My husband and I were not very pleased with our overpriced room at the Newcastle Inn. Julie, the owner, was very nice but the room we chose was not worth the $262 fee/night.
The room smelled very moldly, the floor needed to be refinished and the entrance to the room needed some paint. The cars zooming past the inn all day were very noisy and made leaving the inn very difficult.
Breakfast was served from 8-9 even on Sunday. Most B&B's give guests at least a two hour time limit. All tables in the dining hold 2-4 people limiting conversation between guests. One thing we always enjoy is meeting people from all over the country and this was limited with the table configuration. The food served was just average, not the gourmet food served by the previous owners.
There are many other places to stay in this area for much less money. I would not choose this place again and would not recommend it.
