Dreams....Part 2

Here is the rest of the tour, I'm sad to say that I didn't take as many pictures as I should have...

This is the brand new gym that was put in during a big renovations that was taking place. 

The indoor pool, there is also a new outdoor heated pool  both are beautiful, next door is the gym.  You can see the hot tub on the right side of the picture. 

This is the back see the lovely circular porch, there is also one similar to this on the side, you can walk all the way to the front from this porch.  We had breakfast one morning here on the porch and one morning in the round room on the porch is a great place to sit and read the paper if it's too cool to sit outside, there is a fireplace and a piano.  Below the round porch is a great place to have a lunch, a nighspot called "The Cave",  and a little coffee shop.  We really enjoyed walking about the whole place inside and out, they have done lots of renovating.  If you like to golf they also have a great golf course.

This photo shows the large windows of the formal dining room where we ate our four course meals.  In the evening after eating we would go out on the porch, we were very fortunate and had beautiful weather and mild temperatures. 

I could go on and on describing the lobby, the historical details, the ghost of the Princess, the food....

That completes our tour, I should have taken more photos inside, but I was really enjoying myself and didn't walk around with my camara for the most part.  We plan to make regular visits to recharge ourselves, it was one of the most relaxing times especially since it was not like most vacations where we go here and there and here and there.....we just relaxed.  If you like historical places like we do check it out, off season is the best time, it's more affordable and quieter. 


  1. What a dream! Glad that you enjoy it and had time for yourselfs.

  2. It really does sound relaxing! You are right about most vacations involving "going, going, going".

  3. Thanks for sharing this Denise... looks like a gorgeous place... I agree sometime you need a vacation from your vacation... I go all year long when I am on holidays I want relaxation and a good junk store to visit... you might have already figured that out

    Have a great weekend Denise and glad you are having some cooler temps.

    Hugs, Deb


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
