We just spent 2 nights at this resort and found it a very enjoyable weekend.
It is one of those places in the middle of nowhere, you can't even see the resort until you have turned off the main road. You come around the side of a mountain and wow, what an impressive structure. They have a huge Christmas tree with white lights in front of the resort that looks the size of the tree at Rockafeller Plaza in New York.
They told us the resort is about 1/4 mile long and has multiple buildings all linked together making up the resort. Some of the wings have big porches (hundreds of feet long) with rocking chairs and tables, ours had a French Balcony.
We were in the Springs Eternal wing on the top floor in a king bedded room. Room size is great with robes, ironing board and safe in the closet. Complimentary coffee and water in the room and a small frig. Very comfortable room.
We did not try the spa or indoor pool but they were pretty impressive looking.
Everywhere you look there is something historical hanging on the wall or in a bookcase. You could spend days looking at things from the 1800's.
Someone mentioned that they have had 11 U.S. Presidents stay at the resort.
The Tavern is cosy with multiple levels so you can see out the windows and enjoy the beauty of the grounds. Numerous choices of beer on tap and wine by the glass. You can eat at the bar or one of the tables in the tavern. They also offer 2 more upscale restuarants, menu's looked good but we only did 1 meal at the hotel.
Staff from the valet parking to porters, front desk staff and wait staff were all very friendly and wanted to know if they could answer any questions or give directions.
Remember that this is a renovated very old hotel and there will be some squeeks in the floor, hall noise, etc. but it did not effect our enjoyment of the resort.
We will definately go back for another weekend stay.
The town of Bedford which is about 2 miles away has some interesting stores and restuarants.
