    The pics looked so nice; the place was falling apart. Scaffolding ourside must be holding the place up. The inside was so dirty; rugs haven't been cleaned in a 100 yrs. Paint was peeling all over the place. Left quickly. OMG Stay away. Hotels.com should remove this property asap

    I actually cancelled after I drove up and saw the condition of the outside. This place looked like a haunted house. Boarded up windows, scaffolding at the entrance. Building looked like it was falling apart.

    A happy place

    This is a unique must stay property. The hosts are wonderfully inviting and friendly. Each room is filled with extraordinary one of a kind antiques. Wine, soft drinks and home made snacks are provided each evening. Breakfast was a joy and provided at what ever time you select. The outside is being refurbished but the inside is wonderful. We will stay again and again.
