We enjoyed a special package of room with dinner. I had an aged filet with classic bearnaise sauce. The wine was great and the service was outstanding. FYI--weekends in June require definite advance booking; they are a preferred wedding venue, having large pavilion with dance floor, photographers, and great French food and wine.
The decor is decidedly continental--one would think they are in a B&B in France.
The hosts, Lil and Lori, are most welcoming. Lil is originally from Grasse, France. Together they also operate St. Jacques, an award winning restaurant in Raleigh.
Burke Manor is almost as good as a short trip to France, but no need for air ticket.
