Given the choice between a no lake view room, a lake view room with shared bath and a view room with private bath, we opted for luxury--at $200 a night. The grounds and public spaces are beautiful, comfortable and well kept. Bedrooms are not. There was one hard chair, see photo, a soft queen bed, dresser and useless dressing table....

Our families were given the freedom to create our vision of the perfect wedding, and with lots of planning and prep, we feel we did it. Theres so much space for creativity here, and we took full advantage of that. It is an outdoor venue, so weather is always a concern, and has to be planned around. Our guests so...

Brett, Mark and Michelle made our stay very easy and comfortable. They were open and receptive to wedding venue wishes and made them all come true. The rooms were uniquely decorated and the beds wonderfully comfortable. The breakfasts prepared by Michelle were outstanding. We had a great time with no complaints.

We enjoyed all the nooks and crannies of this magnificent old historical mansion. A great change from staying in hotels and motels. We got to meet and visit with people from around the world over 5 stars breakfasts prepared by our accommodating hosts. With limited guests it almost feels like you have the whole place to yourself. The grounds are...

We have stayed here three times and will go back again. It is so much more than a hotel. Staff are very helpful, breakfast was super and small things like the use of local coffee roasters and soap makers pleased us. We loved the huge pool, the unique gardens and the special history of the place.

Exquisite! From the moment we arrived Michelle and Mark made this stately mansion feel like home. They were available to answer any questions we had and ensure that our stay, from beginning to end, was seamless and relaxing. We had the opportunity to meet the owner, Brett, and he also engaged us with stories of the mansions history; it was...

I can not say enough great things about our stay at the mansion. The house is beautiful and filled with original pieces of furniture, the garden is breathtaking. We...

My partner and I stayed at Blaylock's in late July and I was so excited because the pictures on the website looked amazing. We were not disappointed! Hosts Mark and Michelle made our stay extra wonderful, with late night fireside chats by the pool and homemade eggs benny in the morning. I loved getting a personal tour of the home,...
