We booked online from the UK ahead of our trip to the US, based on the TripAdvisor rating and weren't disappointed. The directions, provided by email ahead of our stay, helped us find Grace Manor with no issues on our first day of US driving and easily locate the private parking.
The welcome from host Albert was superb and he talked us through the history of this well-preserved house. Our room, The Shortt Suite was on the top floor and had two large rooms and a separate, private bathroom next door with shower, washbasin and loo.
The breakfasts are something else... multi-course and interesting, served in the dining room round a large table with the other guests. We really enjoyed the two nights there and wished we'd had another day or two to relax there.
You have a personally prepared and researched restaurant directory in your room and lots of local advice. This is a really nice place to stay. Quirky and interesting without a hind of Fawlty Towers in evidence, though we did joke about that!!! Look out for the surprise at breakfast!!!
Oh.... really enjoyed talking to people over breakfast......
Loved it!!!. .
