My husband and I visited the Eagles Nest 7/24 and 7/25 - 2005.
We have stayed in many B & B's over the past 15 years and for the most part enjoyed our experiences. The Eagles Nest has a beautiful setting and the home is very nice. Not as clean as i would have liked it. Our room had a film of dust on the tables and wooden furniture which i consider to be unacceptable for the price we were paying. Additionally, there was a hot tube that we would like to have taken advantage of except there was a ring of grease around it which indicated to me that it had not been cleaned for sometime.
The most annoying aspect was , in a word, Jerry. The moment he answered the door he looked annoyed. we did not feel welcome from that moment. He immediately showed us to our room and demanded our credit card for the second nights stay. My husband handed it to him and he went on his way.
The following evening I, very accidentally drove over one of his driveway lights, which were noting more than a wooden stick with a bulb hung on it. I immediately reported it to Jerry and offered to pay for the repair of the light. At the same time I apologized and asked if we could have a bucket of ice. He closed the private door in my face without saying a thing. I could hear him getting the ice. He opened the door and threw the ice bucked into my arms and ran to see the damage. I again apologized and he said nothing. The next morning at breakfast I handed Jerry my credit card only to be told that he did not accept credit cards for less than $100.00 in charges. He said the charge was $25.00 and discussed this in front of the other guests and the table. When he came around with coffee i said that I did not care for coffee and he, very rudely told me to then give it to my husband.
Jerry has been placed into an occupation he clearly does not belong. Hospitality is not his game. Joanne was not available most of time except at breakfast. She seem cordial enough then and the breakfast meal was good. There was not buffet and one only got a single portion. I know that my husband left the table hungry both mornings.
Whidbey Island is a very lovely place and there are many more lovely places to stay where you don't have to remove your shoes and be subjected to "Jerry's rudeness".
