Nominee for The Best Valentine Getaway, ROCS WHEC (Channel 10).

And to whom do I owe my debit of gratitude for nominating the Ellwanger Estate B&B as the Best Valentine Getaway?  So you can imagine my surprise when Channel 10 called to report that the Ellwanger Estate had been nominated and was now in the top five! That was a shot in the arm. The competition was stiff and my hat goes off to the winner: Woodcliff Hotel.

So what would I change for the 2017 competition ? Not a thing other than category.

I love the intimacy  of a FOUR room Bed and Breakfast, vs a 236 room hotel, with a golf course, spa, restaurant, fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools.  Oops, I’m forgetting who I am promoting! However we are two different entities. If you are looking for peace, quiet, serenity, romance, charm, in a Downton Abby way with lush gardens, wildlife, and all walking distance to the U or R, College Town, Highland Park and downtown, then I’m your retreat.
