When we arrived we were unimpressed with this bed and breakfast, there were alot of overgrown plants/weeds, It was hot and musty inside and upon check in the air had not been turned on which was promptly turned on.
We did not sleep well at all since the mattresses are so old and sagging, the pillows are so old they are flat and barking dogs early in the morning sparked a skunk to spray and that air was pumped through the inn.
The room was dusty, the furnishings did not resemble a victorian room with an old tv that buzzed and changing channels was difficult, bad remote or batteries were almost dead. There were some nice antique pieces in the room but mixed with non victorian pieces that were not period. It seemed like a thrift store.
Also we were surprised that we had to rent dvds for $2.00 per movie when we have had them free in all other B & B's
So after no sleep we came downstairs to see there was no coffee which was remedied about 10 minutes later, we were also told that there was a shortage of seating and our group could not sit together unless we went outside to the back patio. The breakfast was unappealing at best an egg souffle with chips and salsa.
We were hoping this would be a great stay based on previous reviews however there were so many negative issues here that I could never recommend this place and hopefully the owners will update the rooms/beds/pillows and bedding. At this price having chips and salsa for breakfast is unacceptable.
The owners were friendly and accommodating and we appreciate there kindness towards us.
