If you want to step back into time when the Goodyears and Vanderbilts walked the grounds, this is the place to go. The hotel is old but the rooms and bath are very nice. Just don't get a room near the ice machine as the walls are thin. The restaurant is a period location and well worth dining in. Then you step outside! The summer cottages (mansions) of the elite of American society before the days of income tax surround you. You can easily spend a couple of days walking the grounds and touring the homes. A very nice weekend.
