Restored Farmhouse on 200 Beautiful Acres

Forget your toothbrush? We have one. Need directions? We know how to get there. Want the scoop on a restaurant? We have most likely eaten there.

Beautiful home away from home
We had a wonderful time staying at the Solitude Inn for New Years weekend. Joe and Monica were wonderful hosts, they checked us in upon arrival and walked us through the house. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable to stay in. We enjoyed the walking trail right on the property and even got to see a bit of snow. We are hoping to come back in the Summer and revisit. Thanks for a wonderful New Years!
Thank you, Sara and Greg. We appreciate your taking the time to write such a lovely review.
Come back in the summer for the "green season," when the fields and forests are emerald, the hiking trail is mossy, and the gardens are producing. Or take one of the boats out on the gigantic expanse of the Cannonsville Reservoir. Or sit on the porch and do nothing!

Always a pleasure
Great seeing Monica and Joe again! Will be back next year!
Thank you, Jared. It was a pleasure to have hosted you and Milo again.
We look forward to seeing you next year!

My family and I look forward to returning.
Thank you, Chris. We enjoyed meeting you and D and C and C and hope that you will consider The Solitude Inn when you are in the area again.
Best, Monica & Joe (and Duke)
This was the most perfect find ever. The house was absolutely beautiful. The owners clearly painstakingly thought out every possible need a guest may have, and made sure it was provided. The home is beautifully decorated, comfortable and squeaky clean. The views are breathtaking. The owners are awesome and have mastered the delicate balance of making themselves available yet giving guests their privacy. I do not cry at weddings or funerals but nearly did when it was time to leave this gem. PERFECT!!!
Thank you, Wilson, for such a glowing review. We are humbled by your kind words. We hope to be able to sit on the porch and chat again sometime with you, Tim, and Juan.
Peace and plenty,
Monica & Joe
And Duke says "WOOF!" to Fancy. /(^.^)/
Could not ask for anything more!!
Thank You - Thank You - Thank You !
Monica , Joe and Duke your house is beautiful, Clean and has all the accomedations of home. From the grilling tools to the variety coffees in the draw to the fresh Basilico and parsley on the front porch!
It was such a pleasant surprise to actually get more than what you would have expected! Can’t wait to come again.

Dear Margaret, Nino, Julia, Theresa Jr., and Theresa Sr. -
Thank you for your wonderful review. It was our pleasure to have hosted you and hope you can come back to stay again. We appreciate how you treated the house as if it were your own.
Thanks, too, for the Gargiulo's wine - Delish! Next time, maybe we can all have a glass together.
If we're ever in Coney Island, we look forward to seeing you at Gargiulo's, your beautiful restaurant!

Beautiful and Peaceful
This home is gorgeous and the location was just what we needed--secluded and quiet, but with several small villages and quaint restaurants within 15 miles in either direction when we wanted to venture into civilization. Monica and Joe take pride in their home and property and we could not want for anything during our stay. We only wish we had one more day to enjoy the canoes that they provided. Our schedule of events in Bainbridge only 30 minutes away would not allow us any time on the reservoir, but it sure was beautiful to drive past. Our children loved the layout of the house just as much as we did and kept exclaiming how much they wanted to live there. The beds were very comfortable and the upstairs foyer and outdoor balcony area were my favorite areas to hang out with some coffee and wine. There was an eclectic collection of books that I was quite jealous of and can only hope to expand upon my own collection after studying the book case. All of the amenities and high end appliances worked perfectly! The furniture was beautiful and no small detail was overlooked. There were plenty of dishes, utensils, every sort of wine glass, and an abundance of linens. The small little touches of extra supplies in the kitchen and laundry area were life savers when I forgot to bring spices for cooking and detergent for washing clothes. We found everything simple and easy to use as well. We will miss Duke, the owners' dog, who came to visit from up the road (no worries...there's no vehicle traffic on this private road) a few times while we were outside. He enjoyed resting on the porch and my boys gave him plenty of hugs and a few treats (on the counter next to the human treats also provided by Monica and Joe). My husband enjoyed learning about the area and talking to Joe about the renovations that they completed to make this home what it is today. We found the binder of pictures and details about each step of the process very informative. We will be talking about this home and our experiences for years to come! Thank you Monica and Joe for loving your home and sharing it with us!
Dear Kelly, Jeff, Connor, Wyatt, and Jordan,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a beautiful review. We are humbled by your words and sentiments. An indelible memory of your stay is Wyatt jumping on "his" bed and coming to tell me, "I love this place!" It made my heart soar like a hawk.
We know that it is a long drive from your house to The Solitude Inn, but we would love to host you again should you be in this area. The canoes are waiting.... Plus, we may need some electrical work done ;<} and we never did have that glass of wine!
Best regards, Monica & Joe
Duke says ARF! /(^.^)/
