We and several other family members spent Christmas here and had rented several rooms. We were not welcome to use the common room as advertised (we all had to cram into one of the guest rooms to socialize together) and actually felt rather unwelcome in general. It was much more like a European guest house or a hotel than a typical North American bed and breakfast, and was definitely not what we had expected.
The hosts weren't blatantly rude to us but definitely weren't overly friendly either. They were also very noisy early in the morning, and the shared bathroom was rather awkward and not always clean.
