While traveling, my wife and I enjoy staying at various B&B's instead of the conventional motel/hotels. When we read about all of the good reviews about this place we were really excited. This particular establishment is definitely towards the bottom of our list. The inn keepers were nice enough, but the Schoolhouse made us feel we were back in elementary school again...in a bad way. I have never stayed in a B&B with so many rules. Aside from tiptoeing around the place we were informed that we could not run the tub after 10:00, no television in the rooms, stay out of the kitchen area (no microwave, fridge, etc), no lighting of candles (we did it anyway! It was our Valentine's weekend), and if you actually wanted participate in the other "B"-Breakfast, you had to wake and get out of bed at a specific time to come downstairs and eat with a bunch of strangers,,,at the same TABLE. You can imagine how romantic that was! I don't understand where all the good reviews are coming from unless the guests have nothing to compare this B&B experience to or the inn keepers are writing the majority of these reviews. If you are looking for boredom and an uptight environment you found the right place!

We are disappointed to read that this guest's experience at our bed and breakfast did not meet their expectations. From their description, it appears that their date of stay was several years ago as we have added many amenities since we purchased the Inn in 2002, including a guest refrigerator and microwave, flatscreen TV/DVDs, radio/CD players and firesafe, battery-operated candles in each room. And as described on our website, we serve our guest breakfast in our large Common Room at 9 am so there is a good chance a guest will have some interaction with other guests, which is typical for most B&Bs. But as each B&B is unique in setting and style, we encourage guests to find the type of B&B property that fits their style. As evidenced by most guest reviews here, our B&B meets or exceeds our guests' expectations.
