My husband and I stayed one night recently and wished we could have stayed longer! We were greeted by Riley, a wonderfully friendly and mellow dog upon our arrival. Corrinne wasn't home but Marlowe was very gracious and showed us to our room in the main house. It's called the Estate room. We had a separate entrance and private beautiful bathroom. Corrinne had left us cookies and a welcome note. When she arrived home, we had a private wine tasting with just her and Marlowe. She served a delicious salmon spread with crackers. Later in the evening she spoiled us some more with a crystal decanter of port and gourmet chocolate candies. We woke to the aroma of coffee the next morning, and stumbled to the back porch for the most wonderful breakfast we've had in a long time. We didn't want to leave right away because we were so relaxed, happy and full, so we walked the grounds and sat in a hammock for awhile. Heaven. We are already planning our next trip! We had the best time, Corrine and Marlowe are wonderful hosts!
