"Kristen and Phil gave me and my girlfriend the most relaxing experience I could have asked for.  I looked for a place to stay that didn't have the feel of the same old hotels with loud TVs in the next room, and Mount Welby was it.  The pureness of silence, broken only by the sounds of the mountain will be your lullaby as you fall asleep having had the best day possible.  The area has everything for adults or family alike." - Mark I.


The House and Gardens

Black Dog Farm Inn at Mount Welby is a very special place, and when you walk through the doors, you’ll immediately know why. Step back in time as you tread on original wood floors and antique rugs. All of the rooms feature antique furnishings put together with the finest sense of simplicity and elegance. The home is surrounded by beautiful gardens and natural meadows, home to our resident goats and horses.  Mount Welby is great for team retreats and other special events such as weddings and anniversaries.

 

Kitchen

The eat-in kitchen features two walls of French doors that offer views of the garden and provide plenty of natural light. An L-shaped island with granite countertops houses the oven, range, sink and dishwasher, while the refrigerator with ice maker and extensive cabinets line the walls. Just over the counter is a long rectangular table that seats ten, perfect for morning coffee and casual dinners. 

Living Room

The large living room is an open space with great views, a perfect place for the family to convene together. A stone fireplace with crisp white mantle is the centerpiece of the room, with deep scarlet walls, wooden floors, and a lovely antique rug contributing to the warmth of the room.  Relax in the comfortable seating area in front of the fireplace, or turn on the large flat-screen television and enjoy a movie. 

Dining Room

The dining room has a large table that seats ten guests comfortably. Butter cream yellow walls, a stone fireplace, and an antique hutch and accessories make this room a fine place to enjoy a meal.
