Comus Inn Update

Miata Girl | Nov 15, 2004 11:59 AM

Hoping that the Comus Inn was open, as we had heard, we put the top down and headed for Comus on Saturday. The drive was beautiful, and upon arrival at the Inn we were greeted by one of the four patners. The Inn is in the final stages of renovation, staff is now being hired, and training will begin in a week or so.

The renovations are very well done, and 2000 s.f. have been added to the kitchen, which has been re-equiped with all new fixtures and appliances.

Bottom line - the Inn should be open by mid December!

Reviews upon opening would be appreciated.

Here is a blurb on the Inn from a nearby B&B website:

Opening Soon

“Country elegant” is the term chef and part-owner Patrick Shrader uses to describe the new restaurant in a very old building, The Comus Inn. Closed for renovations, the inn opens soon, Shrader said.

Located on Route 109, The Comus Inn has a view unmatched in the Washington DC area. Spread beneath the dining room windows is a lovely garden with a charming pond and a dovecoat (with doves). Beyond the close view are fields of grain and hay, a vineyard and our mountain, Sugarloaf, looking so close you want to hug it. If diners are lucky, they may see the sun set behind the mountain, casting a red glow and turning the sky pink.

With rigorous attention to historic preservation, the inn is completely renovated with new additions and handicap-friendly ramps. Teak bars, carved by a local artist, glass etched with the inn logo, crown molding and luxurious restrooms add to the ambience. As in previous years, part of the original log wall remains revealed.

But most restaurant goers want good food and fine wines as well as graciousness. Shrader assures me you will be delighted with his magnificent food and dignified, professional service. Call for reservations, 301-349-5100."
