Stayed in room #4 with our two children ages 7 and 12. (Many of the pictures on their website include this room as it is the most impressive). This room is right next to the main desk as was formerly the music hall. When they opened the door, we all gasped! Beautiful woodwork, hand carved marble, soaring ceilings, original chandeliers......... More

You bet! Furniture looks like period pieces? Sure does. The only down-side/complaint was with a skimpy fruit plate with breakfast....very thin slices of a few items.... More
