The critic who said OK at best must be mistaken with another place in McCloud I've stayed there and must say I was very impressed with place, in fact, it's just about the only B&B in town that gives you a place to hang out that isn't just some crowded indoor lobby or tourist trap. You only need to drive through the secluded grounds to tell that it is a substantial VIP retreat. Maybe the author was talking about the Stoney Brook or Century House down the street..
We stayed once in the Honeymoon suite, and once in there Presidential suite (a historic room upstairs) Both beds were comfortable, and the verandah is a great place to have a glass of wine, or read a book. Unfortunately the pictures on their website don't do it justice. The front lawn is like a park, and weve seen deer crossing through there more than once.
The Guest House was very nice. Lots of history. Very good breakfast. Wonderful service. McCloud was a surprise. Took us about an hour to go through the shops. It was a fun hour. The Dinner Train was a surprise. The car we were in was quite elegant. The food was very good. The service was great. The ride was very nice. We visited the nearby Lavender Farm which was very cool. A relaxing and romantic weekend. We were very pleasantly surprised. Visit with a slow-paced weekend mentality and all will be well.
I JUST WENT ON MY ANNIVERSARY AND SPEND 2 NIGHTS HERE. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH A LOT OF HISTORY. THE HOSTESS WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND CURTEOUS. I LIKED MY ROOM. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS THAT THE ROOM I HAD DID NOT HAVE A SHOWER, IT HAD A BATH TUB. BUT VERY VICTORIAN. VERY WELL KEPT AND QUIET. NICE VERANDA. VERY CLOSE TO THE DINNER TRAIN.
IN THE MORNING YOU CAN HEAR THE BIRDS AND SMELL CLEAN FRESH AIR.
IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I WOULD RETURN IN A HEART BEAT. BREAKFAST WAS GREAT.
