The owners were very nice, check-in and parking was easy, however the entire place, inside and out, is in need of some drastic TLC. Our room did not have a workable door, it did not close correctly and had no door knob or lock, we barricaded ourselves in at night. We were told the door was "under construction". We were never offered another room or discount for this inconvenience. When questioned about another available room Frederick told us they had one but someone booked it. I then expressed to him that I was very uncomfortable with the situation, but I was reassured no one would steal me, not the point...I was, however, provided a fan when I said the room was very hot, even though he said I was in the coolest room of the house (dungeon/wine cellar). There must have been some water damage under the floor of the hall leading to our room, the 2' x 5' x 3' hole in the floor was partially covered by various pieces of wood and cabinet doors, no hazard there I guess. The toilet seat needed to be replaced and there was way too much useless furniture in the room, clutter but no chairs to sit in. The breakfast offered was mediocre at best, more of a continental breakfast, so we decided to eat out each morning. I will give them 5 stars for the view, it was spectacular, and 5 stars for the coffee, as long as you could find a clean cup and spoon to use. Really wasn't to my liking, I was not comfortable staying there, and would not recommend.
