Stayed here over the weekend in the Hibiscus Suite which is part of the original house. Can't speak to the other rooms but I can speak to the experience of staying at the Stone Manor.
On the positive side, the staff who work there are nice and the property is attractive. There is also wi-fi included.
On to the negatives. Upon entering the room, my first task was to clear cobwebs and kill three spiders since my girlfriend has a thing about insects. Made me wonder how well the room was maintained. Stayed two nights and the room was not cleaned between days one and two. The bed (a full) was rather small. The faucets are rather annoying as they are the type you have to press down for a few seconds of water.
There is a set breakfast every day at eight thirty which will be brought out to you in the dining room. This may affect your ability to get a jump on the day. Each day has a set menu. For example, Friday will always be French Toast day with which there will be yogurt, juice, and weak coffee. If you give twenty four hours notice, you may be able to receive a simple substitution, for example oatmeal or boiled eggs. Otherwise substitution requests will cause confusion. Don't plan on having fresh fruit, bread, good coffee, etc.
Keep in mind as well that the Manor often has weddings in the summer months on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Even if you are in the original house, this will make for some loud evenings - while the wedding happens in a tent outside, people will be charging their iphones, storing things, and walking about the house on the wooden floors. For example, on Saturday evening from 11:00 - 11:30 in the evening, two men had a rather loud and animated conversation right outside the door about which members of the bridal party were the most sexually desirable and how they could complement their strategies in such a way as to improve opportunities for coital success.
Staying here will run you over two hundred bucks a night. I had expected a better experience than a hotel as a result. But as it was, I found myself envious of my parents who were staying in a Hampton Inn outside of Frederick. They had: (1) a nice, quiet room; (2) could go down and enjoy a good breakfast spread at any time; (3) were closer to downtown; and (4) paid a whole lot less than I did. If you are going to a wedding here and plan to be up late, this would be a good option. Otherwise take a look at the full range of options that are available to you first.
