Our stay at Beech Tree Gardens B&B was disappointing. My wife & I (who were in the process of House Hunting) stayed here for 2 nights while we spent a couple of hours each day with R.E. people.
We were told, by the owner, that she & her husband renovated the entire house including the "Common Area" sitting room. It was very pretty - but we weren't allowed to sit in it unless the owners themselves where with us or were themselves in the next room. The Dinning Room, also very pretty, was off-limits unless the owner was there.
Breakfast (both mornings) was blah. Fancy named food with zero flavor. As it happens, the only time the owners spoke to us was to tell us a) what fine food we should expect each mornings b) about her On-line business, and c) to tell us how much money they spent fixing the place. FYI - We heard there was a husband who co-ran the B&B, but he didn't bother with the guests at all. He spends most of his time at the Hacthery they had just purchased. When we did see him on the grounds (which are nice) he didn't bother to say hello or even nod in our direction.
It seemed to my wife & I that these people bought this buidling to renovate & restore, so to off-set the costs they rented out rooms - - which were very clean, very pretty & well kept. They certainly had no experience in hosting people or guest relations of any kind.
It being a cold November, we figured that the huge wood burning stove in the Common Room would be lit so the guests could sit & talk or read books. The stove was as cold as our hosts. When you saw other guests it was over breakfast and we were all then encouraged to eat quickly (which was easy since the portions were small, unflavorable and no seconds were offered to the few guests who did seem to enjoy "plain food."
By the way, all the guest rooms are at least 1 flight-up. So ederly or people with leg problems should skip this B&B.
My wife & I have stayed at many B&B's - from San Fran to New Hope, from Maine to Florida. And several other B&B's in the Poconos Area. We'll skip this one in the future.
