    The Schaefer Haus-Spirit Included at no extra fee

    My husband stayed here recently for 2 nights. We loved it! The house is gorgeous. The breakfast each morning was wonderful, too. They offer a beer/wine happy hour from 4-7 each night that we also enjoyed. The manager Tammy was incredibly knowledgeable & extremely accommodating. In addition, there is a friendly, mischievous spirit that we, (& the rest of the guests) experienced here. Tammy confirmed our experiences. We absolutely loved our stay & will most assuredly be returning guests!

    July 2021 Stay- 2 Nights

    The staff was incredibly friendly and the accommodations were nice (happy hour, tv service). The breakfast was cooked fresh, however, the milk glass looked like it hadn’t been washed in a good minute. We did not eat, so I cannot judge the food. The room was nothing like advertised on the pictures on this site. It was incredibly small. The beds were very uncomfortable (to us) and the tv was at an angle where you hit your head when squeezing between it and the bed to get to the bathroom. Upon arrival, the shower had hair in it. When brought to the attention of management, she apologized and immediately had it cleaned. The location of the house is set between all attractions, so driving distance was no issue. The antique decor of the house was very lovely. The ac units added around the house are nice, however, we noticed black spots on one of them, and decided to only use the window unit in our room for that reason. Overall, while the staff was lovely, we would not stay here again. We feel at the price we paid we could have stayed somewhere with a nicer room.

    I loved the historical charm that this B&B has. And the staff is phenomenal. I don’t usually stay at B&Bs but I am sold on this one. Will definitely be coming back.

    Naked Entry

    I was first disappointed by the buttons and clothing tags that were not cleaned up from someone before us. The first morning we were there, breakfast started at 8:30 AM. I was changing clothe (and was naked) and my friend was laying in bed, awake. All of the sudden someone OPENED the door to our room! Then, before I could get my clothes on, she ran away. Come to find out this was one of the girls that worked there and she was doing "Room Checks" now WHY would she even check our room before they were even open for breakfast? Not to mention our room was never checked at all or cleaned that day! We ran out of toilet paper and had to go get kleenex from somewhere else. On top of all of this, when we called to complain, the manager didn't really do anything to resolve our issues. She kept saying, "You can do whatever you want with your review. There is nothing I can do about that. I will speak w her." The staff member who checked and who served breakfast were both PHENOMONAL. The House was beautiful. The area was quiet. The beds were thin and not comfy. The pillows were like paper...so thin. All in all, I wouldn't stay here again.

    Great visit

    We were welcome by a friendly staff who were more than ready to help meet our needs. The property and room were relaxing and comfortable. We would stay here again.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE The Schaefer Haus!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about the staff of Schaefer Haus! We checked in and went out in the city to explore and our car broke down. Tammy and her brother came to the rescue and got us safely on our way. The entire stay was great. Each and every staff member went out of their way to make our stay extra enjoyable. Can't wait to return!
