I stayed one night on July 12, 2013. I have stayed at many B&Bs in my 53 years. Upon arrival, Dot immediately greeted me in the parking lot and gave me the history of the house and a tour, a very nice touch. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, best French Toast I ever had! I enjoyed the small feeder stream to the mill on the property, many frogs in same. Property outside the rooms could use some TLC, found many spider webs/dirt smudges under the roof section of the front house porch. I so badly wanted to take a power washer myself and clean that area off. Front sign for the property near the street had greenish/brown mildew on it. Outside entrance to my room had dirt on steps/more spider webs on banister. Saw some weeds growing near walkways, many of bushes/trees/landscaping plants overgrown, sticks and branches in yard. So not the best B&B I have stayed at, but a good one. Nice pool on property, rare for a B&B. Did not meet/see any ghost. Great bicycle trail nearby. Many historical street information signs in area. Charles City nearby, but not really a city at all (few gov't and historical buildings), one restaurant.
