We knew going in it was an old, quaint inn with a very pet friendly atmostphere. With that said, we didn't expect a heavy dog urine smell at the front entrance, dogs yapping in the hallway at 6 a.m. and generally being unimpressed with the overall condition of our room and the hotel. We were there on our honeymoon and supposedly reserved one of the nicest rooms in the hotel yet were not greeted with any special reception or offered any thoughtful amenities/services. We weren't expecting special treatment but at $500/night you expect service and luxury and this stay was just OK. If you want privacy, serenity and personal service, you need to look elsewhere. Also, Terry's Lounge...ugh...slow service.
