I do quite a bit of traveling for work and have stayed at many of the top hotels/inns around the globe. So when it comes to accommodations, I tend to be very picky about where I stay. I had the privilege of staying at the Snapdragon Inn this past weekend and it was one of the best places I’ve ever been. Once you enter the inn, you instantly realize how special the place is. I was warmly greeted by the receptionist and was given a brief tour of the main floor. The lady described the inn’s rich history (formerly owned by Max Perkins, who worked closely with Hemmingway, Fitzgerald, and others), while showcasing their impressive library. Outside the library is a covered porch overlooking an immaculate garden; a perfect sitting area to relax and unwind. I really appreciated the warm welcome and the attention to detail evident throughout.
My room (room #1) was equally impressive. It was generously sized and it was spotless. I thought the copy of Farewell to Arms (which happens to be one of my favorite books) on the desk was a very nice touch. The bed was to die for…. It made the Westin’s “heavenly” bed look quite ordinary. I can’t remember the last time I had such a good night’s sleep. The bathroom was pristine, with radiant floor heating and an amazing shower. The L’Occitane bath products were also a nice a touch.
Overall, I absolutely loved my stay at the Snapdragon Inn. It’s the only place I’ll stay when visiting the Windsor/Woodstock area. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to treat themselves for a weekend/vacation.
