Absolutely appalled at the condition the place was in. The service on the other hand was just another issue. We ran out of toilet paper at some point and when we went to request it we were told it would be brought to our room - that didn't happen. We also struggled with hot water on day 1, resulting in us waiting close to an hour for maintenance to fix the geyser. I would not recommend the place to anyone. definitely never booking there ever again.

We received a very warm welcome from Theresa who immediately made us feel at home. We spent two very enjoyable nights there and were treated to a delicious breakfast each morning in her very beautiful dining room.We will definitely book there again when we are in the area. Thank you George and Theresa for a wonderful stay.... Alec and Wendy Byerley

Theresa was a wonderful hostess and nothing was too much trouble for her. The room was a bit difficult to heat, but being mid-winter, the problem was understood.The breakfasts and dinners were great and, overall, this B&B met with our expectations.
