This was my first time in a bed and breakfast and my first time in a clothing optional resort. We also had the benefit of being the only guests for the weekend, so we were able to spend a lot of time with the new owners to get to know them.
Upon our arrival, we were both shown to our room. It was very nice and spacious. Of course, we wanted to see all of the other rooms and get a full tour of the place. All of the rooms are very nice. They all have different characters. Some of the rooms have their own entrances to the pool area. Other rooms are part of the original farm house and open into the house. All of the rooms are clean and smoke smell free.
We also learned the house rules. They were all perfectly acceptable and rational. I didn't find them at all restrictive. In fact, I would appreciated all guests following the same rules because they help make the experience enjoyable for everyone. This includes smoking rules (only outside), clothing rules (no nudity inside the public areas of the house...this is appreciated when guests are trying to eat), and...hmm...let's say "activities" which are not allowed in public areas (again, there are some things I just don't want to see).
The new owners are making improvements to the place as well. They are updating the decor and working on the landscaping. They're keeping the place up and making it even cleaner and nicer. Now, I might add, this is not a new, fresh hotel. This is a B&B. You should set your expectations as such. You are a guest in someone's home, literally. The new owners live there YEAR ROUND. That being said, the new owners went out of their way to make us feel like we were welcome. We both felt like we were close friends and family by the time we checked out. When was the last time you were able to say that?
In summary, we felt like we had found a home away from home. The new owners are our new friends, not just the innkeepers. We're definitely going back whenever we need to be with family and need a relaxing weekend away from the city.
