We came down for a weekend on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised by how nice the property was. We stayed in the Garden Haus, which was a separate little cottage on one end of the property. It was nice for us, having small children, as we didn't have to worry about bothering other guests noise-wise. (It has two sides which can be connected by a door between, and we used both - one for the two of us and kids, and the other for my mom. That was perfect - just enough togetherness!). The property is designed to encourage relaxation and time outdoors - lots of strategically placed chairs, hammocks, etc. It was fun for the kids to explore the creek behind and the property and find bird houses, fig trees, butterfly-attracting bushes, etc. The weather was unfortunately quite hot - during spring or fall it would probably be lovely to spend the whole day outside. We did enjoy the pool which was sparkling clean. My one small quibble is that the breakfast was all right - I wouldn't quite call it gourmet - but it was tasty and there was plenty of variety for everyone to find something to their liking.
As a nice bonus, we found that the pizza place across the street and the High Street Cafe about half a block down we're both quite good. There are several interesting little gift shops, too.
All in all we really enjoyed our mini-getaway and will definitely be back.
