This Tudor mansion was ornate and made to look centuries old. It had a weathered stone façade, bay windows, large central halls, wood paneling, molded plaster ceilings, elaborately carved staircases, stained-glass, and extensive gardens.
But the atmosphere gave off strange vibes. In spite of the potential, the place was lacking in ambiance. There was a weird aura, not characteristic of a B&B, lodge, or inn; just something else although I don’t know exactly what.
Our suite was spacious and ornamental, but lacked common amenities. There was no phone, no glasses, no blinds/curtains, no A/C (it was 82 degrees that day and the room was too warm for me), no ice machine, no elevators, no chocolate chip cookies (when we confirmed, we were told there would be some), and dimly lit. There were only two towels and one very small round soap to be shared by both of us; no hand towels or wash cloths. There was an event at the gardens that day so all the parking lots were full and we had to circle around for quite some time until we found a spot. There was no one to assist with carrying our luggage up two flights of stairs.
The two staff we met were nice and the breakfast was fine.
Although it was unique to have this atypical experience, we would not need to come back again. If you go, use a Groupon, otherwise overpriced.More
