My wife and I recently stayed at this B&B. Unfortuantely this is not going to be a good review!! From the very beginning of the process there were issues. First of all upon booking we should have been clued in by the the fact that the proprietor demanded cash!!!! It cost $336 which was not easily obtained at a moments notice. No Credit Cards!!! No receipt for the payment!!. Upon arrival we were "instructed" to remove our shoes when entering the premises (old braided and ratty rugs on floor..??). This included the room as well as the dinning room.(It was really cold during this stay..so our feet were freezing)!! Upon entering our room we found notes everywhere such as "Pillow shams are decorative don't lay on them." We are mature, professional, adults and were much insulted by some of the ridiculous notes!! There was a space heater to provide heat, which was totally inadequate for the space!! We were soooooo cold all the time!!. In the evening before going to dinner we requested that the heat be turned up. It was colder in the room the next morning, probably around 55 degrees!! Parking.....we asked if we could park our car in her 200 + foot long driveway. The streets were very narrow and we were fearful for our auto. She denied our request, then reluctantly gave in and let us park there after 11:00. The whole house was closed off...the only space we had to use was a tiny breakfast room.There was no sitting area as we have experienced in all of the other B&B's we have stayed in. Oour friends we were visiting (who enjoy B&B's like we do), wanted to see our accomodations...we told them there was no where to sit and enjoy a glass of wine together... Not only were the sheets not changed the bed was not made between nights. We used up all the coffee, and it was not replaced for the next morning!! We requested an early departure breakfast of 8:30 and were told that it could not be accomodated. Breakfast was sparse and simple!!!. The TV is tiny and VERY outdated..with a VERY small and uncomfortable wicker loveseat...lucky to get a couple of channels!! We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts all over the US and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had. We felt like we were a huge INCONVENIENCE to the owner!! Iit was all about what is convenient for HER!! She should not be in the Hospitality/ service industry!! We both own our own businesses, and know about customer seervice!! We felt like all she wanted was our money up front, and once she got that...she could have cared less about us!!! Highly NOT RECOMMENDED.!!!! BE FOREWARNED!!!
