While we enjoyed strolling through the scenic grounds which includes a lovely garden, croquet playing area, horseshoe pitch, boat dock and a family of deer grazing along a small golf putting green, we did not fancy joining 6-strangers for dinner. Guests, seated at a circular banquet table suitable for a wedding or special function, were served dinner from large platters placed on a giant lazy boy at the centre of each table. Not designed for people of short stature, I could not reach the serving bowl and had to have my dinner served by the person beside me. As well, one of the guests spilled their wine and it splashed across my plate. While it was a delight to speak to fellow travellers, I value my privacy and found this an intrusion. The room, although spacious, clean, and well appointed, was not up to par with other accommodation in a similar price range. The problem being smoke coming from a wood-burning fireplace located in the lower cocktail lounge - this smoke found it's way into our room which was located near the chimney. Bonus is the staff - outgoing and friendly and charming.
