The hosts, Janet and Daryl, were very friendly and obviously experienced: Janet had been head of hospitality at Mohonk Mountain House, and Daryl a chef there. So the breakfasts were super, and the rooms well-appointed and clean. Mattresses were comfortable and rooms very nice. Everything was in period and very pretty. The downsides, which were minor, had to do with the Victorian-era house. No private tubs/showers, except in one room, and Air Conditioning was somewhat sparse and weak--which was somewhat tough in a very hot July. Hosts can be a little hard to track down during the day, but their good nature far outweighs that.
