We just returned from a weekend stay at the Chrystie House, and couldn't have asked for more elegant accommodations or a more gracious host! Mr. Lee is a gentle, charming soul who will make sure your stay the best it can possibly be. (I called him at 9:30pm en route from the Jack O Lantern Blaze, desperately looking for a place to eat dinner, and he gave a great recommendation without even missing a beat).
The house is stunning; beautiful natural light pours in through every window. The rooms are spotless and carefully appointed with thoughtful, classic furnishings that enhance the experience of staying in such a historic house without being heavy or fussy. Mr. Lee has put his heart and soul into this house, and it shows. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
For breakfast we dined on buttery croissants and pastries, along with fresh fruit and a mouthwatering spinach quiche. Mr. Lee also whipped up the best cup of coffee I've had in months! I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the dining layout - everyone eats in the same room, but each party has their own private table, so you can mingle or not mingle as much as you want.
If you have ever used Tripadvisor, or really if you've ever traveled at all, you know that there's always one person who isn't happy unless they can hyperfocus on something to be unhappy about. The stink bug reviewer is that person, and it's their loss. For the record, I didn't see a single bug, but it wouldn't have mattered if I did.
In short, if you're looking for a getaway with romance, history, comfort, great food and a great host, look no further. You won't be disappointed with the Chrystie House.
