Woody Hill Bed & Breakfast
149 South Woody Hill Road
What we liked most: The total-immersion open-hearth cooking and dining experience.
What we liked least: We missed a hair dryer and a daily newspaper.
What surprised us: That this Colonial farmhouse with its period decor was built in the last 30 years.
You know you're at the Woody Hill B&B when . . . you have a new appreciation for your microwave oven as you leave.
Rates: Doubles $110-$150, including breakfast. Hearth-cooking lessons an additional $30 per person for inn guests, $40 per person for visitors.
