Overall happy gal
I love the concept.. as a yoga teacher. Neighbors have Super loud kids… and that’s cool .. but disables “ romance.” Open a closet … walled off sloppy style , no connection on floor casings/ door moldings .. just cheapen how a hotel room of this price should be finished. No couples massage space without a door being open to the outside? It was 46 degrees … no! The staff was wonderful, the grounds are beautiful , our bath was super… the tea and chocolates and massage oil heart … so special … but get a good contractor in there and insulate against the neighbor kids … it’s their house next door so you can’t move them :)

Had a delightful getaway weekend with my girlfriend. The service is top notch - very lovely management. We took advantage of the complimentary honey tasting and purchased the candle making workshop, both of which were really fun experiences. The room was amazing - the management clearly spends a lot of time considering all details to make for a positive experience. Will certainly be back!

Would stay again…
Overall the property was very nice. The staff is attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend for a weekend getaway or longer. The only problem is parking, and I think they would admit that. There is only room for one vehicle per room, and that may be a stretch. You are able to park at a local park a short walk away. Please, don’t let this be the reason why you don’t book. Like I said in the title of this review…I would stay again!

This little resort is tucked away and so beautiful and charming. They grow all their own herbs in a lovely garden environment around the entire property. They do a great job of being very environmentally conscience at the same time providing beautiful and comfortable amenities. The entire staff are so friendly and professional. I would highly recommend staying here!!
