It was cold, wet and dreary weather when we arrived at Airlie. From the minute we checked in with Molly we felt welcome. She was extremely helpful, providing us with the history or Airlee and even taking our picture at the welcome reception. We stayed at the recently remodeled lodge which as its own lobby with a huge fireplace and wonderful views. The room was lovely and a welcome basket was a pleasant surprise consisting of fresh fruit and cheese.
Dinner and breakfast were included in our package from Living Social. It was a short walk or drive to the restaurant from the lodge. We were escorted to a lovely parlor where a huge wood-burning fireplace was blazing. We enjoyed champagne and local cheeses and salami were served. The dinner was outstanding, made with fresh herbs and wonderful flavors. The rutabega bisque, filet mignon with a beet puree, were outstanding. The lemon curd shortcake and toffee was a perfect ending to our five-course meal. The chef is quite personable and obviously extremely talented. the staff were extremely courteous and contributed to one of the best overnight getaways my husband and I have experienced.
There's a cozy pub complete with a full-size bar and another fireplace. A pool table and games are available for the guests. But we chose to just sit in our private lobby area at the lodge and read a book in front of the huge fireplace.
Unfortunately, it was a cold dreary January weekend and the weather didn't cooperate so we couldn't explore outside. The views were spectacular and I am already planning a return trip for an opportunity to explore the lovely grounds
