We spent a quiet single night in the Garden Room. The room configuration with the TV viewable in from the separated sitting area only and not the bed is not one we prefer. Martha gave us some good recommendations for dinner and we ended up visiting the show at the Opera House. We were the only guests the next morning... More

We stayed one night in the Romantic Garden Room. It had beautiful old world charm and was roomy with a separate sitting/television area. Unexpected European charm in a regular neighborhood. The bed is small for queen size. Martha was very nice at check in and Jean-Michael was so interesting to speak with at breakfast. The coffee and pastries were amazing... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the garden room. It was wonderfully comfortable and relaxing. Martha and Jean-Michel were such lovely kind hosts, the food was beautifully prepared and served. We even had the chance to order Martha's evening meal that was perfectly tasty with wine and coffee. We had interesting conversations and learnt about how the exotic building we... More

My husband surprised me with a getaway. Jean and Martha were the absolute best!!! The food was wonderful and the service even better. The place was historically beautiful with very fine craftsmanship. Outside at night was very romantic and inside the rooms felt like I was in France. I will definitely visit again and again!

“The Romeo and Juliet room has a huge claw footed tub. Both rooms have small refrigerators and a sitting area. The rear room has outside access which is great for early risers to go out for a walk or sit on the porch.”
