An historic establishment (over 100 year old property), this Lodge is without pretensions, but comfortable enough. In early Spring, the rooms are cold and drafty, but our room had a fireplace and heated floors. But the bathroom with slate floors was a challenge. It sports an old fashioned pull-chain toilet, but a good, though dark shower. The bathtub fits a large man and there is an electric towel heater.
Our old brick room was at the end of a short row and afforded the most view and privacy. The windows leaked air and the door did not close tightly . It had it's definite charm with a fireplace and a small double bed with a good down comforter and electric under-sheet blanket; there were reading lights on each side. However, a very dark, oversized dressing area didn't make any sense even though it sported an armoire.
There is a Victorian-style honesty bar, a sitting room and dining room. The dining room is cheery with lots of windows, a humongous fireplace, and chandeliers that are lit for dinner. Breakfast is a bit boring, and the dinners are good but a bit skimpy on portions. The gorgeous farm property makes up for anything luxurious, and the views are splendid. For African history buffs, this is a great place. The staff is local, as is the cook. A great perk is good in-room massages for a fee. The Lodge manager is friendly and caring. Make sure to bring your own hair-dryer.
