This is a place of extremes. It is a gorgeous property; the rooms themselves are lovely with amazing period furniture, and the breakfast was extremely well prepared and tasty with a lovely dining room, but the building itself is in a horrendous state of disrepair. The front door handle at the main entrance to the Inn kept falling off. My foot almost went through the flooring on the porch of suite 4; the yellow paint is flaking off the house; the whirlpool was covered, and the person who worked at the front desk and also managed the dining room spoke hurriedly, was abrupt, interrupted her staff in mid-sentence, and almost barked several instructions to us throughout our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, but were left with the impression that the owners were barely hanging on an aging property that maybe should be turned into a museum sometime soon?
