Breakfast was wonderful each day & even included a special treat of soysage for us since we're vegetarians! Juice, coffee, tea, & bottled water were available for breakfast. We enjoyed chamomile tea each evening before bed, too. We did partake in a few of the snacks which were available around the clock in the dining area & were delicious.
We also brought our own board games & books, which I highly recommend. The weather was stunning & we really enjoyed playing & reading on the porch. We also enjoyed our books in the evening in the side study. We had some car trouble & were able to walk back to the Cedar Crest while the car was in the shop. We really made the best of it by enjoying the charms of the house.
The shower in the Romeo & Juliet suite leaves something to be desired but is practical since there weren't originally bathrooms in each suite. If you're looking for a relaxing bathing experience, try #9. P.S. Shaving your legs in the R & J suite is not an option so be prepared. Other than that, the room was delightful & charming. We enjoyed having the windows open at times & the air unit on at others. The drawers could actually use a little paraffin wax to help them glide better but the furniture is antique so it is what it is. It's still super charming & highly endearing.
We spent a total of 4 nights & hope to come back soon. The location is beautiful, convenient, private but not totally secluded... just perfect. There is also an old cemetery that you pass when leaving. I recommend popping in if you have a moment. It's serene & features memorial stones for soldiers who never returned home during the Civil War.
