We love staying at B&B's for the charm, hospitality and unique surroundings. We found both charm and beautiful scenery surrounding Colette's, but it lacked a bit in hospitality. We found the hosts to be somewhat disappointing. The breakfasts were really great as far as cuisine, but it was hard not to be able to eat at your leisure and to have breakfast take so long (over an hour). In addition, when we go on vacation we like privacy. We were given the option as to whether we would like our room "fluffed" up (clean towels, bed made, etc) and we declined. If you are going to give guests the option of whether or not to enter their room while they are paying to stay at your place, you should respect their wishes. We left for a bit and upon our return found that our room had been entered anyway. No bed made or clean towels, as not to be obvious, but the trash emptied and our already hanging to dry towels folded--which bothered me because that meant someone else touched the towel I'd intended to use again. We found it a bit annoying and invasive. If the room "fluffing" had been mandatory we wouldn't have felt as violated. A comment was made at breakfast by one of the hosts (when a couple of us guests declined room fluffling) about making sure our towels weren't hung on anything wood. If you're worried about guests hanging their towels properly, then make that another rule(there are several rules already listed inside the room), don't invade their privacy and treat them like children.
We would not stay at this B&B again solely for the hosts and not because of location, decor or cuisine.
