"This is our third visit to the Historic Smithtown Inn with many more visits to come. We were made to feel like family! Beautiful, restful accommodations and amazing breakfasts. Loved the courtyard, a perfect place to sit and relax. We had live music to enjoy on Friday night. Rebecca is a gracious innkeeper as well as a phenomenal cook. Can't wait to come back!"
"Our third time at the Historic Smithton Inn was the just as great as the first and second time. The room was spotless, quite and calming. Rebecca was a charming hostess, making sure every thing was perfect. Our breakfast both days was delicious and more than enough to start our day right. The coffee mug warming tray was a great idea, we want one! Thank you and your staff for a wonderful stay."
"Rebecca and Dave have considered every detail! The rooms have everything one would need for a very comfortable and gracious stay - right down to a flashlight if there was an emergency need for one. Breakfast - simply amazing. You will not go away hungry unless you choose to. The addition of the Weathered Vineyards Wine Tasting Room with live music on Friday & Saturday nights is outstanding. The wine is delightful and the service is excellent. Making new friends was a delight. And then the Inn itself from 1763. A beautiful building and well cared for. Thanks for a great getaway!"
