Soooooooo We spent a weekend here in 2006 and were in love. We stayed in a mini sweet in the barn area.
This weekend, we had a gift certificate to stay, did not get to pick own room and was not pleased with a few factors.
Check in time was 3:00 pm. We got there at 3:14 and the office was closed. We called the number on the door and the owner( I assume) answered. He said he tried to call me and my phone was disconnected( the one I was talking to him on) and he thought we were not coming. 14 minutes after check in time?
He came down and opened the door, and there was no heat in the building. It was freezing.
He took us to our room and it was getting warm in there. The decor was old, bedspread tattered, wallpaper peeling. The light over the jacuzzi was burnt out and there were water stains on the ceiling. No cable and no continental breakfast as indicated on website. He told us there was a Dunkin Donuts down the road.
The best part of our stay was the dinner we had down the street..
Would I go back? Don't think so..
So sad to think they would let it go like that.. I understand it was off season, but if you are going to run a business you need to make ALL your customers happy.. not just during tourist season.
