When I heard this was were we were going....I thought "oh no".. Boy was I wrong.
Upon arrival, we first greated by the owner Ed Kivett, who went out of his way to show us around the property. Really nice guy.
We had a 3-room suite and enjoyed the space. Stayed in room 28. It had a sitting room with two day beds, a wing back chair, and a gas fireplace. Window looked out to the back of the property. Room also had separate changing room, bathroom, and bedroom with king bed. We really loved the room and I'd stay in it again. Only con to the room was the matteress needed to be replaced (yes I even spun it around). Also, the bedroom is directly above the main dining area so the noise at night from the dining room is noticable. It was quite when dinner service ended.
Speaking of dining, we had dinner on the property and is was fantastic. We ordered Lamb Chops and the filet. The steak was ok/good, and the Lamb Chops were outstanding. Wine list was pretty good and overall, I was suprised at how reasonable our meal and drink total was. In fact, we were going to have dinner out the second night but decided to order room service from the main dining menu. That night we ordered salads and split the Pasta Special which was spicy cream sauce with sausage and chicken...outstanding!
Overall this was a really great stay, great food, and very relaxing. If you are looking for a quite weekend getaway, this is a good choice.
