What a fabulous birthday celebration at The Goodstone. We stayed overnight at the French Farm Cottage [so comfortable and love). We began with tea and white chocolate/raspberry scones after check-in. Yum. Then we returned for cocktails in the friendly lounge with our favorite server, and then headed into dinner at 7:00. We ordered the same dishes: the duo of marinated salmon as an appetizer and then shared chateaubriand. Oh my gosh! So delicious. Perfectly cooked. What we adored were the four different small servings of roasted vegetables on the side. My husband is not a big vegetable fan, but he ate them first! Dessert was a decadent chocolate cake. What we liked about it was that it was not too sweet. We cannot stand dessert that have too much sugar. We prefer European style. Coffee followed and then back to our cottage where we were greated with warm chocolate chip cookes, a nice coffee machine, water in the refrig, and wine for our indulgence. We awoke to a fabulous breakfast. You simply cannot describe the magnificent pancakes with homemade berry preserves and/or syrup. Husband had eggs over easy, perfectly crisped bacon, and fruit. We loved our visit. The grounds were well manicured, the cottage well maintained and charming, and magnificent food at a good value. I couldn't imagine spending my birthday any other way!
