A great country hotel

I really cannot write enough great comments about Le Tapis Rouge. My wife and I smiled a lot as we pulled into the circular drive and saw this magnificent 19th century house. I don't mean glitzy or full of gold trim; but a solid, stone, period architecture, great looking building and grounds. There is a separate parking shed across a nice garden from the main building. Downstairs has a dining room and breakfast room and a neat semi circular staircase leading to the bedroom floor. The whole place has been modernized without sacrificing any of the charm. By this I mean lots of outlets, good windows and insulation, comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. You can have dinner at Tapis Rouge and we were lucky enough to be there on T Bone Steak night. Belgian cows are huge. Quite different from the USA. Unless you can eat a lot, 1 T bone is more than enough for two people. Breakfasts are cooked to order. The location is smack in the middle of everything you could want if you are looking for Battle of the Bulge villages and history. The legendary Spa Francorchamp race track is nearby and in the village of Stavelot there is a well done museum of the history of the track from F1 to the 24 hours complete with a car collection.
