“Superb Quality dinner *****”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Fine dining , what does that mean to you ? It may conjure up an image of people dressed up in suits and gowns seated at an impeccably set dinner table with fabric tablecloths and fancy folded napkins, sparkling wine glasses and water goblets. A myriad of different silver forks, spoons and knives, stacks of assorted plates and a fancy centerpiece. Food and beverage servers at your beck and call. Most importantly a memorable meal served course by course will delight not only your palate but also be visually stimulating. This is a dinner you don’t scarf down in a few minutes, it will allow you time to savor each presentation as it is served. Getting dressed up and going out for an unrushed quality dinner served in four courses should make you feel relaxed and special.
If you have ever had such a meal you know what I am talking about and if you have never had such a meal you are in luck. Our little town of Lava Hot Springs can provide this quality of fine dining.
The Greystone Manor Dinner Experience meets all the criteria for an evening of fine dining. Vicky Lyon provides elegant meals by reservation and she has special events like Valentine’s Day dinners or New Years Eve dinners.
The atmosphere in the Greystone is inviting and usually decorated according to the season. Some special events will have a musician for background dinner music.
You call ahead to make your reservation and that is also when you choose the dinner selection for the evening. A dinner for two will run about $75 depending on the selection.
When you arrive at the Greystone you will be seated at an elegantly set table and asked about your choice of beverages. As you look at the table and begin your meal you start notice the little details, because it is the little details that are the art in fine dining. Things like the slice of lemon in your water goblet or a few olives on a tiny plate to cleanse your palate and aid digestion. The first course may be a shrimp cocktail with a slice of lemon. The shrimp are fanned out beautifully but the red edge of the lemon wedge where it was dipped in paprika makes it special. The waitperson will be there as you finish the first course then serve the next course, probably a salad. Our salad was hearts of romaine artistically laid out like a wreath and smothered in fresh grated parmesan cheese and bright red cherry tomatoes.
The appetizer fork and salad fork have now disappeared as you work your way to the dinner fork and the next course. When you start to butter a roll you notice even the butter has been detailed with little scalloped edges. The main course will be served next. It will come with a meat, vegetables and potatoes. We had a New York steak cooked to perfection, a tasty vegetable medley including asparagus in a fantastic sauce and Idaho mashed potatoes blended with chunks of delicious lobster. You might ask about the mini ravioli’s smothered in a brown sugar walnut sauce that is scrumptious.
Our desert was a delightful pirouline cookie and crème brulee , a delicious cup of creamy custard with a caramelized sugar top. It was the perfect finish to a great dining experience.
The leftovers ( not much ) were packaged in a tin foil swan, much more artistic than in a Styrofoam box.

We loved being in the basement of this old church. It was so quiet and serene. Vicki and Blake were very accommodating and even came in early our last day to get us breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary. The only complaint my husband has was that his pillow was too big so his sleep wasn't the greatest.

We have stayed twice at the Lyon House through the Greystone Manor and it's the only place we will ever stay when we go to Lava Hot Springs you can count on cleanliness and the owner Vicky bought our dinner after staying the first night at another motel in lava that was a dirty dump.

Vicki and her staff were 5 star quality in regards too accommodations, customer service, food, comfort, and easy going. They offered a four course dinner, and a couple massage by licensed massage therapists (for an extra charge) we we knew up front. The staff was competent and very nice. She served warm breakfast everyday, and the rooms were clean, comfortable, and nice sized. Our room had a king size bed with a fire place and tv/dvd. The rates were very reasonable as well. I highly recommend this establishment if you are planning on staying in the area, as my wife and I had a great 18 year anniversary spent there. I never write reviews, so they had to be very impressive for me to sit down and take the time to write one. A+++. Thank you Greystone!!!

Lava Hot Springs is a lovely, homey little town, but the best part about it is Greystone Manor! We have stayed in the manor itself, which is absolutely gorgeous, and perfect for a weekend getaway. It's clean, comfy, romantic and Vicky, the owner, and her family cook the BEST food in town. We have also stayed in "The Cabin", a separate vacation house, which we are in love with:) It's like a little cabin in the mountains and is so cozy you don't want to leave. Vicky is so accomodating and fun, she makes you feel like part of the family. The morning breakfast is to die for and the manor hosts a Dine and Unwind package with a couples massage and an amazing dinner - highly recommended! We love staying there so much we're making it a permanent part of our vactions. Best experience ever!!

Room Tip: The Cabin is great for a stay 2 nights or longer.

We stayed at the Lyon house with our family when we went to our daughter-in-law's graduation from ISU. The house was dirty. We killed three spiders, one in the kitchen sink and two in one of the upstairs bedrooms. We had planned to grill steaks, but the grill is an old, rusty charcoal grill that requires lighter fluid. There were cigarette butts left in the ashtray on the table. The kitchen was "stocked" with one small frying pan, not sufficient to cook the steaks we brought. The carpet was dirty, as were the windows and window sills. To get to the bedrooms upstairs you have to walk through the "bedroom" which is actually the dining room, I think. You also have to walk through the dining room "bedroom" to get to the one small bathroom in the house. Overall, I was terribly disappointed. We did not feel comfortable, and none of us slept well during the night before graduation. The upstairs bedrooms are small, and one room has what looks like cots rather than beds. We did not use that room. Instead, one son slept on the couch downstairs. I just wanted the night to be over. We were so excited because we had read the positive reviews. However, it did not meet our expectations. If you are planning on a camping trip, then maybe the Lyon House will meet your needs. I will say that the manager was friendly, and they took our steaks and cooked them (to perfection) at the Greystone Manor.
