Was looking forward to staying at what looked like a nice place. As we were running a bit behind schedule on our drive up, I phoned the innkeeper to update him on our arrival time. He chose that moment to inform me that the room I had booked via e-mail had been rented out to someone else! And what was I offered in the way of an explanation? "There turned out to be too many variables for me to keep track of and I was so busy" !!! Then he had the nerve to suggest that I shouldn't have made "a decision to get in the car and assume there is a room." I had (and still have) an e-mail setting out my formal booking!!! I am a veteran traveler and a detail oriented person. Believe me when I say I followed every rule and every procedure that had been set by the innkeeper. I fear he simply forgot me.
The Innkeeper did manage to help me find another room in another town, but it lacked the charm and location offered by the Grist Mill and I fear our weekend suffered considerably as a result. My advice is that if you chose to overlook my negative experience and book anyway, please give yourself some kind of contingency plan.
