We stayed in the guest house and were delighted with the charm and ambiance of the room! It was very cute and very clean, for being an older building. The grounds seemed un kept and not nearly as pretty as in the photos. The fountain in the little pond was never on. Also, our greeting seemed rather odd. Had to press a buzzer to have someone greet us. Ginger finally came out, said hello, and went to "get the key", but never came back. Saw her about 60 seconds. Then the Inn Keeper showed up, rattled off some local restaraunts and scurried off. Unlike many other B&B's and apparently what used to happen here prior to 2011, there was no food, ie cheese or crackers or fruit, but rather 1" little brownie bites, but only in the main house. It would have been nice to have something in the guest house kitchenette. For breakfast, we were told we could not eat at the main house on the porch, but would be brought a 4 course breakfast to our room. We were brought a rather untasty bit of food, egg/sausage casserole, banana bread, 4 pieces of fried potatoe,in a styrofoam box (toxins are released when styrofoam is heated), brown soggie pears, and orange juice. Stepped out of our room in the morning and were greeted to the sight and smell of someone cleaning fish in the kitchentte! Finally, we had housekeeping come to clean our room about 2 hours before check out saying she was told we were gone. Good thing we liked the room so much and didn't mind just being on our own.
