We were very welcomed by the front desk upon arrival. The gentleman who showed us the room introduced us to the history of the old house and the family. If you are interested, he will be happy to explain the structure and stories behind which was like staying in a museum with a tour guide!
Only down side was the first room we were given, there was a pair of used slippers by the bed. Inititally I thought is part of the service but they were dirty.... not very pleasant.
