The main house is a comfortable central gathering place and the grounds are lush with flowers and plants. My room at the Ellerton is darling. Two beds draped in mosquito netting, an armoire with a safe, an open bathroom, magazines, wood floors and natural lighting.
The owner informs me that 24-hour beverage service (water, sodas, beer and cocktails) are included in the price of the stay. I order a beer and it is delivered — in a frosted mug — not five minutes later, accompanied by a bowl of salty, crunchy things they call Bombay mix.
