We were very disappointed by our stay even though the house is charming and location pleasant. We told innkeeper we would arrive around 7 p.m. and were given code to enter -- didn't realize innkeeper doesn't live on premises. There was no note, maps of area, or other welcoming materials, including no drinks (not even water), no cups, no snack or fruits as we've usually had when staying in B&B. A cook arrived at 8:30 a.m. to prepare breakfast -- we'd been up since 7 and were eager to get to furniture shopping. Breakfast was not bad, but was pretty minimal (strawberries one day, no fruit the other day, no fresh baked goods, etc.)
Stayed 2 nights, never met innkeeper. We stayed with 2 children and a baby in the Lily Pad. Beds were old but fair condition. It was average heat for summer in North Carolina, but the air-conditioning didn't reach third floor which had a fan that was very loud and dangerously wobbly. We sent note after we left to ask if this level of service was usual and to point out fan/air-conditioning problems. Only response was delayed additional charge for the baby, even though no bedding (slept in parent's bed), towels, or breakfast had been provided!
