Together, they continue to welcome guests who appreciate the very personal experience, excellent cooking and thoughtful service, which are the hallmarks of The Peat Inn. Additionally, in The Residence, their eight suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table can extend into an overnight stay.
