I didn't want to leave but since I couldn't stay longer I was anxious to get home and tell everyone how awesome this place is.
My husband and I just moved from the Desoto County area a few months ago. It was ironic to be going back there for vacation. We had a very stressful spring and wanted to go somewhere we could just do "nothing". Andover did not disappoint. Since we lived in the area previously we didn't feel compelled to leave the property to do touristy things.
We arrived our first night and were blown away by how beautiful it was. Bonus when she said what time would you like your breakfast to arrive. Our entire purpose/goal was to relax and do nothing, so the idea of breakfast in our room was amazing.
That first night we went down to the porch off the pool, which was beautiful by the way, We just sat on the porch swing and listened to it rain. It was so peaceful. Great way to begin our trip to decompress. We later grabbed a movie from their collection and watched it in our room. We realized late on the second day that there was cable. We were actually glad to have not known since for us it would have been a distraction.
The next day after eating an absolutely delicious breakfast in bed and being utterly lazy we headed back to the porch swing. We spent most of our day there just reading. Our room had its own balcony with rockers and a bistro table and chairs. We had brought the leftovers of our Subway lunch from the day before. There was a mini fridge in the common area for us to store it. So we ate our leftovers for lunch on our balcony.
Our only regret was that we had not planned at least one more day. Lin was an absolutely delightful host. There were other guests staying there but we never saw them and only heard doors a few times during the day. It was so peaceful and quiet. Just what we needed for our short getaway. We are thinking maybe this needs to be an annual retreat for us. We would definitely go back.
