Needed peace and quiet for a couple of days, away from hubbie, cell phone, telephone and every other type of life interaction there is. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the outside of the house, very attractive and inviting. Upon stepping inside, I was greeted by one of the staff who helped me carry my luggage up the stairs to a room that was beautifully appointed with period antiques. After settling in, I went downstairs and met the innkeeper who was a fountain of information about the history of the house, activities in the area, where to get a bite to eat for dinner and how to obtain breakfast in the morning. I returned to my room where I enjoyed a peaceful jacuzzi soak and quiet reading time. Breakfast the next morning was beyond awesome. Fench toast to die for, eggs cooked to perfection, Sunday's breakfast was a German pancake, light and covered with fruit compote. Left the table fully satisfied after enjoying some conversation with the other guests.
Seguin is a quaint town on its way back from the downward spiral that all towns have experienced. It offered unique gift shopping, a small art gallery, a musuem filled with local historical information and a review of the local newspaper showed a calendar of activities for every weekend and lots of the weekdays. Local dining was a bit limited but I was able to get my dinner needs met without much hassle.
The dogs that were part of the owner's hobby were not a problem at all. Never seen, smelled or heard them until I asked to go out to the backyard to visit. I wish more businesses would incorporate an active social welfare program into their daily business, what a great world this would be.
Will definitely be back, planning on coming for the Taste of Seguin celebration event and bringing my husband this time. Visiting to other areas of interest is just a short drive from this central location.
Thanks for such a wonderful experience.
