“Great location, poor maintenance and housekeeping”
Reviewed 28 April 2009

If the rating was for niceness of inn keepers, I'd give them a great rating.

There are several levels of cleaning, with sticky and dirty the worst. This place was sticky and dirty. On checking out, we found that the chair in our room had mouse droppings all over it. I understand that mice are everywhere, but the room looked like it was barely broom cleaned before our arrival. The bathroom was marginally better. I used the fridge to keep some beer, and the door handle was black from dirty hands (white fridge), and sticky along with it. The dining area is gorgeous, but hasn't seen a broom or vacuum in a long time. It's hard to eat when you question the level of cleanliness.

The breakfast was Spartan, but they did warn us of this. The coffee was served in tea cups, and didn't even get my heart to start pumping. But there's a great coffee shop a mile away.

This is one of several ventures the owners run, and their heart is obviously not in it. The grounds are unkempt, and most of the outbuilding doors were wide open. The gardens and location should make this a favorite return destination, but for us it will be a memory.

Spring Cove Manor: We had a great time as a family staying in one big room! Our room had a private entrance which was perfect for late night arrivals back to the house. The kayaking tour was invigorating, three hours on swan lake with wild birds and beautiful scenery.
Our prior experiences at B&B spoiled us with fabulous breakfasts, here is where the "okay" part comes in. Breakfast consisted of fruit & muffins, coffee & juice. We were expecting
( or should I say used to ) a food experience for breakfast. Oh well. The "some problems" part was an issue with cleaning. On the surface the room looked clean, however, if you lost something under the bed or dresser, you found out otherwise. If you're not big on breakfast & aren't "picky" about clean- You'll love this out of the way place on the water.

Stayed at Spring Cove Manor and looked forward to a clean bed and breakfast. The location was quiet and private but the place was disappointing. The well water had a rackish smell (we couldn't take a shower), no TV in the bedrooms, the rooms furnished flea market style. There was one TV in the living room with rabbit ear antenna so you can imagine how blurry the reception was. Breakfast was muffins and fruit and the next day, the same muffin plate including the halves that other people had left. We can't get over how they could charge $130. per night for what should have been $70. per night.
