Rooms are located in either the original historic home or spread across several newer buildings.
Smoke free premises. 19 units. 2 stories (no elevator), exterior corridors.

Cons: Furniture was old, room was a bit cramped and cold
Pros: Charming facility and staff

Pros: The room was lovely and we enjoyed the instantly ready fireplace each morning. The best surprise was the outstanding breakfast available to guests!! The food was prepared to order with fresh eggs and ingredients from the garden at Applewood. A wonderful way to start the day.
