If no one lives on the property why is there a cat living there causing potential problems for persons. Guests are not house guests but paying customers and it is not reasonable for a paying customer to be restricted from areas accessed by other paying customers just because of a cat.
I called ahead and was given separate and comfortable and really rather lovely accommodations in an area away from the main house. Checking in I saw the litter box next to the front entry in the common room. I was told Internet was sketchy so I could use the common room computer. No, I couldn't because of the cat. I was told I could frequent the kitchen. No, I couldn't because the cat's food and water dishes were in the kitchen. I was told the cat would be kept out of the breakfast room during breakfast so I could eat with my group. If the cat had been in the breakfast room then the allergens were in the breakfast room. I ate outside and there was cat hair on the cushions to the patio furniture.
I'm going into detail here to let others know the situation with the cat. If the cat is not the pet of someone who lives there it would be better for paying customers if it became a personal house pet and not part of the B&B charm.
Overall, the inn was lovely. The casita was clean and had many ammenities for an extended comfortable stay. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was well prepared. The location was perfect for the purpose of our stay. I was embarrassed that I had to cause a fuss with my group and not be able to meet and dine with them.
Thank you for all your efforts to help, but I would advise those with cat allergies to stay elsewhere. It is a health issue that I do not think the owner truly understands.
