    Where to start. Pulled into drive, noticed the front yard had not been mowed for weeks let alone been weed-eated. The outside of the main house had paint peeling off with shrubs and trees being over grown and not maintained. The back yard was even worse, especially around the back porch area. Upon walking into the front porch, an overwhelming bad smell was apparent. Numerous dead plants filled the front porch. Upon entering the house, the bad smell continued as Barbara rushed us through the house into the kitchen area. Upon entering the kitchen, we noticed the stove was missing burners, as well as the kitchen being a mess and cluttered with papers everywhere. Barbara asked what we wanted for breakfast and stated she would cook something if she felt up to it. As we got to our room, she had covered our fireplace with cardboard, with no prior notification or explanation. A doorway had been boarded up with plywood to separate two rooms. The plywood was covered by stapling a make shift curtain to it. Upon leaving our room, we were told we would need to lock up and turn off the lights down stairs if we were going to be late. Was provided the password for the WiFi but would not work in our room. The property offers a gazebo in the backyard but offers no seating and is used to dry laundry during the day. On our last day there, Barbara tried charging us more than what was quoted by Travelocity, stating the taxes are higher than quoted. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

    Nice chestnut charm

    Chestnut charm is a nice place old home built in the 1800s has the old world charm to it. Paid a little more to get a bigger room with a private bathroom with fireplace and jacuzzi it was worth it. The lady runnig the home is nice and helpful. And a good cook breakfast was amazing. She fixed us a stuffed pancake with fresh apples in it. Overall I would highly recommend chestnut charm bed and breakfast. Had a nice and relaxed stay.

    Cozy Chestnut Charm!

    I stayed in the Fireside Room, which is located in the mansion. Prior to my arrival, I called Barbara, the owner, & notified her that I would be arriving late. I was able to check in late with no issues. Barbara was kind enough to offer me directions to her B&B. Upon my arrival, the check-in went smoothly. The room I stayed in has a window A/C unit, & was cool. Barbara has a collection of menus from various restaurants around town. Several restaurants are within walking distance from the mansion. The Fireside Room is very spacious. The bed was comfortable. During my entire stay, it was very quiet, which I liked. Barbara arranged breakfast for me the following morning. Juice, water, coffee, thick cut & crispy bacon, an apple streusel muffin, & eggs with tomatoes & herbs. Everything was delicious! I enjoyed my stay at the bed & breakfast. The mansion has a lot of charm, & the garden is absolutely beautiful. Barbara is a gracious host, & I hope to stay at the mansion again.

    The location was in a nice setting, service was great, breakfast was excellent but a TV would have been nice.

    This was a very quiet and enjoyable stay. I wanted peace and quiet and that's what I got. The breakfast was amazing. Barbara was a very congenial and helpful proprietor. Would recommend it to anyone who wants: unique, quiet, and a restful experience. Loved the "old time" feeling. Not a cold and unassuming hotel. If you want really "modern" this is not the right hotel for you. This took me back to the late 1800's.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Our room had no air conditioning, outside of house is in bad shape, painting peeling off, host said she hasnt put in window air conditioning in all the rooms yet, blinds wouldnt close to block some sun, she said she did have a room with air but it would cost $55 more per night even though it stated room had air conditioning, she wouldnt let us move room eventhough noone was staying in the room with air unless we paid more, she gave us a fan and we bought another fan, she would go into our room when we left to go somewhere and shut the fans off and left our door wide open! Water in room never got hotter than lukewarm. So disappointed and felt very taken advantage of. Her overall demeanor was odd and rude. Would not recommend ever staying here!!!
