The Inn was chosen based on ratings and reviews. Bruce Hamstra, owner-operator, appears to have fallen on some lean times as the property is ill-kempt, in need of maintenance and updating both outside and inside. The property/structure is overgrown with vines and the landscaping needs much attention. The experience was disappointing in that such a lovely property has been allowed to deteriorate to such a state. Bruce is direct, somewhat bossy, and not the congenial host one would expect to find in this line of work. His idea of "clean" and ours are at different levels. We tried to overlook the lack of attention to detail and endure the stay rather than enjoy it. Some things were okay but overall disappointing. There must be better choices than the one we made and it will be our first and last visit to this particular location. We ventured to another B&B after leaving the Mansion Inn and the experience was much better with a clean and well-maintained property, warm hospitality from owners and fellow-guests, great food and atmosphere. Stay here at your own risk.
