I surprised my fiance with a weekend get away and she loved it. I loved it myself too, it was great. So peaceful, privacy beyond belief. The innkeepers, Ivan and Rue were extremely nice. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a warm welcome and tour of the main house. We received our room key and we went into the room, the Cupola, which was such a surprise. A nice at home feeling, nice kitchen space and fireplace, hot tub. Everything was an overall amazing experience. We also stayed during late December and it was cold out and the fireplace made the room a perfect temperature and kept us warm all night long. Parking is also amazing, your right there as if it were your own driveway. I am looking forward to staying again soon.

Wonderful getaway

We spent our honeymoon here and it was just what we wanted. We met some great people, but had all the privacy we could want. Beautiful grounds worth exploring - great for romantic walks. Very peacful place to escape to. Will definitely go back. Food was delicious, delightful hosts.
