My fiance and I came here to get married in September, and although the house is beautiful, the overall experience was rather dissapointing. The room was very nice, and stocked with food and drinks at no extra charge which was great, but the bed was very squeaky, and since the inn is pretty close to the road, there was the constant sound of cars humming by.
The wedding itself was very quaint, and they did a nice job with the cake and bouquet, but they were supposed to play music and didnt, so I never got to dance with my husband. They also had told us that we should allot 2 hours for the ceremony when in reality it took 45 minutes, and therefore all of our guests were sitting around twittling their thumbs for over an hour until we could leave for our dinner reservations.
My biggest complaint however was the lack of communication. Although when you actually do finally get to talk to either Peggy and Bill they are very nice, getting them to either answer the phone or call you back is like winning the lottery, and got to be very frustrating. I had to call numerous times for various reasons and only once did someone actually pick up the phone, the other times I left messages and usually ended up having to call back a day or two later because no one called me back. This continued even after our stay when I called back to see if we had left something there and asked for a return call either way and never got one.
Overall, I would say that if I had to do it over again, I may have chose somewhere else to get married, but if your just looking for a nice getaway for a weekend Angels Watch would be very nice.
