My only regret staying here was that we didn't leave a day or two to actually enjoy the Mansion.
Jim the manager/chef/tour guide/bartender/... is Awesome! He made us feel like we owned the place! Anything and everything we could want/need he provided. Any questions were answered promptly and accurately. There was a lighthearted discussion about bacon the first morning we were there, another couple asked for and got bacon and we didn't know it was available. The second morning I asked for just a cheese omelet and got bacon on my plate also, which he had remembered me not getting the day before. :-)
The building is awesome, made you feel like you were the original owner. The plumbing is a puzzle at first, but when you figure out the shower knobs, you'll be okay. Give the hot water a little time to get through the system. :)
My girlfriend has family in the area so I KNOW we'll be staying here again sometime!
