    Rip Van Winkle Garden Cottages are the farthest thing from a generic roadside hotel, and a totally unique experience. It's the kind of special lodging that you will remember (fondly) for a long time. We stayed in the Cook's Cottage for two nights. The cottage...More

    Very friendly staff took care to anticipate all our needs. Cooks Cottage is larger, but closer to public areas - the Servants Quarter Cottages are smaller, but very quiet and private. This is a breathtaking setting and perfect for a couples getaway.

    No. The idea is to disconnect. Not have your nose in your phone. The place is really beautiful and there's lots to see. The only wifi is the front porch of the gift shop.
