The property is beautiful and full of unique history, but the lodging house itself is showing its age. Things just need to be updated - only sheer curtains on the room that literally let in the street light, electrical outlets with covers missing, bathroom window that allows others to look in, windows themselves cracked/worn/leaky, porch wood deteriorating, lots of noise from traffic, and just an overall tired place that seems to have outlived its days of glory. Has great potential though to be stellar once again. Host was kind, flexible, and very communicative. Breakfast was good but way too sweet (french toast casserole).
