I loved the grand architecture of this mansion, and was pleased to be greeted with just-baked chocolate chip cookies on the landing when we were shown to our room. We were in the Castle view room, and liked looking out on the grounds of Joslyn Castle. The room was very large, and the king sized bed, couch, vanity, dresser, armoire and bench all had lots of room around them. It was nice to have so much charm and to not feel cramped at all. I'm not used to having a TV in the bedroom of a B&B, so I didn't pay much attention to the little thing. Breakfast was great with an egg souffle, sausage, cinnamon roll and fruit with home grown raspberries. What a treat! It was a lovely and romantic trip.
