Fall Getaway Weekend

Didn't get to enjoy the grounds due to rainy weather all weekend, but loved the room, the ambiance. Breakfast was delicious. Atmosphere wonderful,

Overall good experience

We have stayed here multiple times. Owner is very nice, was flexible with us when we checked in very late night, and has two awesome pups! Definitely worth the splurge if you want to enjoy a bath or reading by the creek or just generally want to explore the area.

It was Okay, but NOT below average...allow me to explain...

First off, there should be one more rating because , although I selected, "Okay, but below average" in truth everything was O.K., but NOT below average. However, I could not bring myself to click on "Met my expectations", because that's not accurate either. On the website one of the in-room amenities was a TV and our room didn't have one. That certainly didn't meet my expectations but it was okay. The breakfasts were fine but nothing spectacular so I would go with just "O.K.". I was surprised when, upon returning to our room, that the room was neither tidied up nor freshened up. I expect that at home because I don't have maid service, but I don't expect that in an establishment where I'm paying for service and have certain expectations of how my room should be when I get back. So, again, O.K., because it didn't meet my expectations. The grounds themselves need work. We would've liked to have sat on the hammock as advertised, or sit by the water but the chairs left much to be desired as they were old and everything looked like it needs a face lift. I understand the rustic look the place is going for and I like that, nevertheless, some upkeep on the property is necessary. For the rate that we paid, everything did not meet my expectations but it was O.K.

Our family LOVED their 10/18- 10/20/13 stay. Your breakfasts are outstanding as well as your hospitality!
