Nice Getaway with Conditions

We had a mediocre visit just before the new year weekend. The train car we stayed in was nicely decorated but cramped, even for two. It is a caboose. We found the dining car wasn't cramped, but the prices were a little high for the quality of the food delivered. The biggest disappointment was the xc trails were not groomed. The 'groomer' was grumpy and didn't indicate when they would be skiiable. So we left since there wasn't all that much to do there other than sit in the lounge, the bar or eat more in the dining car.

Great winter getaway place. No cell phone service and limited wi-fi. Not much to do if you don't cross country ski, the ski trails are nice. The restaurant is pricey, but the food is great. Personnel there are extremely nice. We had a great time, with one complaint. Our "caboose" was supposed to sleep 4, but the double bed was at the top of a 10 foot ladder and had about one foot of clearance. Not usable for adults and that should have been made clear in all their literature. There were other issues with the caboose -- cabinets that wouldn't open, fridge freezer that couldn't open.

Annual visit

We stayed a couple of nights in the X215 caboose which is our lodging of choice in the winter. As per usual we had the whole area to ourselves as the adjacent buildings were not occupied. Very quiet and peaceful. The X215 was cozy and comfortable especially with having a fireplace in the bedroom. It hit -2 one morning and the caboose stayed comfortable. Staff seemed short but these days every place is having problems hiring. All personnel who we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. They do a super job of grooming trails for cross country and we did use the upper Essex road on the opposite side of the tracks. Amtrak passes by twice a day and we enjoy seeing the train. Meals were excellent and I'll review under Dining Car restaurant.

We have just returned from 8 nights at the Inn. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary a year and a half late due to Covid. Everything and everyone at the inn were fabulous. The food was excellent and the servers were outstanding. They became friends over the course of our stay. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful, and kept the fire going each day. The housekeeping staff kept the place clean and safe. Over 25 inches of snow fell during our week creating a winter wonderland! We walked, skied, read, and ate. Everyone helped us to have a memorable and wonderful celebration. Thank you for hosting us!

We ate most of our meals in the Dining CarRestaurant and they were wonderful. The food items were fresh and prepared at the time of order. The waiter/waitress service was very good as well. We would certainly stay there again. They are also numeerous trails one can use as well.
