I was worried when we first drove up to the Bed & Breakfast & saw a for sale sign in the yard. This Bed & Breakfast was a disappointment. The clutter in the main room one the first floor carries throughout the home. The first room you see upon entering is a messy computer filled room with a young family member playing games the computer with ear plugs in. Not my idea of a welcome. While the home has some fine old qualities, the state of repair leaves much to be desired. We stayed in the Celestial room where the ceiling was cracked, the wall behind the bed was cracked and some pictures were hung there to try & cover up the problem. The window in the bathroom was cracked from top to bottom & a window near the bed had a window unit air conditioner that had clear plastic over the gaps between the window & the unit & the window was screw shut so that it could not be opened. The plastic also had black mold growing on it. When you look up at the ceiling in the corners there were low hanging cobwebs. The room was a very nice size with a private bath but there were so many things in the room that the openness disappeared. The one nice touch in the room was an electric corner fireplace. When traveling we prefer to stay at a Bed & breakfast but this one is off the list.
