A weekend inspired by Downton Abbey will include dinner and an etiquette talk which takes you from the dressing gong to after-dinner chocolates while everyone takes a turn at being both guest and footman and the intricacies of proper Edwardian (and modern) dinner etiquette are explained, all in a dining room that’s been the scene of elegant dinners since before the Titanic went down. Join us and you’ll never hear Lady Mary say that you’re not very fastidious about doing things properly. There will be a proper English afternoon tea at which you may come in the “character” of any character, though that’s entirely optional as is dressing the part. Breakfast will be just what you would expect with an English buffet on the sideboard and toast in a proper silver toast rack. Optional activities include fly fishing (though it’s not Scotland), horseback riding as either a trail ride or lesson (sorry ladies, sidesaddle is not possible), crewel embroidery lessons (on a Downton inspired pillows if you like), and cooking lessons (chocolate truffles) with someone much less grumpy than Mrs. Patmore. There will also be games and puzzles to enjoy throughout the weekend. The weekend rate including afternoon tea, the etiquette talk dinner, and two nights’ lodging with breakfast is $275 single or per person double. Join us and find the answer to everyone’s favorite question: What is a week-end?
