The Carriage House has 3 bedrooms - don't rent any on the top floor as they take work on your part. The room was nice in that it had a fireplace, central a/c set at 72, small TV, antique furniture, and a ceiling fan - but being in a built out attic also meant you had to bend a lot, stoop, and when showering perform aerobics to not slip and fall. Overall it was a good value, we got a full breakfast across at the Oge house, the location next to the River Walk was fabulous, the staff was o.k. - definitely not 4 star - we left $5 for housekeeping the first & second night and also asked for a bar of soap and more shampoo conditioner - didn't get either and had to go to a local store to pick up some soap - not very nice....
If you have any condition that makes it difficult for you to bend or balance do not get a room upstairs, or one with a claw foot tub unless you are taking a bath, as it is awkward to shower with the roof line cutting down into the tub.
Great if you have a family and want to rent the two top rooms, you would then have a nice area to yourself - with a small kitchen and stove top - note they do not let children eat at the other house.
Riverwalk is great - it;s just a short stroll to the center of activity, use it to get back and forth
Wander the neighborhood - beautiful Historical Homes
Ask for extra soap & shampoo on check in (if staying more than 2 nights) as this is not refreshed.
Special Diet - we didn't request any but now would ask for Heart Healthy as the food is good, but heavy on fat & sugar (i.e. grapefruit baked with brown sugar, baked egg dishes with lots of cheese) They did serve fresh fruit with yogurt which was great but we would of liked just a slice of toast with plain scramble or more fresh fruit -
The other houses would definitely give you more of a B & B feel, the Carriage house is just an extra area built around a garage - serves it's purpose but really very simple and plain.
