-the grounds are truly beautiful
-we were the only customers Friday night of Thanksgiving weekend.
-cobwebs remained in the room even after the room was 'freshened up' by owner
-clouds of dust arose from the furniture
-replacement kleenex not provided even though it was specifically requested
-the smoke alarm had been removed from the room; we were told we might want to avoid using the fireplace....a couple had not used the vent properly and the room had filled with smoke. So the owner reacted by removing the smoke alarm?!
-the matress was not of a premium quality despite it being the 'bridal suite'
-dinner was not available despite it being advertised
-the horses did not actually exist (would have increased the charm to see them)
-the room did not lock from the outside
-the firelogs we were allowed to use in the fireplace occasionally smelled of wax
-the hot tub was not cleaned as part of the maid service (I have noted this to be the case at other B+B's though)
-there was a notice indicating that the refrigerator could not be used by order of the health department (very suspicious if you ask us)
-no staff or owner slept there
-the ice machine was not turned on the first night, necessitating the purchase of ice
-the breakfasts were awful. No art. Plain. Portions not generous. And:
---the coffee tasted like it had been made in an unclean pot (actually it was unclean)
---the maple syrup was not maple
---the jam, peanut butter, butter, low-calorie sweetener were not put on the table; they didn't have any except for some jam given to my wife when she asked for it
---the bacon was burnt the first morning
---the scrambled eggs were not fancied up in any way
Our own personal research indicates possible new ownership and an emphasis on big events like weddings where a proper amount of staff are brought in temporarily. Don't use the Stepping Stone Inn in Westport, Ontario
