After our "host" ran out to greet us with "I didn't realize you were on a motorcycle" we were glad we prepaid because she wouldn't have checked us in otherwise. We were asked before we even got inside to "make sure you do not start the bike at night because it would make problems"! As we have our own high standards, we have no intention of roaring high at 1am! We wanted to calmly tour the town after a quick nap, and my wife went to the parlor while I napped. Needless to say the atmosphere in and around the place and the Proprietors leave much to be desired!! No fun or cheer here! While the room is ok and breakfast was fine, these people need lessons on happiness and charm!! No discrimation would help too, as everyone knows people that may own motorcycles are not all cheap and broke. The host was overall cranky and standoffish and the whole experience was not a good one.

Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more less
