Lovely old house on the outskirts of Scottsdale with nice gardens. The suite is very spacious and has all the comforts of home. Ross looks after the log fires at night and we had free use of their large video collection. Fresh flowers everywhere. Quality furniture and paintings provide a nice setting for this old colonial house. Only mark down is the small bathroom in our suite which spoilt the ambience a tad.
We stayed 3 nights, intending to eat out but once Dean had served us a dinner on the first night (pork for Carol & salmon with a spicy salsa accompianment for me) we revised our plans and ate in each night. Dean uses the freshest of veggies from an Aamish family in the region and the delicious brocoli was just cooked but still had a crunch. If you are unfortunate enough to only stay the one night at the Willow Lodge, the piece de resistance for us was a large prawn cocktail starter nicely flavoured and a rack of lamb to follow with a rich cherry sauce with a backtaste of chilli....incredible. We both like eating lamb on our travels but this was the best ever although his steaks are also excellent. A sweet of ice cream, fresh fruit and cream sauce to finish if you have the room for this.
Thanks guys for a great stay.
