Discovered Hillbrook on a LivingSocial deal - what a find! Made a girls' getaway of it, spending the day at the spa and time at the slots (a quick drive away). The room (The Locke's Nest) was immaculate, spacious, and extremely comfortable. (Hard to imagine the earlier reviewer who speculated about used soap in the bathroom...it is clear that the owners and staff take great pride in and puts great care into making a guest's stay unforgettable. Like the owner's comment below, I have taken my own sheets and towels to hotels and won't step on the floor - not so here). No central AC in the main house (can't speak for the cottages) and while there are window AC units, give thought to a spring/fall visit if you're super sensitive to heat. The 5-course dinner and breakfast were scrumptious. When they ask you for food restrictions/preferences, take this seriously - it's sincerely meant because the evening's menu is fixed for all diners (so everyone eats the same dishes) based upon the diners' dislikes/allergies/requirements. Am I really about to say...best muffin ever at breakfast! Saturday at 8:15 a.m. - breakfast room to ourselves - perfect way to start the day. The grounds are beautiful - too bad it was too oppressively hot to go outside. The spa - my friend and I each had 3 services: hot stone massage with Debbie (my friend said it was the best massage she's ever had), pedicure with Becky (who did a great job and was super friendly - she also serves dinner), body contour wrap with Susan, Kansa Vatki foot treatment with Susan, and facial with Susan. Susan is a delight! The foot treatment is done with a light touch (so not like having your feet worked on by a massage therapist). On the facial, Susan's gift is the face massage - there are no words! The spa is cozy - perfect for the two of us (if you have a large group, scheduling/overlapping might be an issue). On other reviewers' complaints about the 20% gratuity on all services - that's what I tip, so it just made everything convenient. My one regret - that we only stayed one night (two would have doubled my relaxation)! (If only there were a pool...)
