It can be difficult to review a B&B, because you wish your hosts much success and all the best. Because my husband is French and I grew up in France, I was looking forward to staying in a home kept by a Swiss couple. I couldn't wait to sample the "Swiss breakfast spread" and looked forward to what I thought would be a wonderful mini vacation in South Dakota. The setting of the Bed and Breakfast itself couldn't be more beautiful, and the home is spacious and lovely and superbly decorated with art and souvenirs from, I am sure, the hosts' travels around the world. Sadly, we never were really shown around, nor invited to sit and chat. I know that summer is an extremely busy tourist season, and on top of that they had friends/family visiting, which I'm sure took up much of their time and attention. I would have loved, however, a little treat or cookie or beverage on the patio in the evenings... There were drinks, (soft drinks, beer and water) chips, chocolate bars etc. (for sale) by the front door, but that seemed impersonal to me. We stayed in the "African" room for the first two nights, which was a little of a squeeze for the 3 of us. The last night we stayed in the "Mediterranean" room, which was bigger and had more light and which we liked a lot better (except for the water pressure in the shower). Breakfasts were exactly as described on the web site, but I found myself longing for something a little more decadent or sweet, and am not a big fan of cheese and meat in the mornings. We did have some type of egg dish all three days, but always savory. The friends we made there raved about the fruit cobbler they had been served on the morning before we arrived, but sadly we didn't get to taste any of Christine's sweeter cooking. My husband, who is a tea drinker, but never makes a fuss about anything, was not asked if he wanted anything else when he declined the coffee being passed around. I guess the bottom line was that our stay was nice, but we were not made to feel special or pampered.
