This review is long overdue. My boyfriend set up a weekend here a couple of months ago for my birthday and it was so so special. The property is up on a hill overlooking 2 lakes, we got there a little late and it was foggy and starting to snow so we couldn't see the lakes right away but I caught a glimpse of it later in the early morning. Kat and Donn welcomed us into their home and gave us a tour of all the gorgeous common area. The one thing i loved the most about this place is that there are tons of books and dvds in every little nook. you can browse all the different selections, pick up a good book and just unwind. I think I read on their website that they wanted Adytum to be a place were couples can come to reconnect, and they have set up the perfect environment for that. We got to our suite, the Orion, and were treated with a nice surprise of champagne on ice and Kat made us 2 of her famous carrot cakes and one of the cakes even had a candle on it for my birthday! The carrot cake was by far the best carrot cake. The suit itself was amazing (loved all the details!). i love love love how the pantry and kitchen area was well stocked with everything we could ever need; from hot chocolate, to popcorn, to even a wine bottle stopper for our leftover wine. We literally did not need to leave the room for anything. The hot sauna in the room was a treat too. In the morning, Kat brought us our breakfast in our room. She is a great cook and we had a wonderful spread of food. There was frittata, roasted potatoes, banana muffins (I couldn't get enough of these), home made maple butter for the muffins, orange juice, apple juice and coffee. It's been months since we were here but I can still taste every bite. We were so happy with our overall experience. We will be back and will be telling all our friends and anyone else to come here. Thank you Kat and Donn for the great hospitality!
