The whole stay was fabulous from the moment we walked out of the rain into the foyer with a welcoming fire. The owners had fabulous information about the area and were more than happy to share when asked, but were not intrusive or overbearing in any way.
Our room was donned beautifully and made us feel right at home. The bathroom was clean and functional and we certainly used and enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub. Our room also had a shower that worked well. I mention it because I was impressed that the plumbing worked exceptionally, particularly for an old estate and we never ran out of hot water.
We found the breakfast to be substantial and imaginative and even found ourselves and the other guests pulling Raphael out of the kitchen to give us recipes, which he did happily.
We did eat dinner at the Inn and found the meal to be impeccable. Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area and being something of foodies ourselves, we often find ourselves disappointed by the fare at restaurants. The Fountain Room (the restaurant at the Inn) left us excited and sated. I had lamb chops cooked to perfection with fabulous accoutrement (the swirl of honey around the plate left me inspired). My husband had the Filet Mignon and we couldn’t decide which we liked more (a rarity).
Both Leslie and Raphael were accommodating, welcoming, and all around great inn keepers. We look forward to going back.
