“An old house with character and a feeling of welcome and peace. I went for a nice walk to Newboro Lake, only a short distance away, as suggested to me by my host, Charles. The wooded area next to the house added to the sense of being that much more in nature than not. The hosts are wonderful, accommodating. They made the entire process easy and efficient and simply enjoyable from the beginning to the end”
“Amazing house and hospitality. Yes, it really is a Manor. Even better than the house is the extraordinary welcome and care from the hosts. Wonderful people, running their manor in grand style.”
“Wonderful place to relax in peace and quiet. The house is beautiful, bed was very comfortable, and delicious continental breakfast. We enjoyed our quick escape from the city to recharge and would love to return”
“Thanks for warm and thoughtful reception & the delicate breakfast. Tastefully decorated, very clean, fully equipped, super quiet with only birds singing in the morning, acres of grass and forest, steps to the lake, the great place to touch the nature. While you can also enjoy the remains of history. Love to stay again and recommend to friends”
