I looked briefly at the negative reviews. The house is circa 1865. A building this age will not be perfect. It will have slightly sloping floors in places, made from irregularly milled boards (most likely milled on site) older, dated wallpaper, maybe dead bugs in the hall lights, etc. In short it is not the Waldolf-Astoria. On the other hand, one does not pay for W-A prices either, but very reasonable, seeing as how it is situated on the town's charming center a few miles from skiing destinations or pleasant hiking on numerous trails. My wife and I found it quiet for sleeping at night, quiet in general, warm enough (in our case cool enough--we like it cool), and the fireplace was inviting. Mike the dog was not a problem for us, and we did not see a cat, let alone on the tables. We did not see any paranormal activity, so if you freak out easily about that sort of thing, don't worry, they keep to themselves. The breakfast was hot and filling. Awesome french toast ( I think it's encrusted in brown sugar that carmelizes), good blueberry pancakes and muffins, and all the fruit and bagels and toast you could want. The omlettes were moist. Fred has a dry sense of humor that some may need to get used to if they take things too literally, but its all in good jest and he and Sandra will give you space if you want it. If your wallet's on a tight leash, but you want comfort, this is the place to be.
