My husband and I booked a last minute trip here in March. It was unseasonably warm and this was one of the only places open. Peaceful, gorgeous, relaxing with truly gracious hospitality. I'd recommended a quick escape from the cities anytime of year. You can always hot tub under the stars. Take any suggestions from Kathryn and don't miss the Lost 40, an untouched piece forest. Oh, and a hugely fantastic breakfast.
