Each room is beautifully decorated with four poster canopy beds and antique (reproduction)furniture. The rooms also are unique in style and location within the Inn. Depending on your budget, you may select the standard room located within the main building or, for a slightly higher rate, choose a room that faces the expertly maintained flower garden. You may also choose the two level tower suite with wetbar and jacuzzi. We selected a room facing the garden, so I'm not sure what the standard hotel rooms or the suite are like. We had our own little sitting area with chairs outside of our room. We used this patio to unwind and enjoy the fragrances of the many flowers and listen to the trickling sounds of the fountain. Inside, our room accomodations included two queensize canopy beds, a sitting area that contained a large comfy couch and two chairs. We also had a large TV with a VCR. The beds were furnished with down comforters and pillows. The Inn, however, does not provide terry cloth robes. The bathroom area was large enough for one person to apply make-up or blowdry their hair while the other one dressed, showered, or whatever else...
Every evening, the Inn offered complimentary wines, cheeses, desserts, coffee, and soda in the piano bar. The wines usually came from one of the local wineries. Each morning, in the same room, you could enjoy what the Inn called a "full European Buffet breakfast." This was a bit of a disappointment. I imagined the buffet as this huge layout of cheeses, meats, breads, fruits, cereals, an omelet and Belgian Waffle stations. What we found was a small table of cold cuts, cheeses, some fruits, bagels, cereal, coffee, and juices.
Make reservations at least 2 to 3 months in advance. If there is a special event on the weekend you plan to visit, you should call at least 6 months ahead of time.
