I am a school teacher, who won a weeked for two from a fundraiser at my school. The Grand prize was a gift certificate to the Secret Garden Inn. My wife and I had a nice quiet weekend. The host, Dominique, for the most part, was amiable, but a little cross with the employees.
Each morning a wonderful French quiche was provided, and the outdoor area was fun to eat in. The room we stayed in was a little cramped, but the outdoor, private spa, more than made up for the tiny room. Once we figured out that we could park in the back, travel in and out was easy. Not sure I would stay again, but my wife probably would....
