This bed and breakfast resort was absolutely fantastic, the best we have ever experienced (and we have traveled quite a bit). The rooms and common areas are beautiful, and impeccably maintained by a very caring staff. Every detail is attended to by a very attentive and genuinely kind staff that is passionate about what they do. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, far better than any Ritz or Four Seasons I have seen, with amenities to make you totally comfortable, including heated floors, whirlpool tubs, steam showers, beautiful piped in music, etc. The decor in the rooms and common areas is gorgeously designed by Christina, the Inn's hospitality coordinator, and she has done an absolutely fantastic job. The Inn has a wonderful breakfast in the beautiful dining room, with hot and cold items, mostly freshly made on premises, and all delicious. They also have a very nice wine hour, serving fantastic local wines from the region, with great hors d'oeuvres. There are several great restaurants a short walk away, and the Inn has fantastic homemade deserts ready when you return. All of this is included in the room rate, no add ons at all. What really makes this place extra special is the wonderful staff, including Adam, Rick and Amando at the front desk (and serving wine), and including Christina and Bobby, who also attended to every need, even anticipating what we wanted before asking for it. It felt like we were with a warm and caring family, and we didn't want to leave. They made great recommendations for the area, and really made us feel at home. Adam, Rick, Amando, Christina and Bobby, thanks very much to each of you, and we look forward to seeing you when we return.
