Nice and cozy...wonderful owners. I have stayed in the Pleasant Under the Glass room several times and let me tell you,,, it is AMAZING!!! The room is small with just a bed, fireplace, sink, tv and the bathroom is in the room. BUT,, you have the whole greenhouse to yourself, you open the door out of the bedroom and step into a wonderful greenhouse with a microwave, small refrigerator and a spacious jaccuzzi. They leave robes for you to use, candles by the tub and bubbles for the bath. At night you can lay back in the tub and stair up at the stars knowing that no one else can see you. The owners make the stay wonderful, the breakfast is to die for. If you need to rekindle a flame, this is the place!!
Worst Stay Ever!.
My husband and I stayed at the Willow Way bed and Breakfast on Saturday May 16th in the "Eleanor's Suite". The suite cost $170 per night and we were expecting a very nice room. Part of the Suite is a balcony enclosed in a greenhouse with a large bathtub. When we arrived around six pm, a woman greeted us at the front door and took us to our room. We looked through our room and walked onto the balcony to see the bathtub that we saw in the pictures on the website. The tub was beautiful, but dirty, and there was a woman potting plants in the greenhouse. We continued to look through the bed and breakfast and told the woman that had greeted us about the tub being dirty. She said she would clean it and that was no problem. Then my husband asked about the woman in the greenhouse and we were told that she was one of the innkeepers and as soon as she was done potting her plants she would be out of there and we would have it to ourselves, and that it would be locked up. So we took a walk and when we got back to our room the tub was clean and the woman was gone, but the door that connected the greenhouse to the rest of the house was still open. So my husband goes downstairs again, and talked to the innkeeper (Lionel). He told him that his wife (me) wanted to take a bath and it was nearing 7:45 by this point, when we were supposed to have the room at 6. The innkeeper closed the door and told my husband that no one would be in there until about nine the next morning. When he got back upstairs to our room, we ran a bath and got in. Probably twenty minutes later, we hear the door open downstairs, and were shocked. I peeked down over the balcony without getting out of the tub as best I could with out exposing myself to see who had come into the room that was supposed to be locked up. It was the innkeeper and his wife. I made eye contact with the gentleman, but he still did not leave. We heard them in there for a minute or two, they turned on some lights and left. We were stunned, but thought maybe they had just come to turn on the lights for us and left. A few minutes later, the door opened again. It was the innkeeper again. I was very upset at this point, because I was unclothed in the tub, and there was a man in the room. He could not see anything, because the tub is deep and the balcony is probably ten feet of the ground. However, if I had stood up or been entering, or exiting the tub, or evening sitting on the side shaving my legs like I had been a few minutes before, He would have seen me completely exposed. Also, there is a staircase leading up to the tub, which he could have used if he wanted. As soon as he left, my husband went downstairs to talk to him. But could not find him. While he was downstairs, another couple staying at the inn, walk through the greenhouse and out the back door, also seeing me in the tub. I tried to stay quiet so they wouldn't notice me but we made eye contact, and they commented to each other as they hurried out the door. When my husband came back up I told him I could not stay there as I felt unsafe and exposed. ( Our bathroom door that led from a public hall into our room also did not lock.) He called the innkeeper and insisted on seeing him downstairs. I packed our stuff and met him downstairs. The innkeeper was not apologetic, and told us that "we were all adults". He acted as if having people walk through the room that I was bathing in was no big deal. We left at that point very disappointed that the trip that we had planned for so long was ruined, we had no place to stay, and the money we had payed for the overnight childcare of our three kids was lost.
Just in general it was not a good atmosphere. The innkeepers seemed tired of running the place, there were no fresh made anything, and we didn't feel very welcome on top of the invasion of privacy. We're not hard to please. All we wanted was a romantic night away from our kids.
