Home is in a nice quiet wooded setting. Clean room, French country motif, vintage 80's Laura Ashley linens. French country breakfast of yogurt, granola, fresh fruit and fresh pastry. First night was quiet and enjoyable. Second night was less than respectful for all guests spending the evening. Appears that our hostess had a bachelorette cooking party with typical loud outbursts... More

Our cooking classes are normally over at 9:30, all of our guests were out the door by 10:30...We, regretfully did not have much control over the fun and noise level generated by our guests...We did repeatedly ask them leave and asked them to be quiet as we knew you were upset. I did send you an apology and a partial... More

My husband and I took a round table cooking class here and it was really fun. We each brought a bottle of wine to share with the group of 10 other couples. The chef paired everyone up with someone else so we as a couple could learn as much as possible. We all then proceeded to create an amazing meal... More

I was at the Kilpatrick/Johnson wedding, 8/22/15, as an invited guest & part of the wedding party. I was privy to the written flow sheet/schedule. 1) Per K/J's written schedule - 'dinner to start at 7:10 pm. Cake cutting 8:20'. Plain and simple - dinner was not served on time. It was well after 8 pm before my table was... More

Patti, thanks for this review...We do not feel it is presented with the correct information. Our dinner service was started on time and the hot entree was served on time.

We rented the Chef's cottage for a week to help out our daughter and the new baby in their family. It was clean and attractive with a bedroom and large kitchen/sitting room. The owner was friendly and helpful, even during the power outage caused by a huge windstorm. The setting was quiet, with a lovely garden. It might be a... More

We arrived in time to settle in and then headed straight to the French Cuisine cooking class. It was a new experience, and one we're so glad we tried. The class was so much fun and gave us an opportunity to meet and dine with new friends. Chef Philip was clearly a professional, but knew how to keep things light... More
