No one would argue that this is not a pretty place, and I don't mean to be mean, but, practically speaking, there are some things you may want to think about before deciding to stay here. My husband and I got so excited about how charming and romantic the pictures of the chapel were that we failed to consider some things we should have. Though beautiful, it's extremely dark inside with hardly any windows for natural light and skimpy electrical lighting. Without any significant windows, you can't enjoy the view of the grounds. The surfaces in the bedroom are cold and hard and it isn't comfortable to walk barefoot on the floor. The bathroom feels like a closet and, to be honest, it's a little creepy to use the toilet "box" or the tiny shower with its mildewed shower curtain blowing around your legs. Though there is a small living room, the furniture is low, small, Victorian-like, and not comfortable to relax on. We normally select non-chain, not necessarily luxurious accommodations (cottages, apartments, B&B's, etc.) with a local flavor when we travel, so I'm not being the ugly American here, but depending on how long you are staying, you might want to think about the things that would make you comfortable, or uncomfortable, on your vacation.
