"I love biking through Saxtons River Village and Grafton Ponds the scenery is fantastic! Launching from The Saxtons River Inn makes it all easy. There are historic homes, farms and wildlife everywhere. The birdwatching is the tops! It's like biking through a postcard."

"I love coming to The Saxtons River Inn because it has a real village. Both the town and the inn are unpretentious. When I am walking in the morning I love seeing people going off to work, others walking their dogs, and mothers pushing baby carriages, and at noon seeing pickups in front of the Village Market as locals stop in to get their lunch at the deli. I like sitting on the inn porch and letting the tensions of the city unwind, and then when I am ready I can head out in any direction and find interesting things to do."
