Arriving at 7:15pm we were amazed that no one was available to check us in. We had not eaten lunch that day in anticipitation of a gourmet meal. We made reservation for dinner when we booked the room three weeks earlier. The kitchen was locked up tight. No chef!! We ate at the local pizza joint.(NOT BAD) No ice was available.
The room was nicely appointed.The shower was poor, a cheap shower head. Breakfast involved one choice. The friut in the bowel in the hall was rotting. No salt/pepper on the table. Had to get our own coffee. The Inn keeper had disappeared. No WiFi or internet. We voiced our concerns about the problems, management blamed it on her lack of help.
Nice bed but very overpriced for region and being shoulder season.
