We had a few problems here on our 38th anniversary. The paint on the exterior was peeling and the host said she has been trying for several years to get it painted and hoped in the spring it would be done. At breakfast, after reading review of "fantastic", we were disapointed at having only a small quiche, a small fruit cup, and one sausage. There was a muffin. We had hoped for a large breakfast of french toast and marmalade as in the reviews. Norm , the host, said the lack of coffee and tea was a fiasco, and tried to get a small amount of water for my tea.
The major problem was the lack of heat. After paying $160 for one evening, my wife had to sit in the hall where the temp. was warmer than the bedroom at about 65F. It was not good to be separated on an anniversary. I had to assist my wife to get up into the 19th century bathtub. There was no heat all night except at 3 AM when a blast of heat made us too hot for an hour, then it got too cold until breakfast at 8:30.
