First the mitigating factors - it was early season and the owner had been called away on jury service. When we arrived, there was no-one to welcome us but a note on the office door directing us to our room. It quickly became apparent that we were the only people staying. There are no tea/coffee making facilites in the rooms and, as there was no-one around, we decided to go in search of a hot drink elsewhere. As we left, the owner's mother arrived with ice as the ice machine had broken and told us she would cook breakfast in the morning. The room itself was OK but there was a problem with hot water in the morning. We had to run the shower for a long time before any hot water emerged. When it did turn hot it did not last long enough for a reasonable length shower which had to be completed in cold water. We reported this at breakfast - apparently it is a new system so we suggested that it may need some adjustment to deliver an amount of hot water to satisfy most guests. The sweet potato pancakes for breakfast were not to our taste - too sweet on their own to add maple syrup but needing something to moisten them. Readers will have to make up their own minds whether we were just unlucky but I could not recommend it based on our experience.
