If you are looking for a typical stay, go elsewhere. Everything is a bit quirky here. You have to call from the driveway to have them open gate for you. We weren't told where to park so we parked off to the side; later we were told we should park up by fence. John was in charge when we stayed, he is not your typical innkeeper, more like a frat boy. He didn't seem too comfortable with people.
The house is pretty but has an incomplete feel. It seems they are going to concentrate on weddings, so the the rooms downstairs, except for study, have an emptiness that will be a help when you have to set weddings up but for a b&b look pretty odd. We were the only people staying that night so noise wasn't a factor. Our room had a private bath and a walk in closet that is much nicer than mine at home. TV is huge but in a corner so view is blocked by bedpost. Room was chilly at first, but we keep it cold at home, and it warmed up later.
The chef, Winston, was so friendly we think he should be in charge! He took our orders and everything was tasty. Honey had french toast and I had pancakes, hash browns, bacon and juice. There were fruits and pastries too.
Garden is a work in progress. I am unsure how this place would work in a wedding--there is only room for a few cars.
If you are looking for cozy b&b stay, I would go elsewhere. If you don't mind not having a perfectly decorated place, it's worth a shot if you can get a decent rate.
