This is my second stay at Landgrove Inn in two years. I had the same experience both times where unlike some reviewers I did not get the warm welcome. Maybe it's cause I have children. I personally love the dirt roads and the scenery and the Inn from the outside and the front is beautiful. It may not be your thing though. It's old and rustic. The Inn is in need of repair but that does not really bother me. The room we stayed in was old with old furnishing but I thought it was quaint. If slanted floors are a turnoff you would not like it. The shower -you could barely fit in..but the water was hot and the pressure was good and it was fine. Speaking of the shower, they gave me one small bottle of shampoo. I had 4 people in room/suite, I asked for a second tiny bottle and was told by cleaning staff that "most people bring their own shampoo". It was rude. And speaking of rude, I was told a "full country breakfast" was included and it was from a small selection. Breakfast was served from 8 until 9:30am. Ok, we are usually up, but my husband was just recovering from surgery and he was depressed and tired and in pain so he wasn't going to make the 9:30. They did allow me to bring it up to his room...Well we got down to breakfast, me and kids, at 8:30 and we were told by staff that we were the last ones down and that today they "started breakfast early" and were ending at 9 instead of 9:30....The waitress was just so patronizing and I really was rushed by her. She kept saying she had to get table ready for dinner. we were in and out in 12 minutes...i did not tip her. I don't know if I was supposed to...The pool - the pool. One reason we chose the Inn was they had a pool. Forget it - I tried to skim that pool for about 20 minutes to get the bugs out. My kids were dying to swim but even they couldn't get past the living worms we saw swimming around and the amount of dirt and yuck in the pool. Sorry but it was gross and again, the pool was in major need of repair. Now, having said all that this is not the type of inn to go to if you want modern conveniences. There are no phones and forget cell service..The internet on my laptop worked well though. On the positive side you are a short drive to many things to do. The location of the inn is wonderful to me, peaceful and pretty. After two nights and a second rushed breakfast and the patronizing waitress again I just wanted to leave. The owner was kind enough and allowed me to check out. I offered to pay for part of the day because it was last minute...and I kind of felt bad. But the rain was really bothering my husbands' back and that combined with feeling bad for the shampoo just made me uncomfortable. We go on a lot of road trips but twice at Landgrove and both times I felt uncomfortable and I am sorry to say that because I would like to like the place. But I won't stay here again and the strangest thing is I don't think they would want me back. And I've never felt that way about a place I have stayed.
