We stayed here over the New Year's holiday. To say we enjoyed it is an understatement. From the minute we walked in, everything was perfect. The house was decorated for Christmas and holy cow, it was magnificent. Not overdone, perfectly elegant. We stayed in the Carrington Room and wished we could stay forever. You would think that because the rooms are near each other, it would be noisy, but no. We never heard anything. The staff was wonderful, I can't remember all the names, but Kay was like my BF. She was great. Everyone was helpful and accommodating. I needed something around 10 pm and they were happy to help me. Breakfast was a dream. Doesn't everyone want to be served in a beautiful 18th century DR w/beautiful silver, Tiffany windows etc. And, of course the breakfasts were always delicious. I especially like the fruit displayed as flowers. And, the porch was an amazing wrap around w/beautiful gardens to look at. A perfect place for wine in the evening. There is also a beautiful park right across the street. It is also near most everything and walking distance. We hope to go back someday.
