History and Overview of a Historic Inn

The Pine Crest Inn was constructed in 1906, and has welcomed guests since equestrian Carter Brown converted it to an inn in 1917. It was added to the the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Today, the Inn features 35 comfortable guest rooms; four in the main Pine Crest Lodge and the remainder in ten outlying cottages. Original buildings, including a 240-year-old log cabin, a woodcutter cottage, and a stone cottage, add to its charm.

Reminiscent of an English country inn, the Pine Crest's comforts include supple leather chairs, richly upholstered furnishings, lovely stone fireplaces and natural hardwood floors. Each of our guest rooms have full, private baths, flat screen TVs and complimentary wi-fi high speed internet.  Many of our rooms feature spacious sitting areas, cozy fireplaces, jetted tubs and VCR/DVD players. The Inn also offers an extensive library of books and DVDs to peruse at your leisure.

The culinary team at Carter's Tavern and Wine Cellar cater to your group's schedule and dining needs. Fresh flowers, candlelight, and a crackling fire complete the English Tavern setting and enhance your dining enjoyment. Our Executive Chef prepares inspired cuisine from the freshest ingredients; a feast for both the eye and palate. Our award-winning wine collection offers a variety of select vintages to perfectly compliment your meal.
