I was a member of a wedding party that held their ceremony at the McFarland Inn this last weekend and was appalled by the reception we recieved from the innkeeper. My first inkling that she was not the most service oriented person came when myself, the bride, and the other bridesmaid were preparing to go to the Inn to to get dressed and ready for the ceremony. Naturally we were excited to get started with the preparations so we found oursleves arriving approximately ten minutes early. The bride took one look at the clock and was immediately concerned because the innkeeper had scared her with her open disdain for those that are early rather than punctual. We circled the block a few times to kill time and finally as the clock struck one decided that it would be ok to stage our entrance. One thing however, we forgot to synchronize our watches with the innkeepers and upon knocking on the door we were greeted by a woman that was obviously taking issue with the fact that we had arrived two minutes early according to her clock.
The escapade did not end there, the innkeeper was quite disconcerted that we walked around to take a look at the accomodations in order to check up on those final details and to make any last minute decisions regarding the guests arrival and seating. She was openly hostile to a couple of the guests and disdainful towards the wedding party.
Needless to say we did what we came there to do and then hightailed it outta there to the reception hall. I can only imagine the karmic implications of being such a difficult person to a bride on their wedding day, however, I still felt it my responsibilty to write a review and to warn all B&B goers out there that this is hardly the Inn for you if you are the type that is attracted to B&B's for that extra special personal touch.
