We get a lot of compliments about how comfortable our beds are. Susan’s recipe includes great ingredients, a lot of work, and painstaking attention to detail.
Each of our eight bedrooms starts with a well-secured solid mahogany wood frame, box springs, and a firm Serta mattress. Each mattress is topped with a hypoallergenic feather-substitute feather bed that you just sink into. On top of that is a mattress pad.
Our sheets are 100% Egyptian cotton. The bottom sheet is fitted and the top sheet and pillow cases have a scallop-lace trim. Each sheet and pillow case is starched and ironed by hand!
Each bed has 4 sleeping pillows made of hypoallergenic feather-substitute each with liner and pillowcase as well as a decorative pillow.
Each bed has a plush soft wool winter blanket and cotton summer blanket.
At the foot of each bed is a faux down or fur comforter. The beds are dressed with a Matelesse spread and a decorative bed skirt.
After each visit it takes up to three loads of wash to prepare a bed before we welcome the next guest.
