We've stayed in many B&Bs and I sadly have to say the Grandview Lodge did not measure up to most of them. Our room (the Wilhite) was very large and had comfortable seating - both features not commonly found at B&Bs. However, the water temperature in the bathtub/shower was so erratic both mornings I went from shivering in cold water to nearly being scalded - all without touching the temperature dial. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. This was the first time we've not been served a hearty, varied B&B breakfast on nice china by gracious hosts. Rather, it was serve-yourself style with paper plates and cups and nothing other than a mediocre grits and sausage casserole and cold cereal. We opted to not even venture into the dining room our second morning. Lastly, the dog that is compelled to yip like crazy every time anyone arrives or departs is extremely annoying, especially when his yips at another guest's early-morning departure woke us up. The host's warning that the dog is an "ankle biter" was not much of a warm welcome, either. All in all, the Grandview has great potential but, as it is now, is not a lodging we'd revisit.
