We went to The Inn at Vaucluse Spring a few years ago, and it was perfect. The food was incredible, the service was like staying with an old friend, and the buildings and grounds were beautiful. Neil, the chef, grows much of the herbs and produce she uses for dinner, which was one of the 10 best meals I've ever had. The building we stayed in had a common room with a fireplace and lots of comfy chairs. There is an old mill and a lovely pond. All this, and it's really not that much more expensive than a good hotel.
