My husband and I just spent a weekend at the Taharra and although we loved the building and the views the service and all the "little things" you except from a B&B were just NOT there for the price you pay...
The management was friendly and the lodge rooms were nice but nothing about our stay was different then staying in a decent hotel room...the sheets were rough the bed was hard as a rock, there was barely a flame in the fireplace, the toiletries were cheap, the towels and robes were less then desirable and the room just did not feel very cozy. The happy hour was VERY DISAPPOINTING as they only offered chex mix and a few cheap wines. The lodge is a few miles outside of town and we just expected a better happy hour with some home baked goods, better selection of wines, and just better ambiance. The breakfast entree was decent and well presented but left you hungry and was hardly gourmet. But most disappointing was that there was NO selection whatsoever of baked goods/cereals and shame on them for not even serving decent coffee with real cream (it tasted like Folgers). I realize I sound harsh but other then the beautiful views my husband and I felt like we were staying at a VERY EXPENSIVE residence inn and we were really looking for the little things that pamper you at B&B and I really feel that the Taharra is more of decent hotel then anything near a B&B. So if you just need a expensive room for the night with good views then the Taharra is for you but if you are looking for some B&B pampering look elsewhere!!!!
