My husband and I stayed in one of the first floor rooms last month. My husband was participating in the Colonial Beach Tri on Sunday, so we came down for Saturday night. And boy, were the reviews accurate. From the time of booking, Kristine went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay. When we arrived, we left our belongings to go explore the little riverside strip which is only a few minutes drive away. When we returned for the evening, we had intended to go back out for dinner...but she presented us with delicious tapas. So great in fact, that we didn't end up going for dinner (she even made a pasta since my husband had expressed the desire to eat that before the race). We were provided a bottle of wine to sip from and some wonderful cheeses/fruits. This week, I tried to mimic the pasta dish she made (it was only half as good). Later that night, she left a nightcap in the room. She offered flexibility with the breakfast since we'd be up early for the race. We returned after the race and were greeted by a spread of french toast, potatoes, fruit, etc...I cannot express how tasty everything was. Overall, everything about the experience was lovely. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. You will not be disappointed!
