... Creaky floorboards, dated decor and furniture. Except for the electricity, you could almost believe it was a century earlier. The grounds were gorgeous too, and completely snow-covered.

to take the plunge and attend. It always starts on a Thursday night with an
opening Tattoo and goes on through Sunday. I planned my visit to take in the
Tattoo on Thursday night and a full day of activities on Friday before things
