My husband and I stayed at the Thorncroft for our Honeymoon, and were absolutely satisfied with our choice.
Upon arrival, Karl, the owner, sat with us for a while. He took us to our room, which was nothing short of paradise. The "cottage" we booked had it's own garage for our vehicle. We walked in and the foyer was spacious, with plenty of closet space and room for ironing. The bathroom was large, looked new, and was very clean.
The main room contained a large couch, two arm chairs flanking a fireplace, a king size four poster bed, and a jacuzzi. We felt right at home and immediately said we would never want to leave!
We even had our own private, covered, porch out back with a hammock and two adirondack chairs/table where we had breakfast in the morning.
The room was superb, and the service the same. The fireplace is ready to go each evening; all you need to do is put a lighter to it and the stacks of paper shreds and logs go up in flames. The fireplace is re-stocked/set-up for the next evening.
The jacuzzi was ready to use (Karl showed us all around the room and how to use everything/find everything) and had towels, bubble bath, and robes ready for use right next to the tub.
The room was cleaned daily and bed turned down nightly. We even came home to a surprise gift of flowers/chocolates as a 'wedding' gift one of the nights.
Service was incredible.. I called for two items to be brought to our room and it was done so within a few minutes each time.
The owner even printed out directions to the restaurant we had made our reservation at for the nights we were there.
There are probably things I'm forgetting, but I just wanted to get this review out there. I rely greatly on people's reviews and am happy to say, this Inn was a great experience.
Regarding the negative reviews: there was nothing close to a musty smell, everything was so fresh, new and clean. The bed/pillows were so comfortable; we slept in every morning and couldn't believe how rested we felt.
The breakfast in bed was served warm, and delicious.
Thanks Karl and Lynn for a wonderful time! We were so pleased!
