A very good friend urged us to come here. She said it was an amazing experience AND she was right. From the first moment that we arrived to the last one when we reluctantly left, it was wonderful. Upon arrival we were invited into the breakfast room and offered drinks. We were given our choice of rooms and chose a large room with a canopy bed. We were encouraged to enjoy the common rooms and the garden - which we happily did. The next morning, we took a guided tour of the building and gardens and learned the history of the building and what it took to restore it to it's present glory. It was a memorable experience which I hope to repeat someday!
