Inn at Pound Ridge Update


This just in: No brides were disappointed by the sale of the Inn at Pound Ridge.
I spoke with Dorothy Treyball today, who tells me there was only one bride who had planned a wedding for September.
“I gave them several months when I figured out that the buyers weren’t going to do it for her,� Treyball said by phone from her home in Connecticut. “I let her know and returned the deposiits.� The bride had insurance, too, Treyball says.
After we cleared that up, I asked Treyball about her decision to sell after 18 years at the Inn at Pound Ridge.
“I’m getting older,� she said. “I’m in my 70s and I needed to retire. I have a bad knee and the stairs were hard on me. I did enjoy it while I was there, but decided to give it up.�
Her son, Brendan, who was the chef, is enjoying a vacation out west on his Harley, but when he returns, he’d like to start catering house parties and weddings. Dorothy says she’ll have him call me when he gets back.
