I travel a great deal, and as a single woman, prefer to stay at B & B's for their homey quality and the feeling of safety. This was the worst B & B experience I've ever had. Indifferent owners plus a very tired facility make any other option a better choice. Poor mattress and pillow quality (was very glad I'd brought my own pillow to use), threadbare towels, holes in bathroom ceiling, no bath mat, huge water and mildew stains, torn shower curtain. Room too dim to read - 40 watt bulbs?
It's August, and the Christmas decorations are still up? No 8 a.m. coffee, as promised - I'm sorry, it's not much to ask to have a pot of coffee available for your guests to help themselves.
Richard was pleasant, but Hazel was bizarrely hostile, unpleasant, and snarled and snapped at every opportunity. Breakfast was tasty, starting with fresh fruit including mango, but the grits were stone cold and coffee tasted peculiar enough to not have a second cup.
All in all, a pretty shocking experience for me, and a downer at the end of a long trip on the road.
I was delighted - and relieved - to find another inn after just a single night's stay here. Seems to me if your heart is not in being an innkeeper, it's best to not pretend to try. Passive-aggressive behavior and attitude just can't be disguised.
