My boyfriend and I found this resort via an online coupon. After reading lots of reviews, we decided to book a two night getaway. We were so pleased when we arrived at the resort. It was everything we'd imagined it would be. Our room (the regal suite on the ground floor) was so spacious and elegant. There was a very large bathroom, complete with a huge shower and separate Jacuzzi tub. The king size bed was comfortable, although we both prefer a bit firmer mattress. There was a private outside deck, with two chairs and a table. It was the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and private conversation. The staff at the resort were all pleasant and professional. The spa services (I enjoyed two of them) were fantastic. We did not eat at either of the two restaurants, so I cannot comment on them. There were several upscale shops onsite which looked like they had everything one might need, if they could afford it! Free first cup Starbucks coffee was available at the furthest shop within the resort, at the Country Store. There are only a few things keeping me from giving this resort a five star review. One, was the bed,as previously mentioned. Two, it would have been nice if they offered a free continental breakfast with coffee and danish. And three, which is beyond their control, there wasn't much to do in the area. One day we went to Woodstock, but that only took up about half the day. The day we checked out we went to Rhinebeck, which is also quaint but not very time consuming. But overall, for a romantic time for couples, or for a girls' spa getaway, this place was really quite lovely.
