And I don't say that lightly. I have stayed at Wheatleigh (which is completely wonderful!) and still prefer The Maple Terrace. Here's why: I have stayed there many times, over the course of many years. The rooms are always immaculately clean with very comforatble beds - even the cots are comfy. The grounds, watched over by the most majestic willow tree, are beautifully cared for in a way that is natural and welcoming, never fussy or over-done. The main gardens are lovely to sit in, and attrack lots of hummingbirds in season. In winter the grounds have a different beauty (And there is a room with a fireplace!). It is hard to beat the wonderful pool area in warm weather - lovely and sunny though you can easily find shade under an umbrella or nearby tree. There is a stables at the top of the hill behind the pool; it is beyond idylic to relax in the sun with a glass of something, watch the horses at play in the fields, and then when it all gets too darn hot throw yourself into the crystal clear pool. Kjell and Ann are unfailingly professional, helpful, kind and fun! There are several rooms that are dog-friendly. If you have a cold, Ann will give you honey for your tea (available in the Office each morning along with coffee, juice, etc.) Kjell will always find a way to make you laugh. As the sign says when you are heading back to your room from the pool, it is like "HOME."
