Expensive but worth it for a unique experience.

Pros: It was not pretentious and set in a nice garden with lovely lake views. Easy walk (uphill) into township.
Great food but wine was expensive with nothing under $85. Bathroom lacked bench space to put one's toiletries but heated floor was lovely.
