The house itself is stunningly perfect, decorated with gorgeous arts and crafts furniture, but the whole place still feels accessible. Hot water and tea were always available and brownies awaited us each evening to accompany our cups of tea in front of the fire before retiring. The "serve-yourself" winter breakfast options were simple - instant oatmeal, yogurt, granola, and orange juice - but a fresh home-baked item each morning added a special treat.
We stayed in the Garden Suite. The bed was comfortable and the oversized tub was a treat - fully stocked with a variety of bubble bath choices!
Touvelle House is also ideally situated near excellent restaurants (Nunan Estate was a delight) and many fine wineries and is in walking distance from Jacksonville's charming downtown. It is also close to Ashland, making it ideal for going to the Shakespeare Festival.
The innkeepers are similar to the house - reserved yet welcoming (my ideal). They were always very friendly, attentive to any possible need, and gave excellent recommendations and information regarding all there is to do in the area.More
