From the moment we set foot in the stately front foyer, my husband and I were treated like royalty by our gracious hosts, Helen and Bruce. And it felt like we were staying in Windsor Castle. The lovely, elegant old mansion, appointed and kept to perfection by our hosts' tender loving care, created a romantic, peaceful environment. Our room was gorgeous, spacious, and comfortable...and we enjoyed perfect nights' sleep on the wonderful bed. The delicious breakfasts made us want to linger an savor the food and the moment. We loved the stained glass windows, the ornate woodwork, the period furniture...everything first class. We found the sun room, with the lulling sound of the running water in the fountain, to be especially peaceful. We spent part of an afternoon sipping tea and reading there. Helen and Bruce were the essence of hospitality, accommodating, always accessible, yet never intrusive. We plan to make Shining Dawn our anniversary tradition.
