This place gets a rock solid “A+”. Upon entering the immaculate grounds it is obvious that the owners and their staff care about you. The place is spotless. Ahh, peace for the mind. They serve absolutely gourmet level home cooked meals. Ahh, peace for the body. They add a massive bonfire on Friday nights, the occasional band, and many theme nights. FUN! There are many acres to wander; fields and paths are always mowed. Wildflowers and gardens abound. There are places to sit under the shade, across from the swimming pond, down by the river, walk in the woods trails, camp under the stars or enjoy a suite filled with antiques. The owners will either engage if you want to talk or let you enjoy some solitude. They are professionals, having improved the property and the experience for the last 10 years. It shows.
This place attracts excellent people, but you can tell the experience makes good people even better. I think the clients and how they treat each other make the place. People are outgoing and very friendly, with great dinner conversation almost guaranteed. But they are equally private and able to let you have your space. I find the owners protect this in every regard.
Lindy is always working to entertain with music on Saturday night because he wants you to enjoy yourself. He works in so many ways to maintain the structures, grow the business, keep the bonfire stoked, etc. Amy is always working to prepare meals because she knows this is so important. It is, but no less than her keeping a close eye on everything, directing a lot of the staff, attending to the details, etc. I have a sneaking suspicion that she is the reason the place is so clean! Liz is always working to follow the owners in so many ways, but has her own brand of providing first class service and a warm smile. I hope they never lose her!
This is only my second visit here. I come to heal, that is to recover from a high profile career. You could not be in better hands. Give this place a try. All of these reviews are remarkably consistent and all from once newcomers.
