I wish this hotel was somewhere closer to me. It was a fantastic get away. Just far enough from Virginia Beach. I do not like being in really populated, loud places like one of the hotels on the beach. This was a great place with very friendly staff. The decor was lovely: different from the usual done in a Colonial style. Lovely woodwork throughout and nice places to sit outside in lush gardens. Highly recommend! This the only review I have ever done because I really liked this hotel. I travel at least two to three days a week all over and most hotels are the same to me. This is very unique and wonderful.
pros: The staff was great!! The room was very nice; soft beds. The grounds were beautiful and the restaurant was very good too!!
cons: My room was slightly musty smelling.
