My husband made reservations for us to stay here for Valentine's Day eve and it was a real treat! What initially attracted us was that your breakfast is brought to your room in the morning, no uncomfortable conversation with strangers to start your day, what a great concept! We were greeted at the door when we arrived and shown around the beautiful common rooms (we'll have to go back when the weather is nicer to enjoy the beautiful wrap around porch) and given a history of the house, then as we were the first guests to arrive, we got to take a peek at all the other suites as well. I can say we would have been happy in any of the rooms! All the rooms were nicely decorated and it truly felt like we were visiting a friend or relative and not just customers. We loved the soft music that was playing, the warm fireplace, the relaxing jacuzzi, the comfortable bed, the view from our room (the Brookside), and the food was impressive too! Even though there was a room above us and other rooms on the same floor as us once we closed the door it was all peace and quiet, just what we were looking for. The pantry was a nice touch with amazing freshly baked sugar cookies, water, soda, licorice, tea and coffee that were available 24/7. Jim and Joy both made us feel like welcomed guests.
