Our tour stopped here. We might not have and we might not return. However, it was interesting, especially in the rope making room where we were given a demo.

The food was delicious, the presentation of the meal was unique, the staff was courteous and we had a fun time. Prior to the dinner we toured the outbuildings and antique shop, which was a fun step back in time.
