We have had the real deal in amazing B&Bs, and this is not one. At $140 a night, this was not worth the stay. The high ratings attracted us, and yes the house is nice (if a little kitchy) and we enjoyed using the bicylces, but the hosts have clearly been at this too long regarding level of service. Other guests seemed not to notice the corn syrup instead of maple syrup and the cheap sausage patties, however we weren't impressed. Prior to reserving, we inquired as to whether they would be able accommodate my vegan diet, and said they would "figure it out," which they did by providing me with soy milk for coffee. Otherwise, the hostess asked me on the fly if oatmeal was okay (I asked if I could have the strawberries that were on the waffles but none came with my oatmeal). Unfortunately I couldn't eat it due to the extreme saltiness (perhaps she used salt instead of sugar to season it?). We debated how to address this and decided not to say anything although on the 2nd morning, Angie made me fruit and I was very appreciative. I would stay elsewhere if you are looking for the real deal.
