As we approached The Stables, we were impressed by the beautiful (and huge) front yard and beautiful home. When the host arrived (the son of the owners - who were on vacation), he was very nice. He showed us the room which was adequate. The entire place had a very dormitory or "old folks home" kind of feeling about it. Odd musty smell, narrow hallways and rest home colors. We took the room because it was late and we were exhausted but would not recommend it. It was quite disappointing to find out that the huge yard in front was balanced out by the complete lack of yard behind the rooms. This was billed a a country home and yet the room we were in was mere feet from the wall of the neighbor's home. No fence. The neighbor had car batteries laying in the side yard not too far from our window. And a roadway was directly behind that! We couldn't leave the window open due to the roadway noise.
The breakfast was good.
The next day, we asked questions of our host who had no idea of any local attractions. There are only a few. I would recommend that anyone owning a B&B in the area aquaint themselves with them.
