Six of us just stayed this past weekend (September 30-October 2) in one of the "apartments" of the BOQ on Officer's Row. We had 2 couples and two teens, and there were 4 bedrooms, room enough for everyone. Our unit was incredibly huge, with a long hallway that we thought was like something from "the Shining". The rooms were quite large, with big walk-in closets, the bathroom fully and beautifully renovated, the kitchen old but well-equipped, with a sitting room, porch and dining room. Like I said, really big! It must be nice, because we saw that the Governor was also staying here overnight.
The staff are charming, and made us feel very welcome. Yes, the place could use some art on the walls, and maybe some paint color, but it was so unique and historical that it didn't matter. I wish they had some nice chairs on the porch, but you can bring the dining chairs out. The beds are small and lumpy, but it was worth it to be in such a historic lodging. Of course, the grounds are gorgeous in the early autumn. Bring lots of people, and have a great time!
