When you have to work at being friendly, running a bed and breakfast is probably not the best business choice. Cathy, the owner, is gruff.
We were promised a level of service that was not delivered.
Beds were OK but breakfast was uneatable. No coffee, nothing, until Cathy shows after 9:00 am. Based on the low quality offering it would have been better if she had just stayed away.
Our party was catered, at extra cost, and the staff was seen eating our food and drinking our alcohol. Unbelievable.
I DO NOT recommend the Mellon Patch Inn. Two thumbs down.
