I usually only offer advice for positive trips, but this was so bad I had to share. We stayed here during the summer and were very uncomfortable from the moment we arrived. The room was not level (the floor actually sloped) and was very noisey and dirty. I found a sock under the bed....ugh! The innkeepers were not very friendly at all. The staff in the kitchen were much more friendly than our hosts. Breakfasts the first day was runny eggs and the whole time we tried to eat there was a cat that kept jumping up on our table. We later realized it was the innkeepers cat. The second day we went out for breakfast (great breakfast at Chicken or the Egg). Also, the inkeepers wanted to charge us for using the bathroom on our checkout date. Totally awkward and uncomfortable interactions....Unfortunately, the inkkepers and the cat skeeved me & I won't ever be back.
