We were greeted as we walked in the door by Liz, who showed us to our room and explained the features.
She inquired if we had dinner reservations, which we didn't, so after deciding on the Bistro Maison, she called and made reservations.
The room was very nicely decorated with lots of special touches. Everything from the lights to the rugs on the floor were perfect. Beautiful mirror in the bathroom almost looked like it came from on top of a dresser. Had shelves on the sides holding unique blue vases.
A large armoire hid the tv in the corner of the room. Subtle wall paper on the walls with velvet drapes and sheers covering the windows. Even the wooden doors were unique with a bumpy finish of some sort.
The bed was extremely comfortable with iron framework around the top and at the head and foot. A little teddy bear leaned against the pillows to welcome us.
The downstairs areas were also very nicely decorated with antiques. The living room had overstuffed couches and a couple of chairs with a large flat screen. The breakfast room was elegantly set with Italian looking tablecloths, linen napkins, and nice flatware and glasses.
Excellent breakfast by chef, Jacques, and service by Liz was impeccable.
Homemade flaky croissants with homemade, seedless blackberry jam and unsalted butter
Saffron creme brûlée with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and strawberry
Quiche with a crepe crust, black truffles, topped with truffle oil and, if desired, white truffle salt.
After we finished, Jacques came out and asked us how we liked the meal. Then told us the quiche was made with ostrich egg. He also commented that if we knew of anywhere else that would serve you truffles for breakfast, let him know because he would go there!
The quiche was light and fluffy, unlike any quiche I have ever eaten or made. Not sure if it was the ostrich egg that made it so or just his french cooking!
This was our first bed and breakfast experience and I don't think we could have picked a better place. Any others would have a hard time meeting our expectation after this!
