Summer has come and gone, but we would be remiss if we didn't write about the wonderful Summerfest weekend we spent over July 4th at the Wayfarer. We were a little nervous after reading a scathing review of it, but our conversations on the phone with Laura were quite pleasant and forthcoming that we found the review hard to believe and went ahead anyway. We're glad we did! The house is not airconditioned and as this was one of the hottest weekends of the summer we were a little concerned upon our arrival when shown to our room. There was a large fan in the window and Laura assured us that it would be sufficient. Amazingly it was and we slept very well all four nights we stayed with little noise audible from the street. The breakfasts were wonderful with a bountiful basket of delectable breakfast pastries, a variety of fresh fruit and several cereals to choose from. Laura was not intrusive, but pleasant , friendly and informative. The cats seemed almost invisible and, if there were two, we never saw more than one. Our one reservation was that we did not have a bathroom in our room, but some of the rooms do and we're already planning to return to the Wayfarer next Summerfest and hoping to stay in a room with one.
