Editorial review:

Everything about this beautiful resort is praised, from its gorgeous grounds to the staff that bends over backwards for you. John and Jackie Kennedy once honeymooned here. The attractive cottages are tucked away and the food is great. It's expensive here, but it's worth it after the recent renovation.
