I received dinner and a night's stay at this Manor from a business associate. I was not sure what to expect but was immediately impressed when I called to make the reservation. The customer care representatives were charming and extremely accommodating, even upgrading our room to a suite at no extra charge.
My husband and I are young (27, 29) and didn't know what kind of activities would be available to us. I am happy that we went wine tasting (try Ridge wineries off Lytton Springs) before we checked in because upon entering the lush, elegant Victorian manor, my husband and I were spellbound; we never wanted to leave the grounds. It was almost painful leaving our room (with a balcony and views of the Tuscany-esque Valley) for dinner ( a five star affair minus the dress code).
The dinner was exquisate. I had three courses, my husband had four: Monkfish, Veal, Scallops, a chowder with white wine-reduction soaked clams, Shitaki mushrooms, and a prosciutto froth were all completely indescribable. At the end we had the home-made ice-cream, mixed and frozen at the table with liquid nitrogen. This was, and I am not embellishing, a life altering experience.
We highly recommend a weekend here. If you have millions, see about renting the cottage for a couple months and give us a call.
