We have stayed in B&Bs all over the country. I picked this location based on many of the reviews. The breakfasts were indeed wonderful and the hosts were most anxious to make us feel welcome, however this was not up to par. The outside looked like it was fallilng down around our ears. We realize renovation takes time, but it appeared nothing had been done in a significant amount of time. The back porch (over a first floor room) was open to the public felt totally unsafe with spongy floorboards and stagnant water in the gutters. The front porch was bolstered up by scaffolding that had obviously been there a long time. Inside, the two rooms we had to choose from, the wall paper was peeling and the plaster had fallen off the ceiling with the lathe showing. The hostess encouraged us to write a great review which may be why the reviews are confusing compared to the huge need to complete repairs. The price was fairly low, most likely due to staying in a location that needs significant repair.
