We stayed in the Barnum Suite, which was soothing and opulent--giant cozy bed, two-person Jacuzzi in a bathroom with delightful old-fashioned tiles, and a fireplace, just like we'd been craving! The breakfast was delicious and ample, and Joy was wonderful about accommodating dietary restrictions, even making me a special main dish because I couldn't eat the one she had planned for that morning. The hosts were helpful but unobtrusive--there when we needed them, but happy to let us enjoy our delightful retreat for two. Definitely recommended for a peaceful, romantic mini-break!
