We had reservations for the Gamay room and a check-in time of 3:00. I called to see if we could check in at 4:30 and the "innkeeper" said she would not be there as 'the wedding party already checked in, and that there would be no wine reception because the wedding party was out" (which turned out to be two people out of the nine of us at breakfast). She said we were in the Cabernet room and I told her that was incorrect, we had the Gamay room. She then said "the air conditioning doesn't work in that room so you were switched". No one called us, and we were not offered any other room. The Caberet room was on the second floor, carpet was buckled in a few places and the bathroom sink did not have a sink plug (be careful if you have contact lenses), which must not have a trap as it smelled when you ran the water. Also, if you have a problem with steps, do not book a room on the second floor as even though the staircase is wide, there are 20 narrow steps. We had a bottle of wine in our room since there was no wine reception. The couch in the living room had seen better days, as you sunk in when you sat down on it. The patio/courtyard would be nice if the dead bush was removed, the patio had been cleaned/swept of the leaves, etc. and the lattice in the fence had been repaired so you did not see the port-o-let next door. Had a good, one-course breakfast. Hopefully someone buys this inn and can bring it back to its natural grace and beauty. Would not recommend under current innkeeper/management.
