The restaurant at the Gatsby was way overpriced, however Artisans Lane was great, local artists have little shops all along the back of the mansion.

Our stay at the Gatsby Mansion was exceptional, the staff went above and beyond making us feel like royalty on our 40th anniversary. Thank you to one and all, especially Kristen for a wonderful stay.
