It was very easy to get lost trying to find the Mountain Rose Inn after dusk. It took us 20 extra minutes to get there. When we finally found the place, Mike was not welcoming whatsoever, and made it very clear that it was a supreme inconvenience for him that we were late. He continued to disappoint us with his lack of hospitality throughout the weekend. He actually yelled at me when I knocked on the door to the kitchen to ask him a question! And though there is absolutely no cell phone service in the area regardless of provider, there was no 'guest phone' available to use. And so once again, having to ask to use the private house line, my husband and I were chided for making outgoing calls. The serene grounds on which Mountain Rose Inn stands, and the old home's delicate Victorian decor do not outweigh the awkwardness that my husband and I felt as we moved about the house in our comings and goings. Should you have to walk on eggshells at a B&B? Absolutely not.
