If you want serenity, this is the place. Everything you'd want is waiting for you in your beautifully appointed room. We stayed in the Enchanted Forest suite and had our own private spa. I also have special food requirements, and Zoe made sure I had plenty to eat -- even a special batch of cookies just for me! The breakfasts we had were superb. There was an elegant casualness to breakfast, so we were able to meet our new neighbors while enjoying a relaxing, but delicious breakfast. We also enjoyed the 5:00 p.m. wine and cheese get-together and the open 24-hour coffee/tea/snack bar. While there is wireless internet available, there is no cell service. This was a problem for us since my husband was in the half-marathon, and we had difficulty coordinating our meeting up in the end. Yes, my husband races while I have a delicious breakfast! When Zoe realized that my husband would not be at breakfast -- he had to get up very early to be at the race start -- she made a "bag" breakfast of fresh biscuits for him to take along. Beautiful, secluded, peaceful -- a perfect get-away.
