"The rave reviews are all accurate - I booked a stay at The Reluctant Panther and was not disappointed. This was a beautiful place to spend a weekend and every detail of our stay was wonderful. Upon check in, we were upgraded to a junior suite, which included a beautiful bedroom with a gas fireplace, a small sitting room, and -- best of all -- a gorgeous bathroom with another gas fireplace! Truly indulgent! Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the whirlpool tub with a fire going. The stay included a full cooked breakfast served in the beautiful dining room with views of Mt. Equinox and more fireplaces. The breakfast was delicious and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Everything from the furnishings to the bedding was first rate. The inn is in a good location surrounded by historic homes, far enough away from the commercial areas to be quiet but close enough to walk into town if you like (which we did). We just loved the Reluctant Panther and will definitely be coming back."
