I wanted to like SparrowHake Affaires, but it ended up being a horrible stay. To be fair, we stayed in the carriage house, so maybe the main house is better. There were FLIES everywhere in the carriage house. I'd say at least 20 hovering around each window. There were also dead flies all over the ground -- my guess is they had sprayed the room earlier (maybe that was the odd smell?), and this is truly the meaning of "dropping like flies." You had to look out for dead flies on the carpet everywhere you walked. I also couldn't sleep because the flies were buzzing so loudly.
The breakfast was quite good, and it was served in the main house. "Mom" takes your orders and it's a nice breakfast buffet.
All in all, just couldn't justify spending $200/night in a fly-infested room. The rooms (without the flies) are nice enough, but not worth the price.
