We stayed at this location for a family wedding. After entering the home, I was overcome by the odor of mothballs. The décor is Victorian on steroids....so if that is you thing you will love all the lace, flowers, and pastel colors.
There was no bottled water of any kind or any kind of welcoming atmosphere when we arrived. It was decent, but nothing special that most people are looking who frequent B and B.
By far, the most distinctive aspect of the B and B was the trains. The tracks are located about 1/8 of a mile for the house. Every 20 minutes (we timed them!) a train goes by...loudly blaring their horn. This includes the hours between 10pm and 6am! ALL.NIGHT.LONG. At 2:30am I knew I could not sleep. I was forced to go into Lawrence to stay at the Hampton Inn.
Unfortunately, the wedding party was staying at the location and some did not sleep AT ALL. How sad that the mother of the bride was completely exhausted the next day for the wedding. When asking the owner about the trains, he said it wasn't a big deal because most guests are staying because of a wedding and won't come back to repeat a stay. For the owner, this seems to be a pretty cold statement. We wish we would have been forewarned about the trains,....
