Highs & Lows

  • I loved getting lost on the grounds. The property feels grand for only having 25 rooms.

  • Every staff member feels like a long-lost friend. Felt at home every step of the way.

  • Don’t miss wine hour from 4-5 pm and the s’mores station later in the evening. These were two special touches.

  • Room service is limited and ends at 8 pm — no late-night grubs around here.

  • Spotted some single-use plastic containers. Hate to mention it, but they must go!
