    I don't believe they have any rooms with two beds. It's a small inn. No more than two people allowed per room. We had a party of five and rented three rooms.

    We stayed there in January in either 2011 or 2012. We booked the entire six rooms in the original house. Though we had a great time, there was problems. We had no heat - we froze the entire time and had to use the tiny portable heaters to provide any heat. Also, the rooms were very overcluttered with way too many very dusty objects on every surface and wall. This made it so uncomfortable being cold and in a very musty environment. We want to plan a family trip again but have these issues been addressed yet? I don't see anything in the recent reviews. Thanks for any input!
