Verdant View Farm Bed and Breakfast has its charm. However, there were significant drawbacks in my experience there as a chaperone for an overnight field trip with children. My group and I stayed at the Little White House. During our visit, we learned that the house's basement quarters is rented by a male farmhand. This worker has direct access to the house, for the locks on adjoining doors (which lead to the house's kitchen and are nearest to the children's bedrooms) are on the basement apartment's side!
My group and I were made aware of the situation when we were told by one of the workers that we are required to keep the basement's private entrance door unlocked for the farmhand to gain access to the house. We expressed our concerns that this was a security issue, but we were told by Ginny herself that it is unnecessary to lock the basement's private entry because there really is no need. As guests, we were assured by a worker that the farmhand was indeed a "nice guy" and that we should have no worries about security within our group of mothers and young girls.
Needless to say, it was not a restful night at the Little White House!
If security is a MUST for you, keep looking elsewhere.More
