This was the most exquisite property I have ever stayed at in the US. It felt like we were invited to someone's luxurious house in Tuscany. The mansion is absolutely gorgeous. The service is top notch and the ambiance very intimate. We were happily surprised to be upgraded when we checked in because it was my friend's birthday. That was a very delicate gesture . Large bedroom with a fire place, high ceiling, nice furniture, marble bathroom...all was nice. The SPA is a gem and the massage of high quality. The library is very charming, the large living room very comfortable and the dining room with tables by the windows very nice. The only negative thing for us was the menu. Although the food was good, it was not outstanding for a relais et chateaux. What was more surprising to us was the fact that the menu was the same every night . Desserts were not that great. And i don't think having a ice cream sunday in the menu is appropriate for this type of restaurant. But beside that, we loved the place and will definitely come back at summer time to enjoy the outdoor . I would highly recommend this place especially for a romantic getaway only 1 hour 1/2 from the city.
