Stayed in June/July 2012 (#11 Barn Deluxe) and enjoyed it, thanks to setting my expectations and choosing a quiet room based on other reviewers' comments. This property straddles between being an inn and a hotel, with some amenities from each category but it doesn't fit squarely in either one. Our room was beautiful and contained many thoughtful details - a box of snacks/candles/etc, fixings for s'mores, heated bathroom floors, cookies and milk in the evenings... Yet the property lacks basic services one may expect at this price point (room service, etc). There were some small "misses" in service upon our arrival, such as the front desk attendant asked if we wanted turndown and we answered yes, but turndown service never appeared... but generally the staff was friendly and helpful.
My preference is always to stay in an inn/B&B over a hotel, so this property was a good fit. But it's certainly not for everyone. The restaurant was excellent and we really enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing, as the pairings were novel and the sommelier knowledgeable and willing to spend time discussing each selection with us.
Would we return? I'm not sure... it was a pleasant experience that I would recommend to first timers who enjoy inns/B&Bs. I enjoyed the small touches described above, but they weren't important to my partner so we both thought the experience was nice but had different conclusions regarding whether the value proposition was worth repeat trips.
