Although the Shenandoah Suite was well decorated, we felt uncomfortable with squeaky floors and bed. Rules posted in the bathroom concerning the jacuzzi were way too constrictive. Breakfast was ordinary and the owner watched us eat the limited selection - it was far from the gourmet spread advertised. We were asked to leave the room by 10:30 a.m. for house-keeping purposes, but when we returned, only the bed had been poorly made; the trash had not been emptied, no dishes nor towels had been touched and the ice bucket from the night before was still on the table with the melted ice water in it. The (central) air conditioning did not work well the first night we were there; the second night it did not work at all - when I tried to contact the owner, there was no response. There was no verbal nor written instructions abour the air conditioning, nor how to contact the owner if there was an emergency.
We did not see Cindy during our two days there. We felt we were being watched by the owner - as we walked through the grounds, Wayne appeared. We felt like we needed to leave the property to be alone (except for being in our room).
The owners have a lot to learn. This was not a good value for our money. We could have stayed at a 4 star hotel or motel and received better service. This was not the romantic get-away that we wanted. We will not be going back.
