Antietam Overlook Farm is everything the previous reviews said...Great location, rustic charm, comfortable,friendly staff and generous amenities, but a couple of things leave a sour taste in my mouth. The first is the breakfast. We were told 9ish, which is late for those of us who like to get up early and go, but we could live with that except by 9:30 there wasn't any indication that we would have breakfast anytime soon.All the guests were left waiting in the great room. We were finally served and breakfast service was over about an hour later. Way too late.
The second thing really bothers me. I have been to inns and b&bs where there is an envelope discreetly left if one wishes to leave a gratuity and I do so if I feel the service is exceptional. Here there was an envelope which asks us to remember the housekeeper, breakfast server and chefs/innkeeper. It says that gratuities are a substantial part of their income. Really? Shouldn't the innkeeper pay them a decent wage so that they do not have to ask their guests for money? Include a service charge if you must, but don't ask me to provide for their income.
