This hotel and grounds are spectacular. Its so restful to look out the balcony and see the horses grazing (the kitchen will give you carrots and apples to feed them). Don't miss the gardens. The food is excellent and the staff is very accommodating. Rooms are large and comfortable.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in May 2015 with my wife and youngest daughter (10 years). Although it was a bit difficult to find, the hotel and grounds were beautiful and peaceful. Horse rides were complimentary, and we rode around the grounds every day (this was early season, without a full hotel). Walking/running trails surround the property, with...
