We had booked one special night at Dalvay By The Sea before we met our friends to share a vacation cottage for 2 weeks. We arrived to a friendly welcome from Lena who took our bag upstairs to the most beautiful King Suite, filled with gorgeous antique furniture, a large bay window overlooking both the lake & the ocean, a vintage black & white bathroom with a claw tub, and lots of sunlight. We mentioned how thrilled we were to be there to celebrate our anniversary & getting through a health challenge as well.
Within 20 minutes, a knock on our door brought us a lovely bottle of wine and a personal note from Ryan the general manager. Impressive.
We went downstairs for dinner, and found that because there was a large noisy group in the dining room, a private dining room had been setup for us in a sitting room, with a view of the lake.
Heather looked after us, and she had set the table with candles & flowers, and took photos of every course. We had the most delicious meal, with flowers from the chef decorating our desserts, and were served coffee in front of our own private fire in our sitting room. We felt like celebrities. Ryan came by to chat during dininer & to ensure that we had everything that we needed as well.
After a walk on the beach across the road in the morning, we enjoyed the same private dining room for breakfast with our friendly Heather serving us again.
We could not have had a more wonderful special night to celebrate, and we cannot say enough about how friendly and personal each member of the staff were in making our stay a very memorable one indeed. Amazing service and care. Thank you.
