We did not have a very nice stay at By the Brook. The hosts really didn't seem to want us there. We found them to be very cold,an they didn't even say hello when we came in the door. It just really felt like staying in a stranger's home.
We were told that wireless internet would be available, but we had to ask repeately for the password to get onto it. They said they didn't have the password, and we could just connect to the unsecured wireless network from the coffee shop nearby. It was too far away to get any kind of connection. So if you need wireless internet,especially secure wireless internet, don't stay here.
The breakfasts were really good, a nice variety everyday. However, I didn't find the place to be very clean. As was mentioned in some of the other reviews, the room was very dusty, and I don't think the carpets were vaccumed. The rooms were not made up during our 5 night stay.
The other side of the house is where the hosts and there children live. At night we could here them watching loud movies, and yelling to one another, which made us even more uncomfortable.
Overall, I would not stay here again.
