Foster's Manor can either be classified as a truly funky turn-of-the-century discovery or a creepy castle straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie. I vote for the former, while my wife was firmly in the let's-leave-at dawn camp.
Someone with a bursting wallet lovingly restored this 100 year old mansion, and probably doesn't care that few tourists find their way here. Some very fascinating architecture throughout, and the place feels like a museum. Rooms are shockingly huge--we felt like we should have brought in three or four other beds just to absorb the echoes in the cavernous space. Staff are very gracious and helpful, although it was a bit tense watching the porter lighting the archaic propane room heater.
Making a good or bad recommendation about Foster's is a tough call--if you're ready for period quirkiness, go for it. If you want comfort and no surprises, don't stop here.
