We turned up after a 6 hour drive to be told that the hotel had been taken over and that our booking had been cancelled back in August. We were not made aware of this. We were told that they had cancelled people's bookings as they got more money of other people they had booked in. They did however assist...

Three weeks before my trip to New Orleans, Five Continents cancelled my November reservation. The House Manager cited that they came under new ownership and would be operating as a guest house. She also said that they no longer had access to the credit card system used to process my deposit. She offered to send me back my refund via...

She explained that they would give us vouchers for a nearby restaurant for breakfast. What I didn't realize...

We stayed in the Asian suite, a nice and spacious room with access to a balcony. Everything was well kept and clean. The innkeeper Suzi made us feel right at home, she was always helpful and full of good recommendations. Her breakfast was stunningly good, a perfect start into the day!!

“The Cottage offers the greatest privacy and has a wonderful porch for reading, enjoying a glass of wine, or just relaxing. It is not a part of the main house, although you have a key to the main house for entering for breakfast. Visit their website for pictures.”
