A special visit to a setting from America's past
Posted Aug 4, 2016 on Hotels
Overlook Mansion is a very special property, confirmed by the tour that the gracious owners were happy to give. Indeed, it would rank alongside a number of paid-admission tourist sites. Getting to stay in a room in such a place was a total pleasure--I would even say a privilege! The beauty of the late nineteenth century home, especially the original woodwork, is stunning. The setting is convenient, majestic, and very private.
The owners prepare a very satisfying made-to-order full breakfast each day.
Two things prospective visitors need to be aware of, though, are the necessary use of both exterior (rather steep) and interior steps, and the fact that the guest floor is set up in a way that some guests may have to share a bath. This is not clear on the Hotels.com site, which should be revised accordingly. However, the owners graciously made sure that our expectations for a private bath were met. Altogether, it was a delightful stay, and we would be happy to return.
