Read the review by "Never too old to Travel". It is very accurate, although it never bothered us to reuse our cloth napkins from the previous, delicious breakfast. I wish I could give this place four and a half circles, rather than just four, though, as I would rate our experience very, very good. The one thing that bothered us was the inability to lock our suite door. Everyone there seemed friendly and honest, but it still made us a little uncomfortable as city dwellers. We really felt like we were guests in Jack and Annelise's home, and Martha was also extremely welcoming and friendly. Our bathroom also needed updating, but there was great water pressure. Unless you are the type who insists on upscale chain hotels with room service, you will be glad you stayed here.
