We stayed for a few nights in July on vacation. The house was lovely, the room was large and clean. (the only constructive criticism I would have is that without a headboard, more attention should be paid to the wall behind the bed for cleanliness) breakfasts were spectacular and some great conversation was had.
For the person who thought the muffins were store bought...seriously? If you were up early enough you got to see the muffins being freshly baked. As for an early breakfast, we knew we wanted to be out early on our departure day so we let Bruce know and there were fresh muffins, fruit and coffee to go right on time. As mentioned in the reply to the previous review, Internet is available (look at the information in the room or ask...not that hard to figure out) and if you can't go a night without tv well...
We loved it and if we ever find ourselves back there will stay again.
