I was at the Kilpatrick/Johnson wedding, 8/22/15, as an invited guest & part of the wedding party. I was privy to the written flow sheet/schedule. 1) Per K/J's written schedule - 'dinner to start at 7:10 pm. Cake cutting 8:20'. Plain and simple - dinner was not served on time. It was well after 8 pm before my table was... More

Patti, thanks for this review...We do not feel it is presented with the correct information. Our dinner service was started on time and the hot entree was served on time. There was absolutely no reason for the food to be delayed. For each course we waited until your guests had finished eating and then cleared the tables. The guests did... More

We rented the Chef's cottage for a week to help out our daughter and the new baby in their family. It was clean and attractive with a bedroom and large kitchen/sitting room. The owner was friendly and helpful, even during the power outage caused by a huge windstorm. The setting was quiet, with a lovely garden. It might be a... More

We arrived in time to settle in and then headed straight to the French Cuisine cooking class. It was a new experience, and one we're so glad we tried. The class was so much fun and gave us an opportunity to meet and dine with new friends. Chef Philip was clearly a professional, but knew how to keep things light... More

This is a unique destination. The number of rooms is small, but the building is rather large to accommodate the cooking class and the personnel residence of Nancy, the proprietor. We reserved the Honeymoon suite for the King bed. Very unique and a huge bathroom with Jacuzzi and large shower, liked the heated tile floor. While we are geezers, this... More
