This property was rich in history and had a homey feel… if you consider a miniature Downton Abbey “homey.” The rooms are all well appointed and each have their own individual charm. What I appreciated the most was that the staff were so accommodating, warm, and kind. Firstly Heather was incredible, she made sure all my finicky requests were made as I am celiac and needed help to figure out where I was and where I was going. Heather was very professional and patient with me and my lack of direction. Breakfast was also super delicious. As for dinner there is a collection of menus at the front desk from restaurants that will deliver to you if you don’t feel like leaving the grounds… YUM! Kenan took the time to talk to me about the history of the property and all of it’s notable occupants, he told me about the different rooms and the rich, soirted and beautiful past of the Inn, which as a solo traveller and a person in need of a distraction was a great way to pass the time. Kenan is wonderful and truly an asset to the property! Finally Randy, he was equally as kind and knowledgeable. He took the time to point me in the right direction everytime I got lost.. and like clockwork he was downstairs with my coffee order ready to go the moment I made it downstairs… even though his shift had not started yet. Furthermore, I was in Victoria for a not so happy reason and the Randy took the time to say hello everyone morning and night upon my return. Truly wonderful, scincere,considerate staff…. and based on that alone I will not stay anywhere else in Victoria as long as this property is still open and available. Also if I would have know that such a beautiful property existed I would have had my wedding here! The venue is ideal for a small (60 ish) person, intimate but luxurious wedding. Truly Magnificent!.
