We had a lovely visit to a beautiful home. Irena, the Innkeeper was exceptional and made our stay there absolutely fabulous. Breakfast was wonderful and the above and beyond service was just awesome.

Bocage is an experience rather than a tour destination. The experience includes watching the morning light play with the crystal chandeliers and other crystal throughout the house, savoring the quality of furnishings, artwork, decorative objects, enjoying the steam shower and custom mattress and large screen TVs all couched tastefully amid the antiques, being greeted with wine and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, given a wonderful tour by delightful, interesting guides, being served coffee in the upstairs parlor or upstairs gallery, then being served a delicious breakfast made-to-order in the dining room. The resident chef could not have done a better job or been nicer. We knew we were in a world we thought no longer existed, a gracious, beautiful, pleasing world. We will return!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a weekend get away at Bocage. We were treated like VIP's from the time we arrived until we left. The home was just fabulous and the antique furnishings and artwork were of museum quality. Dr. Rundell wants visitors to relax and enjoy themselves. No ropes over rare antique sofas and chairs is most unusual and a rare treat. We can't wait to find the time to go again.
