The house itself is spectacular. Within walking distance it looks just like its name... a Gingerbread house. Clean and beautifully decorated with every space filled with little knick knacks. My house would be cluttered if I had as many things but this just adds to its character.
Our room was the Tekarra room. Now that I stayed there I would have preferred the Kerkeslin room. The Tekarra room was filled with nutcrackers and toys. It felt like we were staying in someone's kids room. Not great for a romantic weekend. The other room felt a bit more mature and light feeling. The bathroom was beautiful and I dreamed of how I could renovate my bathroom to mirror it.
The breakfast was absolutely the worst that I have ever had at a B&B. We had bagels. period. They were not home made nor freshly toasted. We could have put some jam on them but the cold hard bagels probably would not have tasted better. It was just odd to me. Another odd thing was sitting at a slide in bench table in the kitchen rather than eating breakfast in the dining room. Breakfast was obviously not an important feature in this B&B experience. I've always thought it to be a special treat in the B&Bs that I have stayed in before. Normally done with lots of flare.
Rita was an entertaining host as she is a long time resident of the area and had many stories to tell.
It would be nice to have an information sheet in each room for when she is not there when you come in. We weren't sure of the internet pass word until the next morning nor did we know the process for coming down for breakfast. Time is normally arranged the night before so we were a little bit hesitant to come down in the morning since we felt it was up in the air. Now we know why... if bagels were just being served then not a lot of prep was needed.
