This place is a nice get-away for such a short distance from Nashville. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon for a two night stay . Upon arrival it was unclear if there was anyone to greet us as there is no reception. You must mingle about and ask for someone to help with check-in.
Our room was nice and it was very clean. Dinner that evening was really good and the service was pleasant.
We were told that because we would be the only ones staying for Sunday night, ( including 2 other singles) that they would not be serving dinner that night and would give the chef the night off. That was ok with us; but I never expected that all the staff would leave the premises by 3 pm! There were instructions to call with phone numbers in case of an emergency. This was very strange to me and a little scary . I did not feel safe at all! I doubt I will stay there again if the staff is going to leave guests to fend for themselves.
