My wife and I come here as a special getaway for special occasions. This time we stayed in the "Patrick Swayze Suite" and enjoyed it very much. It's a five room corner suite with jacuzzi, kitchenette, king bed, and living room. This hotel is one of the great old hotels of the last century. It's filled with paintings, furniture, and last century charm. Really if you are looking for bright lights, cowds, and 21st century furnishings, you're in the wrong neighborhood! Here, there is a nice pool, lots of sitting areas, classic artwork, and the grounds have Grecian statues and beautiful landscaping. A player piano plays classical and early 20th century classics during dinner and you feel like you are transported to an earlier time, back to the 1920's and 30's when even a sitting US President could visit and enjoy being among his constituents. Gentlemen don't have to dress up for meals but they'll feel better wearing a sport coat to dinner. This is where the cast stayed during much of the filming of the old movie, "Dirty Dancing" but other movies were filmed in the area as well. The rooms are old but have that old elegance as well. Another treasure here are the people who work here and enjoy sharing the Inn with guests. There is also MUCH talk and interest in GHOSTS who, the staff has honestly come to believe, play little tricks on them and the guests. Nothing bad or frightening, just fun or strange. If you are looking for modern luxury go to a Hilton in some city. Here you will get a taste of what it was like for people of privilege back in 1927. This hotel is a special gem from a bygone era and a privilege to experience.
