The Lodge is just as described. It's completely adorable and relaxing. And it's got a farm-chic or glamping feel to it. Everything is safe and clean, but it's homestyle, such as our door didn't close tight against the doorframe such that you could see light coming through. But to be clear--no bugs came through at all, just saying there are little quirks like that.
The staff was so completely generous and kind. They really made our belated anniversary getaway so special, and we thank them for that.
Dinner was yummy. The breakfast is very continental--bagels, bread, cereal, hard boiled eggs, tea coffee. Just what you need to get your day started and lay out by the pool.
The pool was clean, lots of lounge chairs.
We were there during the week and it wasn't very packed with people, no idea how the weekends are during tourist season, but this was calm and peaceful. Our room had a fenced back patio which was so charming. We could use it early morning and eve, but it was too hot during the day.
The shower part of the bathroom is a little drafty since it's open to the room, which might be a problem for people who don't like that. We wanted to try the tub but it was taking so long to fill that we didn't try it. It's gigantic for 2 people, but ultimately felt we were using up water during a drought.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Would completely recommend it. Thank you, Sparrows, for the great stay.
