night and had wine and cheeze delivered to our room. The breakfasts were supurb and the Chef a friendly guy. I would have liked to meet Nora, but understandibly she was not on site this day. We visited her bookstore and gift shop next door, her micro beer pub across the street and her bakery next door. Showed my Wife the Antietam Battlefield on day 1 and went wine tasting to Middleburg on day 2. As MacArthur said: "I shall (hope to) return." There were no negatives to this experience and would like to return yearly, God willing. Well done Nora, Karen, Lynn

One word can sum up our trip pretty well....wow! This inn is wonderful, partly because of the décor and style and partly because of the great people who work there. Luxurious comfort was the overriding feel. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Lynn, we felt welcome. We were shown where to find snacks, beverages, books, games, and movies before being taken to our room. We had booked Titania and Oberon, which was just lovely. Lynn or one of the others was always available if needed. Our room was, as I said, lovely. The bed was beautifully draped in linen and was very comfortable. The bathroom...oh my! The tub was enormous! When I sat in it the edge was just at eye level-plenty deep for a good soak. It's a good thing there was a step provided to get in and out! The shower was fantastic with its multiple jets. Having a towel warmer was a great touch, and the towels were incredibly soft and cuddly. It's the little details like the thick and soft towels and toilet paper that really let you know they want you to feel pampered. Our only wish for the room would have been to have a choice to have a feather pillow (or something soft) instead, but it certainly didn't ruin our experience. The wine and cheese hour was delightful. We looked through a book with pictures from the renovation. It's amazing all the work that was done and how far the inn has come. Overall, if you're a Nora Roberts fan you'll probably already love this place, but even if you've never read a book, you'll fall in love with Inn Boonsboro.

My girlfriend and I flew in for her birthday. The Inn keepers Lynn and her husband were fantastic. We felt like we were staying with a family member. The breakfast was gourmet and creative. Lynn always had snacks with all types of coffee or tea. I highly recommend this Inn. Jorge Miami, Florida
