We enjoyed our visit...would probably return for a second visit because we loved the wonderful, homecooked breakfasts...but needs a few improvements on making guests happy.
There were hardly any guests there at the time we were there...yet the staff neglected to give us clean towels the second day. I waited and waited...finally had to ask for clean towels and they handed me only 2 bath towels. I had to ask for clean wash cloths and hand towels and she had to get them out of the dryer. I really like clean towels each day...and don't want them at 5:30 at night after I ask. Also... we looked forward to the cookies and little snacks that were supposed to be provided in the evening...but they were sporadic on when they served them. It didn't happen every night...which was disappointing.
I would definitely give this another chance...there were many neat things about the grounds, the house is very pretty and clean and the staff was nice. I think maybe they need to be a little more consistant .
It is very relaxing to sit out in the huge back yard area..with benches and interesting things to look at.... like cute bird houses and a little fishing bear statue by some running water.
I really think maybe we happened to be there during a stressful time for the owner..and maybe that is why it seemed that a few things were forgotten.
Would recommend this to others...if you can get it on a special deal...it is still very nice....even with the minor irritations.
