Very Quaint A review of The Mast Farm Inn
My wife and I just recently stayed in Cousin Sarah's Room at the Mast Farm Inn. Being that we both had graduated from College at ASU in Boone, we were kinda familiar with the area. We stayed there for our one year wedding anniversary. It was so neat, and very quaint. The buildings are very old, but restorations have been successful and the facilities are in great shape. It was so relaxing up there. One of the things we didn't like was the fact that there was no choice for breakfast. We got what we were served. And most of the time it was this very gourmet-style food where we didn't really know what we were eating by the description. The dinner menu is limited as well, and very high priced. None of the rooms are equipped with a TV which would have been nice for the evenings when alot of things have closed and there isn't much to do at the inn itself. No phones are provided either in the rooms (which doesn't bother me). If you need to use the phone, the innkeepers will allow you to use the one behind the checkin desk. Otherwise, we had a nice, relaxing stay. The prices were kinda high ($225 per night) since we went in October. Requirement is that you have to stay a minimum 3 nights during the month of October. That kinda stunk, but we had a gift certificate that covered some of the cost. If you are looking for a place where you want to enjoy gourmet food by a professional chef, rest, not have much to do or any interruptions, this is the place for you. One more thing, the rooms only lock from the inside. If you leave during the day, your room will remain unlocked so take anything that may have some value with you while you are out (or just leave them at home altogether).
