Black Forest Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed 18 December 2008

Owner was very friendly on the phone when we booked. Once we arrived it took us almost 15-20 minutes to even locate her to let her know we were there. She greeted us by hanging out the front door telling us where our room was. There were no keys, no local information, no info on where or when breakfast was, she made no attempt to welcome us.

When we arrived to our room there were about 50-60 dead flies on the floor and another 10 or so on each window sill. The fly problem was ongoing for our entire stay. The first day she sent someone in to vacuum because we requested this. Also we had to request light bulbs for some of the lamps...they were either missing or burnt out.

Although there were hotel size shampoos in the bathroom, they had no shampoo in them. The rooms we stayed in hadn't been dusted. Bed s were very comfortable.

We only saw the owner ( or anyone from the property) when we were trying to check in or when we needed help getting rid of the flies..

View in the distance is nice.

This isn't a bed and breakfast, it's an over priced rustic cabin in the woods. With no hospitality. Not at all a B& B experience.

The Black Forest Bed and Breakfast was a nice getaway in Colorado Springs. We took a group of youth up there for a weekend. I liked how I could almost always get in contact with the owner of the property beforehand and they were great about returning our calls. We went two places: the Homestead House and the Lodge. The Homestead house was nice and clean but there were a few problems: the heat worked really well in some areas and not at all in others- so some froze while others were nice and toasty. Overall, however, it was a nice place to stay.

The Lodge didn't look like it was cleaned. There was food in the microwave and several flies on the floor.

All in all, several members of our group said they liked where we stayed and would like to come back.

We booked this B&B in Sep 2007 and paid our deposit unaware that the Cabin we reserved was on the market for sale.

We were contacted in Dec (owner left a voicemail) and notified that the property had been sold and our reservations were cancelled.

It took a week and a number of phone calls to get a deposit refund.

Apparently the owner was so distraught she waited to tell us...now we are scrambling to find other accomodations.


Terrible way to run a business!!!

In my 24 years of running my B&B I have only once had to cancel a reservation and this was the time.
