Amazing Staff, Amazing Guesthouse! Totally Worth It!
On the only one negative note, one out of four in our group reported having had trouble sleeping on the second night when the freezing-rain storm began. Apparently, the freezing rain kept pounding on the skylight window in his room. Perhaps something could have been done, had another room been available for him at the time, but he reported this to me, only after our stay was already over. Maybe this room is fine in quiet weather, but apparently it wasn't for him in the very noisy storm. The other three out of four of us, who were staying in two other rooms, which had no skylights, were extremely happy with our rooms. We were amazed and delighted with how quiet and comfortable this guesthouse was for us, in spite of the raging storm outside. It was very warm also - temperature was never an issue.
The mattress was super comfortable, much better than we expected; it allowed us to get deep, excellent sleep. It even had a topper for extra comfort. The bathroom was nice, clean, spacious, private not shared, with a fan; the shower was beautiful, and there was always hot water. Soap, shampoo and towels were provided. Dorothy made delicious breakfasts and made our stay even brighter with her welcoming smile. She was careful to ask me (and all our guests) about any food allergies and food preferences at check-in. She was also very kind to leave me a breakfast very early on the day I had to rise very early for work. Parking was available on site for our guest's car, and Glenn made sure that it was shoveled during the ice storm that began on our second day. The sitting room, dining room, and reception room were all elegant and beautifully decorated. The reception room had chocolates. All ceilings were high and paintings beautiful. My partner and I loved our room! It had its private balcony with patio chairs! The spacious closet, with plenty of hangers, 2 armchairs, 2 night tables, and dresser made for easy unpacking. We enjoyed a good movie on the TV in our room. The Wi-Fi was superb! Lights were abundant, so we could choose to have our room dim or bright. The privacy was excellent thanks to lovely window curtains. There was a chain-lock in addition to a key-lock on our room’s door. Fire exits, fire-alarm bells, and extinguishers were on each floor. The Americano coffee and cappuccino were sublime! I also loved the soft, peaceful classical music that played in the stairwell and the dining room. Dorothy and Glenn show they really care about the safety and the comfort of their visitors and take excellent care of their guesthouse. We're deeply grateful to them for making our stay a safe and very pleasant one!
