We simply toured the mansion -- did not stay overnight. There are no organized tours -- just go for lunch (only open Wed-Fri, 11-2 pm) and you can walk around on your own or one of the staff will walk with you before/after you eat.

Came for a family wedding at the Chapel attached to the B&B. Stayed in the Hunt Suite and loved the bed and furnishings. The staff and food are amazing! Accommodated us for a very late arrival. The only reason not a 5 is I never give full ratings.

I have past by here a number of time in the past 20 years and as much as the out side remains much the same as older classics should the inside is as my 10 year old son puts it "WOW" and the warm friendly just like family service is amazing. It's charm it's class it's classic. Always a pleasure.

Exceptional property. Cleanliness was exemplary throughout, staff courteous and accommodating. The architecture is amazing, with special thanks to Myra for showing us the chapel and rooms with stunning features, as well as sharing the history. SO glad we stayed, really looking to return with more time.
