It is so sad to see such a beautiful property fall to disrepair and neglect. The owner explained that her husband had passed away three years ago and that he was the one who took care of maintaining the property. It is clearly too much for her to maintain on her own. This is a very old log cabin retrofitted into a bed and breakfast with modern bathrooms. The yard was a mess and looked as though it hadn't been cared for all year. A decayed hot tub that was advertised on the website sat in the yard covered in weeds. I was informed that it has not been working for years. The rooms were musty and in poor shape although generally clean. Stink bugs filled the room at night. I opted for the room with a whirlpool bathtub. The bathtub must not have been used in a while since rusty water came from the jets. I had to use this bathtub because there was no shower or other means to get cleaned up in this room. The decor was generally shabby. The common room included a non-working fireplace at the time of my visit. The breakfast was an acceptable plate of scrambled eggs, grits, sausage and canned mandarin oranges. While I seriously wanted to leave and stay somewhere else, I decided to stay the night. Two couples had reservations for the same night and came in and made their excuses for why they could not stay the night. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless they are seriously interested in old log cabins and didn't mind the extremely rustic setting and bugs. For the price, there are many other bed and breakfasts that offer a more comfortable night's lodging. I don't like giving poor reviews but I hope this helps others to decide on the place based on a more accurate description than provided on the website and some older reviews.
