We changed our plans to stay at a MO winery due to the lateness of the day and ended up looking via our smart phone internet for a B&B close by. We discovered the Dickey House was close by and being it was a Monday night, had no problem getting a room. The house is lovely, although not in the best part of a very small town. The train mentioned below was not a problem as we stayed on the far side of the house in one of the cottages. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. The breakfast presentation was very attractive and the food was delicious. Unfortunately my husband is more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so he did not care for the selection. The hostess was very kind and cooked him up some scrambled eggs with sausage. The eggs were runny, so he still wasn't satisfied. The room was pleasant and spacious upon the first appearance. The hostess had said on the phone that it had been recently redone. Attention to detail would have made this a five star rating. Although the bed was comfortable, for the price of the room, I would have expected luxurious bedding and coverings. The paint job was just plain sloppy in a lot of places. The tiles were not finished properly. It felt like the contractors did not finish a lot of their work. It was clean for the most part. I believe the rug could have been shampooed. The jets on the tub did not appear clean, it might have been hard water staining, but after watching a program on HGTV, I cleaned them out myself before I used the tub. The fixtures could have been updated and newer for a remodel job. We had light shinning in our bedroom window at night that could have been fixed by a light-blocking drape. Very nice stay, but as we have the opportunity to stay in lots of places, we felt for the price, the details were just overlooked.
