We checked in on 4/25/2013 for a family wedding and found the building and surrounding property to be beautiful and well taken care of. We checked in about a half an hour early and were given our keys and directions to our room.
Here is where several problems arose. No one bothered to mention that our room was at the end of a hallway that was being painted. There was a crumpled tarp on the floor as well as several paint cans and trays. The gentleman doing the work were very nice and moved everything as soon as they saw this but this became kind of cumbersome by the third trip. What made matters worse was that when we came back the third time the hand rail had been removed from the steps and when I reached for it I almost fell down the three steps. By the time we were dressed for the wedding the painting had ceased but there no "wet paint" signs posted so I just hope anyone who came after us didn't wind up with yellow paint on them.
The room was nice with comfortable beds and a well stocked coffee maker though when I went to sit on the porch to have my coffee I found the porch chairs to be filthy and there was an industrial vacuum and power drill sitting on the porch. I was going to mention these things when we checked out but the gentleman simply took my keys and walked away without even asking how our stay was.
With all that being said, the Inn was beautiful, the wedding was handled very well and the continental breakfast was quite good.
