      Was originally booked for the Monday and it was calling for rain all day. Inga emailed and offered to change the reservation to the next day. This was an amazing gesture and it was greatly appreciated. Had lots of fun

      Property is wooded and well kept. We enjoyed the walking through the woods and nearby area. Lots of areas to sit and reflect. Food was absolutely excellent. You will not go hungry here! Kevin, you did an amazing jog, thank you!

      Loved the setting. The dining experience was not so good. Could be awesome if they had better trained staff in the dining department. They are trying.

      The natural beauty of the area and the country setting was carried into the hotel. The staff were attentive courteous and polite. They always carried a smile and we're eager to ensure that you had everything you needed and that you were comfortable. The food was fresh and The Taste was excellent. We are already planning our next visit. Each season offers something different to the visitors of Westwind Inn. Peaceful and Serene I came home feeling refreshed

      It’s a cozy quiet place with a great view. The staff turned on our room fireplace place so it would be warm and cozy once we checked in which was thoughtful. We will definitely plan another trip here.

      Beautiful surroundings and interior. In the room the mattress was very uncomfortable and the balcony needed a good cleaning. Staff were pleasant.

      it has been the 5th or 6th time I spent a few days with my husband at the Inn - with 10 years between the last 2x. And it changed only a bit in those 10 years. Something to the better, most not. About 15, 16 years ago it has been an fab. Inn with amazing food delivered by a very talented lady chef. The gardens were beautiful and hammocks and resting places everywhere. Even gas powered mosquitos traps hidden to deep those pesky bug at bay. The tables had cloth coverings and menu a 6 course dinner. Over the years it went quite down hill: the gardens were neglected, the traps disappeared and so did opulent menu (still very delicious). I came back because of the stunning setting of the Inn. We had a renovated room which actually look the same except the worn carpet was gone. The rooms are small but sufficient, the interior is supposed to look like it would in the bygone old cabin era. Our bathroom was tired but surprisingly roomy, but worn. And I could say 'Hello' to the very old TV about that 10 years ago people complained. It's a fine line between 'shabby chic' and shabby.

      Hotel is tired. Staff were lovely but clearly overwhelmed or undertrained. Checkout staff was very rude to a coworker which is a real turnoff. Food was excellent and portions were huge.
