We attended a wedding here and the venue (beautiful renovated barn) was lovely, different and special. The wedding itself was sophisticated and spectacular, as was the barn space and the food and service. It was really a magical experience.
But, sadly, the same cannot be said of the B&B on the property, where we stayed for two nights. The feeling is rustic and the space is charming....but the rooms are badly in need of a good cleaning and update. The amenities are just terrible....esp. for the price charged. The towels in the bathroom are so old, scratchy, threadbare and worn....that the bathroom itself, which is roomy, is a turn off. The owners must know that it does not take too much of an investment to purchase new towels for the rooms. Have they ever heard of the Martha Stewart collection at KMart? GET NEW TOWELS. The extra blanket in the closet....which I took down to cuddle with whilst reading in the wing chair next to the window....was so dirty it was disgusting. Well....the wing chair was dirty too. By the way....reading was no easy feat either as half the light bulbs were out and the room was very dark. The blanket on the bed....also an amenity that could make guests feel good about what they are paying for....was a poly/cotton blanket that was pilled and dirty. What does it cost to invest in some nice down comforters for the beds? The note pad on the desk was literally 5 post-its stapled together. Are you kidding me? Oh....did I mention that there was no housekeeping? Our bed was not made, bathroom was not cleaned....at all in two days. Oh yes....housekeeping did come into the room to bring more terrible towels. Clearly the owners of this property need some help from an experienced hotelier. Or from anyone that travels and knows that some nice amenities is all that is required to make a guest happy....esp. when paying close to $300/night. Please owners....get some help!! This could really be a lovely place!! "Nuff said.
