I made a direct reservation with Naomi's Inn for a two night stay while I was visiting family in the area. I was very excited about staying there based on the reviews I had read. I have stayed in B & Bs many many times and I have a misgiving about writing negative reviews but feel strongly about my experience there.
The property is nice enough however I did not get the room I requested during my conversation with the proprietor (she had said that would be fine).
I arrived at the Inn the first night and was comfortable enough but the amenities provided are pretty barebone. I asked the proprietor what time breakfast was served and she said 7:00 a.m. I got down to the dining room around 7:30 am to find that breakfast was in two warming pans (one of them was not working). Both had the same contents which looked like some kind of muffin with a sausage of some kind and something else that had peanut butter (and Jelly, I think). It looked very very unappetizing and I would have been really happy with cereal but none was offered. Actually there ws no one there to ask and no indication as how to get in touch with the owner. The coffee was fine.
I went out for the day and returned about 3:30 pm to find out that the B & B was hosting a birthday party that night for a local politician on the deck outside the breakfast room and inside the house. I believe some of the party goers would also be staying at the Inn. I felt like I was captive to the proprietor's plans without any warning. I had expected to be able to have a quiet night at the Inn (perhaps sit outside on the deck and relax) but that was not to be. The house is an older house and noise travels pretty easily. Since I had already paid for my two nights stay, I left the Inn and found other accomodations for that evening at a local hotel at additional cost to me.
All in all, I think the Inn is not very professionally run and I really did not feel welcome - sorry to say this.
