Wonderful, elegant charm and character
Posted Sep 14, 2016
I chose Greystone as I was hoping for the experience of a true masterpiece mansion of yesteryear and the grand old gentleman did not disappoint! So many stunning original details lovingly preserved in place, the rest of the mansion is faithfully brought back to its splendor and majesty. And then there are just not words to describe in respectable detail the gardens and grounds that frame the mansion, so much greenery, flowers of all varieties, ponds, koi fish, a wonderful tabby cat, walking paths and quaint sitting areas all harmonize with the elegance of the mansion to paint as perfect a picture as any artist could dream of putting to canvas. The pride of ownership shows in the care taken of the mansion and property and in the manners and wonderful nature of the innkeepers, splendid people who are always there to answer a question, see to a problem or stop for a moment of good conversation, wonderful people! And of course being in the heart of Amish country, there's the daily horse and carriage traffic going by that is easily seen from the front of the property and a walk in either direction reveals wonderful bits of local history and/or quilt shops, antiques, bakeries and other various markets, Bird In Hand is quite a wonderful village!
