This is a former nursing home. Needs more work.

I realize this property is a work in progress but it’s very important for you to know that this is not really a bed and breakfast in the traditional sense. This building is a converted, lightly converted nursing home. The moment you walk in the door you know you are in a former nursing home. It’s not a cute little Victorian house with cute decor and a cute room. No. This is not that place. When you walk in your room and turn the light on it turns on a huge fluorescent light embedded into the ceiling panels. There’s no decor in the room. And in the bathroom, there’s a paper towel dispenser and a sink that you see in a hospital. The bed was comfortable enough, only one pillow per person (add more pillows) but make no mistake you are in an old nursing home space. The walls are paper thin. My Feedback is that this place could be nice with more work.
