My husband and I were fortunate enough to have spent 2 nights this past weekend at the magnificent Rock Hall. We definitely hit the jackpot!
Driving up to this beautiful mansion just took our breath away. Upon entering the main room, with its magnificent fireplace and many comfortable seating areas, we were warmly greeted by Michael who immediately offered to help us with our bags. After a short tour of the house which includes a board game room, a library with a bar (if you don't finish a book you borrow, just take it and mail it back!), a billards room, another game room with ping-pong, foosball, pinball, etc, and an old-fashion seat movie theater along with a professional popcorn maker and a shelf full of candy!! We then proceeded to our room, Chamber #4, to unpack. The room was spotless and every bit as comfortable and charming as the rest of the house.
Off to the pool - BREATHTAKING! On the way to the pool we met Stella, who was just as friendly and welcoming as Michael. The beautiful, heated pool and jacuzzi are accompanied by a pool house filled with towels, suntan lotion and to top it off: an old-fashioned Coke cooler filled with water, soda, beer - just help yourself. Come 5:00pm, it was cocktails by the pool along with homemade appetizers. The first day we enjoyed delicious shrimp cocktail and the second afternoon a lovely heirloom tomato bruschetta that I'm still drooling over.
Michael and Stella recommended two awesome restaurants for dinner. The first night we ate in Infinity Cafe at the concert hall and the second evening in the Mocking Bird Lane Restaurant. Upon returning to our room at the end of the evening, our towels were replaced and cold water with glasses was placed bedside.
The breakfast was a feast. As someone who loves to cook, I was very interested in all of Michael's preparations. Each morning they serve Michael's house-cured gravlax, a frittata of the day, a sweet of the day, a salt of the day, beautiful breads, cheeses and a rainbow of fresh fruit, plus much, much more. During breakfast the first morning we got to meet the other 8 guests - the Inn only has 5 rooms. It very private and intimate. We also got a chance to speak with Michael and Stella in more depth. They are two of the most fascinating and interesting people I have ever met.
Stella was a like a travel agent with suggestions of places to stop on our drive home. We were sad to say good-bye and end our weekend. However, we knew we would be returning sooner rather than later.
I cannot recommend Rock Hall enough. I would give 100 stars if I could. My husband and I felt like guests in friend's home. The property and its amenities are so fabulous. Stella and Michael were so welcoming and gracious. Thank you to them for a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
