    We had an excellent stay in the Quill Cottage. We would definitely recommend a stay there. We would have liked to have had more time to explore the property. The setting is gorgeous. The breakfast was delicious with great presentation.

    Good morning! Thank you for your question. The Ardor of Hope Suite whirlpool tub is a one-person tub rather than two. The Bergey, Quill and Fitzgerald Cottages have whirlpool tubs for two. Thank you! Hope to have you!
