Went for a romantic B&B experience...not what we bargained for. The woman who showed us around was warm and friendly but upon entering the room, we were disappointed. We stayed in the Boat House in the most expensive room they had (almost $300 with tax) upstairs with the sailing theme. Views were great but the room was very small. Credit to the photographer they used, because the brochure shows the room we stayed in and with the special lens they used to photograph it, it looks HUGE. The room had a distinct smell, had to open all windows right away to air it out. It seems to be from the 1980's and never updated. The bedding seems old and a bit tired, the sails tacked to the ceiling are stained and permanently block the entertainment area from the bed (including the fireplace). The home made furnishings seem like they are "do it your self" weekend types of projects that don't quite measure up to the price of the room. We had a "home made" king bed made from sail masts, part of a boat and what seemed to be a home made frame. The bed creaked, popped and groaned LOUDLY with the slightest movement and we literally could not sleep. The bed is built so high that it is hard to get in and out of, even for my 6'2" husband. There are little sets of stairs to get in and out of, but look out if it is dark in there and you are trying to get down from the bed on those little stairs! Also, no shower, just a bath tub out in the room, so no privacy for getting cleaned up; just sort of out there on display whether you want to be or not. Also the window coverings are heavy home made canvas sections and hang up on hooks; so to see the view you have lift up the whole thing above your head and drop into a "trough" on the floor. Reverse that process to hang back up. After laying awake on the noisy bed until 2am, we desperately needed sleep and decided to leave; we were told NOT to call the front desk after 9pm unless it was an emergency so we tried to leave the keys in the main lobby in the basket marked "check out keys", upon leaving the keys in the basket, we could not lock the door when exiting (which we were told never to leave unlocked!) and had to call the manager. We were not asked if there was a problem (at 3am at that point) just told curtly to just leave the key in the room. So we did.
