7 Willows Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 6 Hillsdale B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Stayed for two nights recently and unfortunately can't recommend it. It is nicely decorated, kind of a rustic modern decor. But the problem is it is not well run or maintained. During our entire time we only saw the owner/host once or twice getting into her car going somewhere. She did tell us that she would not be able to make us breakfast during our stay, and she did discount our price. But we still didn't see her beyond breakfast. It is not typically a big deal for us, but coming back in the evening we couldn't even see where we were walking when going to the front door. There were no lights on anywhere and it just felt abandoned. The other issue was cleanliness, the sheets and cover on our bed were covered in dog hair and there were stains. We were not able to find anyone to help us so we went to one of the empty rooms and took a duvet from there. We also spent a lot of time killing various bugs because the windows were not sealed, and the doors were very difficult to open/closed, creating a lot of noise when doing so.

Hoping some more effort gets put into these things as it could be a very nice place, but given that the place appears to be up for sale that might help explain.

We stayed at Christina's 7 Willows B&B, after we had received a recommendation from Hawthorne Valley Farm, which we were planning to visit. We hadn't been upstate in farm country, and thought a weekend trip for my birthday would be a good start.

I can safely say this was one of the best birthday gifts I ever had. What a wonderful treasure of a house! Everything was so well cared for, the rooms were beautiful and cosy, the service was great (Christina had ample recommendations for the area, all of which we used and which exceeded our expectations, such as restaurants and areas to visit). We were traveling with our 3 year old daughter who has allergies, which was no problem at all. Our girl quickly felt at home in the house, which is unusual for her. It was like staying at a good friend's place - we felt by the time we left that we were indeed good friends, even despite the fact that Christina was conscious of giving us our needed privacy, even before we knew it.

All in all, a little gem in the area, which certainly has inspired us to do more visits to the area and stay again. A weekend turned out to be not enough. Highly recommended - which we have already done to friends.
