We are no strangers to "rustic" inns, so we were eager for a nice authentic Columbia Gorge stay. However, the dirty dishes in the kitchen, the mildew smell and the less-than-clean coffee/tea supplies in the room really put us off. The owners didn't give us much information when we arrived (they just escorted us to the cottage and left), but they were way too friendly during breakfast, dominating the conversation. They never asked if I would prefer something else to drink (I drink decaf coffee) - so I just sat there with an empty cup while they talked about themselves. Our whole stay was very disappointing, especially when we expected it to be one of the highlights of the trip. My only compliment would be the skylights in the cottage - very pretty.
