Our fifteen year anniversary and first time "getting away" from the usual (kids, jobs, etc.)... I wish that we would have done more research! (This was our first B&B experience) When walking up to and entering the house, if we would not have been liable for the full price of the weekend, we would have turned around never to return.
Although the breakfast part of the "B & B" was tasty - coffee was served at 8:00 and breakfast at 9:00.- for early risers this made a late start to the day.
The Michael E. room as a whole, was lacking - in need of a good dusting, all and out cleaning (I wrote "Hi" on the sink in the cleaner residue) and a face lift. The third level which we were so excited about looked like it had been an afterthought - just ill kept and sad. Although I can appreciate the time and $$$ that it takes to redesign such things, and not knowing what the back story is on the owner/operators - perhaps this cannot able to be done, but then PLEASE "re-fresh" the photos so that those wishing to stay there would be able to decide whether or not to save or spend their hard earned dollars.
The gardens were completely unkempt, and the landscaping broken, slanted, and not cared for.
I am thankful that my hubby and I are able to find humor in all of this, have learned from our mistake and were still able to experience the joy in just being together - next time, we will do more research and spend our money and time in a more relaxing less "haunted house from the '80's" feel B&B.
P.S. In the Michael E. room you will have a nice view of a run down ice rink and park. In driving to and from you will clearly see the ambiance and landmarks of the correctional facility, electrical power plant and water treatment plant. Unfortunately, we did not get any tours ;)
