My husband and I had been traveling quite a long distance before arriving for a three day stay at the Kingsbrae Arms. Upon arrival, we were met right away by Jonathan who greeted us very warmly and with hearty congratulations. He very quickly swept us inside so that we could get a look around. He was extremely informative about the history, very comfortable with questions, and more than willing to joke around with us. It definitely felt like we had come to the right place just in those first few moments of stepping through the door! Our room was gorgeous with a view overlooking their flower/vegetable/herb gardens at the back of the house. I have never stayed in a room with such a lavishly appointed washroom in my life! Every little touch, like the cushioned vanity stool and small table with flowers, just thrilled me to no end. Probably one of my favourite things, though it may sound completely strange to most of you, is that after Jonathan or Dominic took care of either preparing our rooms for the day post breakfast meal or during turn down service that night, we would enter the room to soft music that just instantly put you at ease. The fireplaces would be lit (no heat coming off of them since they are the newer style and the weather was warm) and robes would be laid out for us. They even went so far as to lay out my jewelry on the side table instead of leaving it in the clump of chains and dangles that I had left them in the night before! Dinners were beyond exquisite. Chef Guillaume creates masterpieces with every dish, both in flavour and as eye candy. The simplest ingredients are rendered to perfection every time. There was not one item that wasn't simply delectable or beautifully prepared. Andrew's bread was fantastic! The best that I have ever had the luxury of tasting. And to top it all off, we were invited back into the kitchen after one meal to take a look at one of the next nights courses, a freshly caught sturgeon. We stood back there talking for quite a long time, enjoying the company of both Andrew and Chef immensely. Jonathan and Dominc were just as informative and fun to talk with during our stay. The gentle teasing and easy going mannerisms between the staff made our stay the easiest in the world. Harry and David were an absolute delight! The sweetest two guys in the world who were absolutely thrilled to meet us and to pick our brains about where we were doing our sightseeing and to offer up additional ideas. I don't think we could have found a better place to stay during our honeymoon. Absolutely impeccable service, amazing and helpful staff (Pamela even arranged for a special tour for us during a time when one attraction was closed for the season. Alas, I was not feeling well the last day there and we had to cancel.), stunning hopsitality, and the best food that I've ever had the pleasure to taste. Don't hesitate to ask for anything while you're there either! We had tea and snacks sent up to our room almost daily and they even sent us out with goodie bags on days we were traveling quite a good distance. All in all, The Kingsbrae Arms and its staff have made me a true believer in that I can have a "summer house" of my very own with the best of everything! Looking forward to making another reservation with them in the future! Thank you so much for making our honeymoon all the more memorable!
