I'm terrified that many more good reviews will make Elm Creek Manor too popular to get a room there. But they do everything so well, they deserve the plaudits.
Elm Creek Manor gets all the details right. The room was luxurious yet comfy and relaxing. The guest care was perfect yet always unobtrusive. There are far more facilities than you'd expect for a B&B that accomodates 10 guests. Snacks and coffee/tea always available. The property is gated so your privacy is assured (important if you go from your room to the spa in a bath robe, as recommended). Somebody here has done a lot of thinking about how to make guests' stays perfect.
Five stars for sleep quality barely captures the essence. With a perfect bed, dead quiet surroundings, and just right climate control, we enjoyed10.5 hours of sleep. Normally about two nights' worth for me.
Of the room options I'd recommend the late checkout - 2pm. Very useful if you've slept well and don't feel much like getting a move-on next morning.
There really are only five rooms - three in the main house and two detached cottages, plus a spa on site. Hors d'oeuvres with the other guests an hour before dinner - all of which was enhanced by enjoyable conversation with the other guests. The five-course dinner was very good, not quite gourmet but very tasty, quite filling, and the wine flows throughout. The other guests were nice people and real world, no attitudes whatsoever.
From Dallas it's just over an hour's drive but feels a world away from everything. We've finally found our runaway-from-home.
