My husband and I went through many B&B's on this trip and this one was ok. I expected more from the pictures. Very old house still under renovation in some areas while we were there. Did not like the fact that there were a lot of bees flying around the front entrance when we walked up to the front door. The owner kind of joked around about it but I did not find it amusing. Bathroom was a bit on the small side. Food was ok. Walked away still hungry. I can not say that I would recommend this place.
We are never happy when a guest isn't happy! At the time these guests visited we were searching for a beekeeper to remove the (healthy) bees. A week or two later there was success and the bees are gone! Renovations are an ongoing reality of old houses IF you don't want them to fall apart. Given the rain the Southeast this summer, it was impossible to schedule all repairs when guests were not present, especially those visiting Monday through Friday. The work being done was on the other side of the house at the time of their visit. By the end of August all major repairs/workers present will be complete (no bees, no pealing paint, Victorian colors). The room they chose is the least expensive--and the reason is because the room is large but the bathroom is definitely "one at a time" with a large shower stall. These guests may have preferred our pancakes (very filling) but perhaps we thought they'd enjoy Gourmet Herbed Eggs with a pastry and meat--something enjoyed by people who are riding in cars and not planing a lot of exercise and those who have been traveling and say "we've been eating too much" We are sorry our choice for them failed to hit the mark. We commend these guests for being frequent visitors to bed and breakfasts and we hope they'll continue to visit B&Bs throughout the country.
