“15th Wedding Anniversary / 51st Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We absolutely loved the romantic B&B!!! We stayed in the sweetheart cottage. The room was spacious and the bed was to die for. Everything about the room screamed romance. The hospitality was above and beyond. The gingerbread cookies were delicious and decorated to fit our special day. Our breakfast omelet and cinnamon rolls were truly the best I have ever had. Bill and Kelly made us feel right at home. Loved every minute of our stay, we will definitely will be back!!

Room Tip: The sweetheart cottage has a shower room with 3 different shower heads ( rainshower) and 6 jets, and...

Loved staying at Lockheart Gables!!!! Couldn't have had a better stay. The gingerbread cookies were so yummy, the heart shaped tub was so relaxing and the sheets on the king size bed = perfection!
We stayed in the Love Nest the night of our wedding and just loved the little touches of love in the room and the Innkeepers were just as wonderful!
Truly an amazing stay and we plan to be back again!
Highly recommend Lockheart Gables!

This place is awesome! We stayed in Love Nest but took tours of all the rooms. They are unique, romantic, and very, very nice! We had wonderful decorated gingerbread cookies, a great breakfast and a room full of amenities. We had a great dinner at Lucilie's which was very closeby and had great food. We told all our friends about this place and will definitely be going back. The pictures do not do the place justice.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great!

Very Victorian beauty that upon entering takes you back into a time when our world was still innocent. Where love and respect endures all things. This B&B will give back to you that loving and relaxing feeling in a clean, comfortable, truely1800's home that you can make your own memories in. Bill and Kelly are such kind and caring people that honestly want to serve you and me and all those that visit their home. Miss Kelly can make you a cinnamon role that melts in your mouth. I loved the bed and new sheets so much I wanted to stay. This home will leave anyone feel that warm spot in your heart. Lockheart is not overrated on any site, but it should be rated best of best. Staying there will be the best choice for suprising spouse to renew your vows too. love ya'll and can't wait to come stay again!!

Room Tip: "Love Birds and Window Light choose the Love Nest"

Vintage charm and hospitality! Bill and Kelly were exceptional hosts! Our accomodations were very romantic and cozy. It was such an awesome surprise to be served one of the most scrumptious breaksfasts in our room in the morning. Thank you for an amazing experience!

Room Tip: Ask for room away from highway if you prefer less traffic noise.

I had my wedding here. I loved the venue and the price but the owners(married couple) are a nightmare. They forgot our appointments, including my bridal shoot. The owner was not nice to my family that showed up "too early" and just wanted to use the restroom. The owner (husband) also barged into my bridal suite while we were getting ready (before the wedding) to fix the bathtub. We found a dirty hair rubber band in the shower and when I dropped my ring behind the bed, I had to dig through mounds of dust bunnies to get it. I asked the owner (wife) not to be with me before I walked down the aisle because she was such a pain to deal with during the whole process. I had a family member help out on the day of the wedding which really worked out and I recommend doing that if you pick this venue. The owners did not plant fresh flowers even though they told us they would when we toured the venue. They also DID NOT DRESS UP for the wedding, but wouldn't leave the back of the wedding and hung around the entire time. I have them in the back of some of my pictures that are now ruined. They wore jean shorts, tennis shoes, and casual shirts. They also did not make an effort to move the fertilizer and gardening supplies so my husband had to find a way to cover it up because it was right where the catering line was located. The pastor did not come to the rehearsal and so the owners lead the rehearsal but they really just told us how to walk in, when it came to the ceremony they just said to follow the pastor's lead during that time. We brought a tie for the pastor to wear because the one he chose was inappropriate He also did not look like he had a shower that day. The owner (wife) was also rude to my dad and made fun of him to me saying that he asked "stupid questions" about the wedding contract. The wedding contract was vague and my dad is a very educated man so I doubt the questions were stupid. She was the most difficult to deal with, but after we put down the deposit we were stuck there. The microphone didn't work well so during our wedding party toasts the sound was cutting in and out. The pictures really turned out well and I love my husband and our guests so it worked out. It is a beautiful place to have a wedding.

Feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Management, innkeepers and staff wish to extend sincere apology for any inconvenience or unpleasantness encountered during this experience with Lockheart Gables. Most weddings here are followed by great reviews, making it all the more disheartening to learn of such an unpleasant experience. Couple said they enjoyed their experience when checking out, so innkeepers had no knowledge of bride’s dissatisfaction until this review, more than six months after the event. The innkeepers' passion is to provide the best guest experience possible, so they were deeply saddened to learn of this. Innkeepers believed a good relationship existed with the groom following several lengthy and pleasant conversations, including discussing contracting him to rebuild the B&B website. Groom informed innkeepers he would be handling wedding details to help his bride who was facing tough finals.

Inappropriate appearance of innkeepers and minister was unavoidable. As the bride was made aware of when she arrived, frantic efforts were underway to restore hot water to their suite. It was an unusual and very difficult problem to diagnose and repair, requiring several people several hours outside in the heat, overlapping into the wedding. The minister worked until time to dress for the wedding, while the others continued working to avoid having to move the wedding couple to a different suite. It regrettably required faucets to be tested for hot water, thus necessitating the unwelcome interruptions referenced, each done with permission to enter. Innkeepers are required to maintain a presence at weddings to be available for the wedding couple and their guests. Innkeepers were not made aware of any items needing to be moved, nor of problems with the microphone – both of which would have been taken care of immediately. Guests searching for a restroom were directed to the bathroom located in the garden, specifically for weddings.

A major landscape firm was hired to “dress” the garden. Since their rep had a wedding scheduled in the garden a few weeks prior to this one, expectations were very high. Tragically, all but one of the plants died within a short time. Repeated promises to replace the plants never happened. Subsequent arrangements regrettably could not be completed in time.

Please be assured that appropriate changes have been implemented. Cleaning crew was replaced immediately, with comments used to restructure training for new employees. Wedding contracts were rewritten for clarity. All at Lockheart Gables request the honor of serving the wedding couple in the manner consistent with the passion we all share - bride and groom were invited and encouraged to return for a complimentary night’s stay.

The new owners lack the combination of verve and energy and good taste that makes an excellent b&b. The food was fine and the bed was good but some usual amenities -- ones that are inexpensive-- were absent (conditioner, lotion, shower cap, etc.). The door to another room was open when we arrived, providing a view of an unmade bed. It was still unmade when we left. The owners mean well but need to see some good b&bs and emulate them. More fundamentally, they may not have the personality that makes the b&b experience.

Comments and feedback are both welcome and appreciated. The management and innkeepers extend their regrets for not meeting expectations. The amenities mentioned are typically standard in all suites, but apparently omitted by the person who cleaned that suite. It is undesirable that any guest would have to see an unclean suite.

To better address the issues regarding the innkeepers, management has requested a private email explaining comments about the innkeepers.
