This B&B is not bad, it is just not as good as is represented in the other reviews. This is a danger when somewhere get's glowing reviews-- it sets expectations unrealistically high. There are a few points that I think I can make that would help people considering staying here.
We stayed in the Rutherford room. This is described on the website as being small and having a small bathroom. The pictures on the website are a fair representation of the room, but not of the bathroom. The shower head is at chest level and because the shower stall is so small, it is quite awkward, though not impossible, to wash one's hair. There is no picture of the shower on the website so this is not something it would be possible to know in advance. The toilet is also located under a slanted ceiling so I always hit my head when using it, which is also not shown on the website.
The breakfast was fine. It was certainly better than a Holiday Inn Express, but I think the glowing descriptions in other reviews give an unrealistic idea of what to expect.
My wife was somewhat bothered by road noise, but I didn't notice it even though I am sensitive to noise. When we first sat on the beds, we thought they were extremely hard and expected to have trouble sleeping, but in fact they turned out to be fine.
We stayed there New Year's Eve and the property did not require a two-night stay, which we appreciated. The price was very reasonable for the area. I think the value proposition is good, but it is important to know exactly what you are getting-- if the inn posted a picture of the shower and toilet, it would make it easier to evaluate whether it's what you're looking for. In my opinion, it is perfectly adequate for one night stay, but I wouldn't want to stay in this room for longer.
