“Rude, Rude, Rude!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2007

Rude hosts, small smelly rooms, cheap yard sale furnishings. Avoid this place, plenty of much better choices nearby.

Stayed July 2007

Gross, gross, gross would describe the "suite" accomodations. Had I not been booked at the B&B for a family affair I would have IMMEDIATELY changed my reservations. We were all duped by the great website- trust me, there is a reason there are no pictures of the "suite". It consists of old furniture covered with old moldy-smelling blankets, games that are broken and a filthy refridgerator. Speaking of the fridge, I asked if it could be plugged in and Carol, the host, wanted to know why I couldn't just use the fridge in the main dining room. Carol also made sure to tell me to tip the cleaning girls (never saw one, in fact my room was never cleaned and I never received fresh towels during my two night stay). There was, however, someone else's tee shirt under my bed... If you would like to use the pool YOU MUST REMOVE THE COVER BY YOURSELF... and of course, you need replace the cover when you are finished. The "stargazing spa" is a hot tub outside- to get to it and the pool you must walk through a dirty, dingy utility type room (filled with dirty onions from the garden when I was there). NOT a good stay. We kept holding out for a fabulous breakfast- it was not great, just OK. All in all, I was highly disappointed and felt I paid WAY TOO much for the accomodations. Couldn't wait to get home and take a shower. Yuck! No more B&B's for this girl.

Carol the owner solicits for tips the entire time you are there.
She has Rules & notes stuck up all over the place like, 'please take short showers'. For $180 a night, I will take as long a shower as I want. Plus, one HAS to take a longer shower since there's NO water pressure to speak of.

What does she think we would tip for? She's the OWNER. And I don't believe for a minute that she has 'cleaning girls' (she mentions that every chance she gets)

The wastebaskets aren't even emptied every day, much less the sheets changed so what woud I tip for??

Rooms are dirty & beds are old & gross. Stuff under the beds too, definately not cleaned.

The Pool area is absolutely disgusting. Dirty windows. One has to walk through a cluttered basement-like room to access pool. Very strange & not public friendly.

The suite she talks of on the website is a hoax. It is a shoddy addition with old smelly furniture in it among other things covered with tablecloths. And she layers rugs to cover stains. Absolutely gross.

Unfortunately I will never stay at another B&B again.... Hotel chains here I come.
