I planned a secret romantic weekend getaway for my lover, blind folded him the entire way (3.5 hours). We arrived late night Friday, so it was dark and ground lanterns dimly lit our path to our room. The mighty oaks and aroma of pure nature created a beautiful passageway. Upon entering our room, I had him start a fire...we were provided only a couple of logs, but the following morning realized there was a log pile just outside our room. I wouldn't have known otherwise in the dark. I had requested wine and chocolate covered strawberries. It was really hot in our room from the electric heat, so the wine was warmer than I had hoped. And I ordered a dozen stawberries but there were only 6 provided. It was still a romantic evening. We woke up to a chemical odor which had given us both bad dreams and headaches. The office immediately switched our rooms and gave us another bottle of wine, more chocloate covered strawberreis and a block of chocolate in the shape of the Inn. I had ordered our breakfast be delivered to our room but we ended up having to call them to deliver it and it was an hour late, but it was delicious! I had requested a couples massage in our room at 11. The therapist never showed. So the front desk scheduled another massage therapist for us at 1:30. While we waited for our massages, I had ordered a picnic basket lunch which included champagne. We picked that up at the community center near our room, very convenient! The food they prepared was delicious too. We found a nice little spot by the river to enjoy our basket lunch. Then we came back to room for our massages. When she arrived, she stated that I would have to pay her directly in cash or check (despite having already paid for the massages with my room charge) AND she had only planned to do one massage, as opposed to the couples massage. So that was disappointing, BUT the front desk removed the massage charges completely from my room charge AND credited me $100 for the inconvenience. After massages, we went into the city for dinner. The drive is nice, about 20 miles south. Then we came back, fixed a fire, had our additional strawberries and drank wine. We woke up the following morning, our breakfast was 2 hours late and when it arrived, it was cold :( So, when we checked out I complained about all of our mishaps, they basically CUT OUR ROOM CHARGE in half, and credited the breakfasts, the massages, the strawberries, and everything! That speaks volumes to me and that's why I'm giving this place such an awesome review! Mistakes happen, but communicaton and customer service make up for it! Despite all the little issues, the property, the stay, the people...all wonderful! Don't pass this place up! Great history, great hiking/biking trails. Secluded, off the beaten path. Glorious vacation spot!
River view with corner facing woods on 2nd floor = perfection!
