We wanted to celebrate our 2nd anniversary, and to start off, we had reservations at another place. They called us 3 weeks before and told us that their restaurant was going to be closed the weekend we had booked, so we changed our minds and started looking elsewhere. I researched MANY places and based on excellent reviews, we started to lean towards Lion and Rose. We aren't extremely well-off, so we thought we'd only do one night, but the Innkeepers Chris and Roger were so great when we were corresponding, that we chose to go with 2 nights! We chose the Egyptian Room because one of the luxuries we were looking for was an in-room jacuzzi, which the Egyptian Room has. The room was nicely decorated with an obvious Egyptian theme, it was quite clean, the bed was HUGE (king bed), and EXTREMELY comfortable! My boyfriend and I both have bad backs, and we found the bed to be perfect! We loved the his/her shower and double sinks in the bathroom (which was spotless). It was great to have a small fridge in the room also.
We didn't mind that we'd have to go elsewhere for dinners, because we were going to be having breakfast at the B&B, and they also offered coffee/tea and cookies each afternoon. We didn't partake in that, but we did sit on Saturday afternoon and have wine and drinks with Chris and Roger and we had such a pleasant conversation with them for probably about an hour! They are super people, very hardworking, and want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your room and stay. EXCELLENT hosts!! Breakfast was absolutely delicious - especially the stuffed french toast on Sunday morning! YUMMMM.
We found a table in the room to be just a tad wobbly, and let Chris and Roger know, and they were very gracious about it. My boyfriend was actually going to try to fix it, so that the TV that was on it wouldn't fall to the floor, and they were very grateful, but explained that they TV is going to be mounted on the wall anyway (a flat panel TV). We loved having the gas fireplace (with a remote) as well as the ceiling fan (with remote as well). They paid such great attention to detail and seemed to really understand what people would want (dimmer on the lights right over the jacuzzi- GREAT touch).
All in all, I can't rave enough! Super Innkeepers, excellent food, clean rooms, wonderful amenities, plenty to do in the area (especially in the warmer months - we did find things to do, but a lot of things were still closed being early April and all). Thank you again Chris & Roger! We hope to see you again!!!!!
