We have stayed at the Jarrett House many times in the past and have had very good experiences. However, this time was very disappointing. We understand the hotel is under new ownership, so I want to give them a bit of grace. I suspect the previous owner had let the place run down, and maybe disposed of a lot of furnishings. It's probably a very expensive property, so money may not be there yet to properly fix and furnish -- yet. The room we had was bare-bones, the bathroom was utilitarian, and the overall condition is in desperate need of upgrade. The place was reasonably clean, just old and barren. The nice, homey, front dining room has been changed to into a sitting parlor (unfortunate). The dining room was moved to the windowless back room (bad move) with "church retreat camp" decor (awful). Breakfast seems to have come from cans. Honestly, this place could be a real gem again if it were closed for a year and properly renovated with a historic preservationist architect in charge -- with a lot of money. So, I want to give the new owners a bit of grace and chance to get things together. But, one needs business to raise money to put back into the business. I wish them the best of luck, but it's going to need a lot of intentional effort and polish to step back up to the heritage and expectations folks have had of the Jarrett House. The location is great!
