Ok, you’re paying for a luxurious b&b, and it is a beautiful house, but what I loved about Stonehurst Place was the extras and the outstanding service. I flew in from the UK and I knew I’d be arriving at about 9pm. I was delayed going through customs and was over an hour late. Paul’s welcome was nonetheless delightful. Even though it was late, he gave me a full tour of the house, the various sitting rooms and, the lovely cookies, coffee, tea and wine all on tap. Breakfasting was brilliant. Unlike the UK where everyone has their own table and no-one talks to each other, we all sat down together and Paul made sure we were all introduced to each other. I find the US fascinating and my trip was part of my 40th anniversary tour marking my very first visit as a student, so I loved hearing about where the other US guests came form. Lori’s breakfasts were outstanding, I’m sorry I ended up leaving some! And wonderful to be greeted late afternoon on my return from sightseeing around the city with a complimentary glass of wine. Utterly fab!
