We had the best time here. The house was unbelievable and We could not have expected a better place to spend our anniversary. It was probably the best B&B we will ever stay at in our lives. The hosts were amazing.

The mansion had indoor plumbing. Where did the water come from? Cistern? Pipe from town? From the river?
