I had no idea what to expect as arrangements were made for me by someone else to stay here one night - a Saturday night. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My accommodation had en suite bathroom, high ceiling, comfortable bed; the door opened out onto porch/walkway. Shorly after we arrived at our rooms we took the hike down the long flight of stairs to the restaurant for dinner and a night-time ghost tour. Both thoroughly enjoyable. After walking around for an hour on the tour, we hiked back up the stairs to our rooms. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful, and the historic buildings are a treat themselves. We hiked around the property a little bit before heading out - it was so nice I would've liked to stay longer. Waiting for the shuttle bus can be tedious - so don't be in a rush. We waited for one upon leaving, to pick up all the luggage and get us back to the main entrance for departure. That wait was probably 30 minutes or so (and entailed two calls to the main building to find out where the shuttle was...) This place is best enjoyed by those who can easily walk around, as there can be plenty of walking and lots of steps. (My senior citizen parents would NOT enjoy this place, for that reason.) I was there in early Sept., so not having air conditioning in the rooms was not an issue - and the heater worked fine. A unique experience, sure to be enjoyed by fit history buffs---
