Dennis and Grant make a fantastic team. This was our third stay and we will probably go back every year to decompress after the holidays. They give you as much or as little attention as you need. We always bring some extra bottles of wine and champagne and they are more than happy to get us ice buckets, openers, glasses and will even supply plates for cheeses and such. FYI, there is a fantastic cheese and smoked meat store right next door.
The rooms are all over the top and tastefully decorated. Make sure to get a room w/ a big tub, most have them. This really is a perfect place for a romantic trip and it's far enough away from the wharf area so it's pretty quiet but certainly within walking distance. It's expensive but they do run some sales sometimes on two day stays, they guys are always very reasonable. But hey you get what you pay for.
Also, they do wine and cheese in the evening and the breakfast is outstanding!
Wish we were there now.
Can't wait to come again,
Brandon and Amy
