We chose the Craftsman Inn for its traditional decor, home-cooked breakfasts, and meeting other guests from around the US at the big table each morning. We appreciated the baked scones and muffins, sherry and wine left out for us and the comfortable lounge to sit in at night.
... hour massage. The mud baths were soooo hot, it took quite a few minutes to get used to the heat, and then we had a jacuzzi and a blanket wrap. We felt so relaxed and pampered by the time we had finished our massages!
We finished at about 11.00am, and were pretty hungry because we hadn't had breakfast before we went. We had a slap up brekkie of fried eggs, hash browns, bacon and coffee at a great ...
