We went here for our 19th anniversary. We were not one bit disappointed.
The staff was exceptional , they couldn't do enough for us. The room we had was so rustic but comfortable. We were in 42 in the carriage house.
Nice king size bed, brand new jacuzzi for 2 with windows all around overlooking the garden and pool area. Pool was closed which was good, I would imagine the tranquility would be lost in busy pool season. In that case we would stay in the stable room 42 which was very much secluded with a terrace with a nice view. Loved the accomodation and the wood burning fireplace. 42 had a larger bathroom though, which is nice but you have to climb a spiral staircase up to the tub which i don't like much.
The restaurant was so lovely and interesting. Lots to look at. Our first nt, they put us right next to the fireplace and that was nice. The room is just beautiful for dinner and very nice for a real country breakfast. The dinner was exceptional. We couldn't decide between the salad and the appetizer so they said we could have both. They would give you whatever you want, the waiters were the best!! The food was top notch, the fish was as fresh as can be, the veggies and salad greens were straight out of their greenhouse. The sauces were light ,flavorful with bursts of fresh herbs.
Really beautiful food, served one course at a time, great wine list, and fantastic desserts..Loved it. Breakfast was great too, buffet table of nice fruit, homemade muffins and breads , cereals, granolas etc. Then, a regular menu to order off of. The best home fries i ever had.
My only complaint was the area, there is really no where else to eat good food. There is nothing else really worth leaving the grounds for.
We went antiquing one day which was ok...then another day went to the town of Jim Thorpe, which they compare to a village in the swiss alps. It was very pretty but the ride was scary thru the mountains and coal mining towns, took a long time. I'd rather stay at Glasbern in the jacuzzi!! Oh, had a massage and that was great too.
We will go back one day. And, I thank them for being so nice....
