We stayed here for one night in Aug 2014. Our cabin had a queen-sized bed and a sleeper sofa, which accommodated our group of 3. There was a comfortable sitting area, which was much appreciated after a long day of biking.
However, we found the service a bit off-putting. You are required to order your meals 24 hours in advance. While the food was wonderful, we were less than thrilled with the experience. They are rather rigid about the meal times, and wanted to insist that we sit in the sitting room, not the dining room, until we were called to dinner--this despite the fact that all seats in the sitting room were already filled by other guests similarly waiting. Furthermore, the chef was very anxious about the food allergies of one of our members. While the guest attempted to convey that she was very relaxed and would be perfectly fine with just a salad and baked potato, the chef was insistent that she have four courses, because that was what was served--and then anxious that there couldn't be 4 courses for this individual b/c of her allergies (to the point of trying to serve her juice while we all ate soup). I understand that allergies can be a pain, but this individual goes out of her way to try not to annoy restaurants w/ the issue and the reaction of the chef was just odd.
