“Only stay here if you're Batty”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

I will start with praises about the home and the gardens, they are both lovely, clean and well maintained. The problem begins in the evening when the bats appear inside the home. There is a colony living in the old chimney, you can hear them in the wall. Myself and 2 girlfriends ran out a total of 12 within a 3 night stay. The owner refused to comp us even 1 night stay, and we learned a valuable lesson that when you stay - you are accepting the conditions. A handyman was sent after the first night and did repair a partially open old ash pan left in the chimney, but not until dark did we realize that they were still finding other openings. We also discovered 2 hanging on the back of a painting. This may be a great opportunity for those who love Halloween and live animal acts.

We feel a deep responsibility to do whatever we can do to preserve the legacy of our property. We have contracted with a pest control company and they have developed the required federally approved program for displacement of the winged varmints from our property. Rest assured we now have a system in place to prevent a re-occurrence of the bat problem .

For over a hundred years, this historic home has been a comfortable and welcome refuge for our guests, and it is our intention to do whatever is required to help sustain the ambiance and hospitality which has for so long been associated with this property. As always, it is our intent to make a stay here a memorable and reaffirming experience for each and every one of our guests.

Lovely house but during our 3 day stay we either chased out or captured 12 bats. Called the manager and they sent someone out, however they did not fix the problem. Have contacted the owner who wants NOTHING to do with it. The owner will not discuss it. During our stay there, other than the call we made to the manager we never saw anyone. There was never anyone who came by to check to see if we needed anything, towels, etc.... I do not recommend this property simply for the reason that the owner is totally uncooperative and does not live there locally. Wonder what the going rate for bat removal is???
