DO NOT STAY HERE! First, our room. The lodge is split between a main building which seemed more bed and breakfasty, and an annex... We were stuck in the annex. If you're lucky enough to have a room in the front of either of these buildings, you would enjoy a lovely view. However, not only were we in the annex -- which was more or less like a cheap ugly college dorm, we had a room in the back. Room #21. It overlooked the neighbor's backyard resplendent with a trampoline and little kid yard toys scattered about. The guy who brought us to the room when I questioned him about getting one in the front said that this was better than some other double room he could have given me because there was a view... a view? Maybe if I hung my head out the window and looked left. There was no view. The room itself had 2 uncomfortable, creeky twin beds, a desk and a side table. If there were not a closet, there wouldn't have been enough floor space to put my luggage. The room was THAT small. As was the bathroom. So basically, this was not a room you wanted to lounge about in -- at all. And since it was too warm (with no A/C) to not sleep with the windows open... We had to endure bugs as the back of the house (where we were) backed up onto woods. Mosquitos were plentiful INSIDE. The next morning at breakfast, the tables are assigned v. being first come, first serve. Our table was off to the side despite a big window with a great view and a 2-top table under that window sitting empty. So I switched the room placards to be able to sit there. I suppose I could have "asked" to have them switched... but there was nobody around to do that. So instead of being greated by the proprietor lady with a "good morning" as I would expect from a B&B... I was instead questioned about moving the tables and told I wasn't a nice person for doing so. Had this rude woman provided a reasonable explaination as to why the tables were reserved as such, I would have very likely moved back. Instead she was judgemental and told me I'm not a nice person. Last I checked, my money was as good as everybody else's in the room and I told her that since I had no opportunity to enjoy the view, i wanted to sit there... she stomped off in indignation. I was absolutely beside myself that a person in the hospitality world, let alone a place claiming to be a B&B would treat a customer this way. I would never, ever, ever consider staying here again and have advised Rabbies (whom I was on tour with) to remove this lodge from their preferred locations. Plenty of others in town. I can excuse the crap room with crap view and bugs. I cannot excuse rudeness.
