My friend & I visited in early June, by a less than friendly owner who seemed that any questions or suggestions we had (such as a fire in the freezing main rooms) utterly beneath her & out of the question.
I spent the whole 2 days in the house in a heavy sweater & coat.
Rooms were just OK, & overpriced. The remote for my VCR was in the owner's quarters & when I asked for it she snarled to her daughter, "Oh, give it to her."
Couldn't find the turn-off switch for the elec. fireplace, so had to crawl under a desk to un-plug it from the wall before retiring. And on & on.
To top it all off, I had forgotten some small items & upon return home phoned Paula to ask her to please send them to me. Without asking my preference, she said, "Oh, I'll charge the postage to your card." Then proceded to send them in 2 priority mail packages, to the tune of another $32.00 on my credit card.
I enjoyed the grounds & the coffee, but did not feel welcomed at all. This was the worst experience I've ever had at a B&B, & I've stayed at a lot of them.
