We were positively disgusting when we arrived at the Levi Deal Mansion, our bicycles, our luggage, and our persons caked with mud after a long, rainy bike ride on the GAP trail. The owners ran out to meet us, all smiles, with rags and hoses, whisked us inside, and gave us a glass of wine while they dealt with our filthy bikes and laid down drop cloths for our dirty shoes and bags. The mansion truly lives up to its name and is one of the most attractive homes of its kind that we have encountered. The owners are absolutely delightful -- warm, funny, very engaging, and they clearly love their work. The breakfast was spectacular and we were speechless at the sight of the largest, MOST delicious apple pancake in recent memory. We would happily return just to have another slice!
