We stayed in the Eucalyptus suite which is in a seperate building/cottage behind the hotel. It was expensive (about $300 a night), but well worth it. It is sometimes used as the bridal suite. The room was large with a sitting area, a fireplace and bookcase alcove. The bed was a king four poster with a comfortable mattress and lovely linens. There was also a large bathroom with whirlpool tub and shower. The best part? No television and no telephone. There was a little ethereal experience with what seemed like a ghostly presence. Perfectly harmless. I confirmed this with another couple whom stayed at the inn in the past. The only drawbacks: lack of parking and the noise from the restaurant; especially early in the morning.
