Although my husband and I found much to like about this B & B--spacious soaring living room, lovely view, tasteful and comfortable furnishings, creative and delicious breakfasts, and gracious hosts--there were several disappointing things about the building and experience. The new custom-designed log lodge, based on the concept of the great Adirondak camp, is accessed by a steep driveway off a 1960s subdivision, and there is no accessible outdoor space other than a porch overlooking the mountains. I hope future plans include landscaping the 2-acre property. Our room had a mountain view, 2 upholstered chairs, nice cherry furniture, 3 operable windows, attractive quilts, and central air with an in-room thermostat, But there was very little room to walk between the massive log beams, the bed, and the chest of drawers. It would help to move the chest to an end wall, find a place to hang the mirror, and add two luggage racks. The bigger problem was the small bathroom with its small shower stall, cheap drugstore shampoo and soap, and one wash cloth and hand towel for for two people. These things rankled because this B & B was not inexpensive and the trip advisor reviews were so overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Our disappointment with Journey's End was magnified by our other B & B experience in Williamstown--at the extraordinary Guest House at Field Farm.
