Book Your Stay At The Hazelnut Inn

Our first room to open will be the North Star suite at the Hazelnut Inn!

According to local legend, the North Star was once the home of Ms. Temperance Longbottom. Best know as the captain of the privateer ship, Avellana (guests will sleep in the captain’s quarters), Ms. Longbottom travelled the seven seas gathering wonders and relics from the mythical corners of the world (she may even have visited Atlantis) and the North Star and its attached private garden are both filled with ancient statues and arcane paraphernalia. Temperance's ramshackle property is perfect for couples looking for a one-of-a-kind romantic hideaway.

Hazelnut Inn

An Extraordinary Boutique Hotel


Make your first days of wedded bliss even more memorable with a honeymoon in this once in a lifetime boutique hotel. Choose from the North Star, a whimsical explorer's home, the Under Hill, a fantastic underground cottage, or start your happily ever after in the Copper Crown, a charming little castle.

A stay at the Hazelnut Inn is an experience unlike any other!

North Star Square

The North Star was once the home of an eccentric explorer, who gathered architectural artifacts from every mythical corner of the world and built her estate around them.

Under Hill Square

By all accounts, the Under Hill has been in old Mister Burrows' family for generations untold. Tucked away behind the walls of its own private garden, this little gem is as grand as they come. 

Copper Crown Square

According to legend, the Copper Crown is the ancestral home of an ancient line of aristocrats who were renowned orchardists, dragon hunters and even (in one telling) dragon riders.

The Copper Crown Suite

The Fairytale...

Some folks say that the Copper Crown is the ancestral home of the 'Crown' family, an ancient line of aristocrats. Apparently, no less than 11 princesses lived here at one time or another. Other folks claim that it was the 'Copper' family that built this little castle after making their fortune farming hazelnuts or tarragon or some such.

Both versions of the story, however agree that whether they were princesses or paupers, the family was famous for having the curious hobby of dragon hunting. Whether they ever caught a dragon is, of course,  up for debate. However, at least one local claims that their great-great-aunt-whats-her-face once spotted a person riding across the sky on the back of a "giant lizard."

Regardless, the Copper Crown takes its name from the motto found on the coat of arms which reads "coronati apud aercus" or "crowned with copper." Our family acquired this magnificent manor some time ago and we have been diligently restoring its former glory for our guests to enjoy.

The Truth...

The Copper Crown Suite will be our final room to open and we are really looking forward to seeing it completed!

The Under Hill Suite

The Myth...

The Under Hill is the residence of one P. H. Burrows. Indeed, it seems like Mr. Burrows' family has lived there for time out of mind.

Carved into the lintel above the front door is the phrase:

eɪ hoʊl ɪn ðə ɡraʊnd miːnz ˈkʌmfət

Which, roughly translated, means something like  "a comfortable hole in the ground" and the Under Hill really is a grand little gem, stuffed full with the little comforts of home.

Now, old Mr. Burrows has gone away on an adventure (or some such nonsense) and while he is away he has asked us to look after the place for him. Seeing as it is the perfect spot for visitors, you are more than welcome to stay for a night or two. We are sure Mr. Burrows wouldn't mind!

The Truth...

The Under Hill Suite will be the Hazelnut Inn's second room to open. And importantly, because our other two suites have quite a few stairs, we designed the Under Hill specifically to facilitate easy wheelchair access. We can hardly wait to open this room!

You can see the entrance to the Under Hill tucked between the Copper Crown and the North Star.
