Sweet greyish cat was sitting on the stairs to welcome us and blended well with the surroundings.
It's off the beaten path, yet close enough to get to The Seasons so we can hear some jazz later on. They are also near enough to the wineries off of Rattlesnake Hills wineries, as well as the center of town.
The restoration of this place is astounding and wonderous. From the grey stone to the rounded windows, to the stained glass, to the oak floors and stairs, classic.
This castle (I call it that because of the turret for one) is so lucky to have been embraced by Holly and family. They saw the uniqueness and the originality and the warmth of this place and brought it back up to where it should be.
Even though it's a huge home it's got a cozy vibe to it.
The furnishings, the lighting, the pictures all convey the various stages of time that have gone by.
The bathroom in our room even had a door for just the latrine itself. The latrine is that turquoise blue and it's quite wide in back. The bath tub and the sink match and the sink is also of that large size. The tiles go even up to the ceiling as they should during that time period.
There are little porches all around as well as the great porch in back which they made quite lovely and comfy with places to sit and look out at the big old trees. The trees are full of different birds. Doug and I actually got up in the morning and sat on our little porch watching them.
When I shut our door to the room it made the typical creaky sound.. It kind of added to the old charm of the castle type home.
The breakfast was divine. They served our meal using nice old china. We sat with all the other folks that were staying there and ate together. They baked us some eggs, mushrooms and cheese. We had a mini cinnamon bun, some wonderful berries in a delicious yogurt. The coffee was strong and good. Plenty of orange juice to drink.
We don't usually like B&Bs as we like to keep to ourselves. The people running the place basically just leave you alone, yet you have all your needs met as there's coffee any time you want as well as homemade cookies to come back to after you've been in town!
The ghosts did not touch the cookies and left us alone as well, but I knew they were there just the same.
