I have read a few reviews, and while I agree that the job of running an Inn is a huge undertaking, not everyone wants or needs to stay in the "perfect" place. Marty and Victoria are friendly, try to help people plan their stays, and succeed remarkably well, given that is is just the two of them. My room, the Rose Room, had a small sitting area and a bedroom and a private bath attached. I also saw the other rooms, which were nicely done - especially the bedding and art quilts. The weather turned cold while I was there and my room is on a separate system of heat but Marty made sure I was warm, and arranged one day for me to tour the house next door, my Grandparents house from mid 1930 -1970. I also had spent time in the house they made into an Inn, and can honestly say, given the age of the houses, that both places looked a LOT better and in no way exude being run down to me - perhaps shabby chic, though even that is stretching it. It is an OLD house. Victoria is a very good cook, and I concur the egg/gouda/asparagus dish for breakfast is wonderful. Think of this a a visit to a friendly family place, not a showplace - and it is priced accordingly.
