I have stayed in many places during my travels, Christopher Place ranks in the top 10... Service, Hospitality, Quality, Just Overall Excellence.
The experience in booking and selecting my opions during my planned stay were top notch from the website, email communications and personal phone calls to make special accomidations. Marston and his staff all have shown they understand what serivce really is, as I work in a service industry, and they delivered on every aspect during our 3 day stay in Margret's Room.
The winding road up to Christopher Place reminded me of a commercial on TV where at the end of the trail you find a great treasure... Awaiting our arrival was Karen, she greeted us the moment we opened the door and knew who were were and had all our reservations and plans at hand. She provided an excellent tour of the resort and showed us to Margret's Room on the 3rd floor.
The first thing you notice is the huge size and portal style window allowing wonderful natural light into the space. The room is furnished wonderfully, sitting areas, and windows with spectacular views of the surounding mountains and valley. We relaxed for awhile and rested from our drive until dinner.
We ventured down to the first floor library/pub where Marston, owner himself, was serving wine to the other guests just before dinner. He invited us to the dinning room and seated us in front of a window with another spectacular view of the mountain range. Marston served the first two courses then our chief, Karen, delivered the world class entree and deserts. It was like having a private cheif as there was only one other couple there during our stay. The food was fresh and flavor filled, hints of unexpected combinations teased our pallets, we could not have been more satisfied.
After dinner we escaped upstairs to the 3rd floor game room, where my wife and I played several games of billards in the private setting. The game room was filled with pictures of the political connections to the "Price" family, and wonderful vintage game sets, games you know, but have not seen in this quality level, a reminder that you are in a resort...
We retired to a peaceful night or sleep, and awoke to a beutiful sunrise as the natural light filled our room around 8am. We ventured down to a custom breakfast served in two courses, fruit and yogart accompained by chocolate chip scones, this followed by homemade ham & egg dish that was awesome. Service again was excellent and the view from our table spectacular.
We rounded out the morning by collecting our picnic basket prepared by the staff and headed out for an adventure in the Great Smokies.... Relaxing and peaceful, with no stress, just excellent service, need I say anymore, We will return....
