We loved our stay here. Food and hospitality were great. The problem was, when I called to get a quote, the owner told me it would be $150. When we got our final bill, we realized it was $150 PER PERSON. This doesn't seem typical for lodging and the owner didn't seem forthcoming with the fact that it was $150 per person. While we loved our experience, we wouldn't have paid $300 for a room that didn't include a shower and the regular privacy of a hotel room. We only realized it was $150 per person when we confirmed on their website later on at home after looking at our bill.
On the upside, the property was beautiful and Sandy is a great cook. They also give you wine or beer at night with dinner and will make a coffee drink of choice in the morning. The place was also quite tastefully done. For $150 (similar pricing to a McMenamins experience which has included breakfast and a dinner voucher), we'd go back in a heartbeat. For $300 maybe not.
