I originally gave this B&B a great review on Bed&breakfast.com, right after we returned from our weekend getaway. However, we then saw an additional charge of $43 on our credit card from this establishment. Here is what happened: they had a cooking class on Saturday, for which they charge an additional $100 or more per person. My husband attended, but I did not. There were about 12 "chefs" who prepared the evening meal. I was the only one who did not attend the cooking class. However, when it came time to eat, I joined the group with my husband. At least 3 of the "chefs" left right after dinner and did not partake of the meal, so there was a ton of food to be eaten or else thrown away. When we returned from the trip, we realized they charged us $40 after the fact for the meal I ate. When I emailed them, they acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me a promotional rate (we used a "Living Social" certificate, as did everyone else staying there that weekend); well, it was their choice to offer this rate to everyone, not mine. They said that "in society, we have no trouble filling the rooms at our regular rate." Then why go to Living Social to fill up the rooms?? Then they had the audacity to state that the cost of food is going up! Well, believe me, for at least $100 x 12 people, $1200 is more than enough to buy some shrimp, spaghetti, chick peas, salad, bread and dessert fixings!
I wish I had waited to review this Inn on Bed&breakfast.com; I will in the future, since these people charged my credit card after the fact.
Suffice it to say, we will never visit them again, nor will we ever recommend them to anyone else!
