Chuck is a total creep and very, very, rude!.
Our bathroom smelled like urine leading me to believe that the throw rugs are not washed after each guest. The room itself "smelled" like an old closet. No cups in the bathroom and only 2 towels. Shampoo in a large decorative bottle with no top! Trying to be "green" ! No lotion or conditioner , only a "free sample" of deodorant!
Breakfast was mediocre-not like the lavish spreads most all other b&b's I've been to have had. Little "fake" creamer cups and cheap paper napkins. "Green" would have been fabric napkins and real cream on the table for coffee. "Green" or "cheap"!?
No appetizers in the evening or afternoon tea. Railings are all weak and could be quite dangerous if an elderly person or a heavy person used it for support esp the one on the back porch! Paint is peeling .
He "trashed" former guests because they were up late partying on their vacation and he had to clean up the empty beer cans! At the prices he charges for terrible service and just OK breakfast a little noise shouldn't have been a bother !
The Inn itself is quite beautiful as are the gardens. The woman who works for him is a real sweetheart! The Gazebo Room and the Opal room are esp beautiful.
Hard to rate the service as we were afraid to ask for anything!
Oh--the "snack jar" had a bunch of stale and some outdated chips and crackers in it! Yummy!
My terrible review is based primarily on on the Inn Keeper and his rudeness. I also heard in town that he is the "head" of the Chamber of Commerce in Hunter! I don't know how that could possibly have happened!
