As part of my birthday weekend getaway, we stayed overnight at the Stone Manor Country Club in the Thistle Room, a multi-level room complete with a two-person jacuzzi tub. A separate shower/bathroom is on the upper level with a skylight and cathedral ceiling that amplifies the queen size canopy rice bed. The room was elegant, private, and provided a great "mini retreat" for us. I can see how the Stone Manor is popular for romantic getaways and weddings. Breakfast for all the guests is served promptly at 8:30am in the historically charming Stone Room and is made by Astra Grams herself. We chose a table by the window and were served our choice of hot tea and orange juice. Then we started with a vanilla yogurt parfait with peaches and granola. It was light and tasty. Next, we were served a hot and comforting dish of an egg casserole similar to a fritatta, consisting of eggs with sausage topped with potatoes and cheese. On the side were a couple slices of a delightful lemon poppy cake. Although our stay at Stone Manor was short, the hospitality and service by Vern and Astra was above par. The breakfast was far better than typical continental style breakfasts offered by many hotel chains. I happily took home a bag of cranberry nut oatmeal cookies that Astra made as well. They were a delicious snack for the road trip back home to DC.
