I stayed here with my husband for our anniversary. It was a nice place, but definitely not the 5 star rating I was hoping for based on other reviews. First off, upon arrival our housekeeper seemed so concerned with giving us the rules of the house (don't park there, eat breakfast at one of two time slots, burn the log in your fireplace according to directions) that she never told us about the wine and cheese hour. We asked her about it the next day, but missed it the day we arrived because we didn't know when it was. Otherwise the housekeeper and the owner were very nice. We did get a bottle of champagne, which was a nice touch. It was chilly outside and the room was quite cold as well - we got around this by burning the logs whenever we were in there and wearing layers even while inside. My only other complaint was that a jacuzzi tub was advertised and the tub in the room was deep, but not a jacuzzi tub or particularly fancy. Overall I enjoyed it but for $400+ I'd expect a bit more. If we go back we'll probably try to find a cheaper inn.
