So went went to The Mansion this past weekend from Fri to Sunday for my birthday. The room was absolutely beautiful, the sheets and beds very comfy, loved the robes too. Liked the two sinks, one in the bath one outside, good for 2 people. Even tho it rained everyday it was still fun. Both the Pub downstairs and the outside bar was great. Room only had a view of the treetops, but it was still okay.
The downfall - the great wedding of the century that was taking place on Sat - went to the pool around 2, was told I couldnt use it due to ..the wedding. Everywhere I went, an employee would mention ..the wedding. So I took a shuttle to the Villages, where every kid imaginable was swimming, was there 15 min and it rained - not their fault, of course. While on my way over I got stung by something (no idea what) and my neck swelled to the size of Arnold Swarteneger (sp). Went to dr today as a matter of fact - the driver of the shuttle told me I must have "brought it from the beach" whereas, I never went to the beach. Oh well.
Annie, the bartender in the downstairs Pub was wonderful, so down to earth and friendly. Saw her the second nite too and she made it a point to bring out a cake and sing happy birthday to me - she was great. All the folks I ran into practically saluted when I showed up, even when I lost my room key. They were all great. Just wish I could have used that pool for the 10 minutes the rain stopped - the indoor pool was FILLED w/little kids and so loud.
All and all, a good time, the renovated rooms are just beautiful. Probably wouldnt go back, thou, its a tad expensive and you never know about....the weddings!!!
