My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday evening in April. The room was lovely (Gatsby) as were the grounds, but that was not enough to charge $250 a night (low season).
The Innkeeper greeted us and showed us around, but after that he was nowhere to be found. He said he would set up a dinner table for us that evening since we ordered in, but all he did was hand us two very dirty wine glasses and walk away. No cutlery, no plates. There was no hot water that evening and again the next morning (we let it run a good 5 minutes). We were told that breakfast was served between 8-10am but when we went downstairs at 9:15am for breakfast and to ask about the water, the Innkeeper again was gone. We waited 30 minutes and decided to leave, shower-less, and hit up a diner on our way home.
On Saturday we saw a wedding coordinator showing several couples around. Weddings are clearly their big money maker, they don't care about their weekend patrons. If that's the case, the cost per night should reflect this. Save your money or spend a little more and go somewhere with warm water and a warm breakfast! Very disappointing!
