I was made to feel extremely unwelcome by the owner who seemed to wish to dictate to me and the rest of the group - how long we should stay etc. To add insult to injury, I had to interrupt her during a presentation in...More

If you are in the area, don't miss it. It's off the beaten path so not super easy to find, but follow the signs.
