We just returned from four wonderful days at the Scanlan House. Breakfast was fantastic each day - my only complaint - put less food on the plate - I have no willpower! We stayed in the Safari Suite, a lovely oversized room with a double whirlpool, separate sitting room and personal porch complete with cat. We watched a large hawk in a huge tree just across the street one evening with the crickets and birds singing away. The porch is covered and furnished with comfy wicker - great for a morning breakfast or evening of reading.
The room had an overhead fan so we had the option of cooling via the fan and open windows or the air conditioner. Both choices worked well and the room was cooled or warmed to our desires within 30 minutes.
The 24 hour butler pantry with broad selection of coffee, tea and gourmet cocoa was a delight after being caught in the rain. Microwave popcorn was available to go with the broad selection of DVDs to sign out and view in your room.
Mary cheerfully shared the history of the home or Lanesboro with any who asked.
We will return to Lanesboro and I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
