Fee was not mentioned in either the phone conversation to book the room or the confirmation email. SURPRISE!!!
Felt B&B experience was average - nice decor until you realize you don't have a headboard and the bed isn't against a wall (can't sit up and read - only one chair in room) - so we decided to head upstairs to the common area to watch TV (as Sandi suggested). TV was about 12" wide (TINY!!), had no DVD and again, only one comfy chair along with a couple folding chairs... So that didn't work either.
Breakfast was at the same time - served family style at one table so were forced to make small talk with not only the other guests but the hostess as well. Fruit salad was lovely - but all the little pieces of melon still had the rind on, all the strawberries still had their green tops? Odd fruit salad...
We would rather have picked somewhere else - don't like her deceit about the "one night fee" which she says is mentioned online. I didn't book online and her confirm email should definitely have mentioned it. Would like to have had a common area or a room with two places to sit.
On weekend nights it appeared the BAR across the street would be quite noisy at night into the small hours...
Inn was clean and looked charming. But all in all, would try somewhere else next time.
