Stayed here for 1 night and an afternoon on a business trip but what an amazing time I had even in that short amount of time! From the minute you turn down the tree lined drive, you feel like you've stepped back in time and into a relaxed piece of heaven in the south. The staff were friendly and helpful, the accommodations beautiful and the spa was wonderful! We were given a ruins tour with a history of the estate. Had an excellent dinner of rainbow trout with butternut squash risotto and bread pudding for dessert at the Woodlands Grill. The bed was so comfortable I skipped my plan of a morning walk, snoozed for a bit and then enjoyed a cup of cocoa on the porch swing of our cottage. Ordered room service for breakfast in my large but cozy bedroom. Breakfast potato pancakes were yummy!
Later in the afternoon we returned for lunch before heading over to the spa for treatments. I had selected the Tiger Shell Massage which was really nice and then headed out to sit by the beautiful pool. We were all very sad to have to leave so soon. I truly plan to return when I can stay longer and enjoy the other amenities like the miles of walking trails, gorgeous golf course, beer garden and s'mores at the central fire pits surrounded by Adirondack chairs at night! I would highly recommend this to individuals looking for peace, couples looking for romance, families looking to get away from their busy lives or newly engaged couples looking for a place to be married where you can have your closest friends and family all staying in one place but with a home-like feel instead of a hotel.
It was fabulous!
