I have to agree with the previous reviewer that the property bore little resemblance to their website photos and was overpriced.
Pros: Good breakfasts in a nice outdoor patio setting.
The grounds were beautiful and interesting activities in the area. Innkeepers were pleasant.
Cons: Needs a good scrubbing. Cobwebs and dirt on the front entrance door and in the corner of the "summer kitchen." Patio needs to be swept regularly. Corners of carpeted public areas need attention-dusty or paint chips. Torn bedskirt. The first floor was stifling and very unpleasant to walk through (no a/c). Furnishings on first floor/lobby/public area (sofa especially) were shabby. Some peeling paint and many painted surfaces have lots of layers- ideally should have been prepped/stripped better (I'm sure a royal pain in such an old property).
Huge feather bed mattress covers might appeal to some people but need to be removed and shook out between guests as sleeping positions flattened out and a hill formed in the middle.
The upstairs areas (including 3rd floor) were adequately airconditioned. Bed linens were good and the mattress was reasonably comfortable.
We met other guests who have stayed here previously and are very fond of the property and apparently have no complaints. The decor in one guest room struck us as too dark but probably appeals to people with different taste. I'm not sure if there are better accommodations available in the area. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the cottages which are newer.
A lot more attention to detail is required to justify these prices.
