I am not sure how to say how stellar this experience was. The welcome was lovely--we were offered iced tea, water or coffee all served from silver--while we checked in. Then, Travis our host gave us a wonderful tour of the main areas and some history! The home is well done in terms of historical decoration and accessories--all very high quality and comfortable. The room was large, and very comfortable--spotless, with a very comfortable king bed with lovely linens and towels and every amenity in the lovely marble bath. Robes provided. breakfast was terrific each morning--fresh squeezed juice! Wine and sweet and savory treats in the afternoon were very welcome after a long day of walking! Each and every member of the staff was gracious, courteous and extremely professional. We met many guests who were repeat visitors to this lovely home. The porch or veranda was just lovely to sit on and chat with fellow guests and enjoy the newspaper and a refreshment.
the staff bent over backwards to make our stay absolutely magical. The rooms and amenities were all luxurious, while retaining their historical authenticity. Location was fabulous as well.
The highlight of the experience was staying in the only place in the world where you can sleep where someone who signed the Declaration of Independence slept!
