My wife and i spent a long weekend at Red Mountain House. The rooms are spacious and clean and very comfy. Besides the fire place, the under floor heating, heated bathroom and the huge four poster bed there are the little creature comforts that make your experience more satisfying like the sherry and chocolates by the fire place and the little blankets left folded on the chairs to keep you just that little warmer while you snuggle up by the fire sipping on your sherry.Thank you for a lovely weekendCraig and Jo-Anne Varner
