I wanted to treat my wife to a nice get away weekend to help her celebrate (and cope) with a milestone birthday (ends with a "0") and we finally had the opportunity to stay at the Old Edwards Inn. The wait was surely worth it! I had preordered roses in the room which were there but the staff had spread red rose petals over the bed with 2 red roses on the dresser. We had a room in the original inn building with a balcony overlooking main street which was great. Coffee, sweet roll, talk and a little reading made the weekend very relaxing.
I made reservations at Madison's (their main restaurant) for dinner and the table again had red rose petals scattered which pleased her. The food and service was excellent!
I can't explain how attentive and professional the staff was to our every need. We definitely will be back and this time with friends. Oh, did I mention the heated floors in the bathroom?
