My husband and I visited in winter -- it must be so beautiful in the green seasons! It's in a quiet location, attached to a golf course. The view out of every window is bucolic. It is an inn rather than a hotel, a little big for a B&B but so polished and friendly! The decor is especially handsome -- shiny brass, flowered materials. Each room has a seating area and a unique decorating scheme. The bathroom -- it was bigger than my kitchen! A shower AND a soaking tub, immaculately clean.
When you arrive, you tell the innkeeper what time you'd like to have dinner. Then we went up to our room and sat, relaxing and talking. Then it was time for dinner, so we went to The Library, where other guests were gathered before dinner. It IS a library, with many seatings areas of sofas and chairs. We sat and gave a wine order to the pleasant server who immediately stopped by. She also gave us menus, and so we ordered before going into the dining room. A bit later, we were shown to our table. It was an elegant way to begin a splendid dinner.
We also had breakfast in that dining room, full and excellent.
This is a gracious and quiet inn, designed for to pampered you in style. We loved it and plan to be back.
