“Tacky”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2009

This is a great idea, great location but it needs updating. It could with a little TLC be a classy inn but as it is tacky would be a better classification. Our caboose had cobwebs galore mainly in the cupola but also on door frames. The wall sconces appear not to have been cleaned for awhile with bugs in them. Our caboose had a private deck that hadn't been swept off prior to our arrival or during our stay. The breakfast lacked originality, I've had better continental breakfasts. The private boat dock had half the lights burned out. Other than check in the service was marginal.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2009

We booked the Casablanca caboose for two nights. Our check-in was quick and pleasant. Once in our room, we discovered that our refrigerator was not working. I headed back to the office (there are no phones in the cabooses) and notified Peggy, who is one of the owners, and she responded immediately. She put a new fridge in our room, and we were up and running.

Each room has a different theme. Some rooms have spa tubs, others have a special sitting area where you can look at the lake. The room we had was neat and tidy but maybe just a little more deep cleaning would made it nicer. I know they are updating each caboose and look forward to trying one of those on our next visit.

Breakfast was such a pleasure. It is served in the dining room between 9am - 10am which is nice, since, who wants to get up early on their day off for breakfast? Tony and Peggy, the owners of the b&b, both cook in the kitchen and wait on their guests' every need. Better hosts I don't think you can find. They are happy to give you ideas on things to do in the area, as well as making sure you are enjoying your stay. There is a pool and they have bicycles for their guests to use.

They have a boat dock across the street so you can go out and sit on the lake and enjoy the view. There are nice lights out there even for the evening stroll, which my husband and I did after dinner.

The grounds are pretty and well maintained. A couple of the rooms have their own decks with chairs. But if you don't have one of those, they do have chairs placed throughout so you can enjoy the "park" setting.

I do want to make sure that if you plan on visiting the Featherbed, please keep in mind that this is a "value" B&B. It has been around for a while and you can tell that some things need to be updated. BUT, the beds are fabulous and what you do get for the price makes this well worth a try. I know we'll be back, and you have to try this place at least once.

This is our second stay here at Featherbed R.R.
We wish the finest for the new owners who are very nice folks.
On another site with reviews we read about them serving a new Thanksgiving Coffee. This is a good thing.
Also new housekeepers are in the works too..This we found was really needed during our stay in "Wine Country" caboose..
We look forward to another stay here to see the improvments.
The big Clearlake was kinda smelly this fall..
