We arrived and were met with a very hurried innkeeper. She said she had someplace else to be and couldn't spend much time with us which is fine as I understand she has a life. But she took us to our room and showed us around explaining that we can only use one or two lights at a time as using too many will kick the circuit breakers and she will have to come out and fix it. Then she ran out the door. We were unloading our luggage and heading to the room when she came running back with another couple and said she gave us the wrong room and we'd have to move. She yelled all of this across the front yard so we went upstairs and moved our stuff to the "other" room which was much smaller and no where as nice as the one she had taken us to. I stood in the shower for about four minutes with the water on hot and it didn't warm up at all. It was ice cold. I really needed a shower so I started to bathe and finally about another four minutes later into the shower it warmed up a little bit. There are only one other couple in the house so I'm not sure why there is no hot water. This is the nicest place in town as the only other option is an old motel but I'd suggest driving a few miles to another town and staying elsewhere. Most B&Bs have coffee or tea out for guests and there's nothing available here or maybe there is and she was too busy to tell us. She asked what time we would like breakfast and we said 8am as we have a meeting to attend at 9am and she said well maybe 8:30 or 9. Just not great service like other B&Bs weve visited.
