We drove from Kentucky on Sunday, May 27th. When we got there, the owners, Art and Libby, told us the A/C was out and would not be fixed until Thursday. But they put a fan in our room. The room had rolls of dust on the floor. It had one single lamp with a dull light bulb. We kept the window open and had the ceiling fan and another small fan to keep the room air circulating.
No other outlets in the room worked. The TV is a small flatscreen that sits below the bed, so you cannot view it from the bed. The bathroom had two flourescent lights around the medicine cabinet mirror above the since. They are the old fashion fixtures that give very little light. The tile is black, which makes it very difficult to see in the shower when you pull the dark shower curtin around. There is no key to lock your door when you leave for the day. There was no breakfast at all....not even coffee. We did not ever see Art again. We saw Libby run out infront of us through the kitchen door to get to her car. Not one word was ever spoken to us about the breakfast, that, according to their email, is included. When we got back to our room that night, everything was as we left it. The bed was not made, and the towels not replaced with fresh ones. We packed our things as best we could see and got out of there as quickly as we could. We stayed at a B & B the weekend before called the Inn at Sugar Hollow, which was wonderful. The rooms were cleaned up with fresh towels and the bed made and everything worked. The homemade buffet breakfast was way beyond what we were expecting. Everything was homemade and delicious. And they kept the coffee flowing and we ate in a beautiful dining room.
