We even have one window that doesn't have a latch on it *gasp*. And to be fair, I must admit, I am the one who put the faucet knobs on wrong in the Attic room. The 60 year old clawfoot tub faucet broke, and I had two hours to switch out the faucet handles from another 60 year old faucet (thank goodness I had the part on hand). And yes, the hot and cold are backwards. That was the only way I could get it to work. I do need to put a note on it. We could ditch the old clawfoot for a fiberglass showerstall with a new fixture that "looks old," we could close the B&B and cash in our chips, or we could endeavor to continue to do the best we know how, with what we have available. We want to keep doing what we're doing: offering the low cost lodging option in Rocheport, where families, kids, wedding parties and couples are welcome. Yep, our place is a little funky, it will never win B&B of the Year or anything, but we do see a lot of people leaving with smiles. As for toilet paper, we have plenty! We have three cleaning folks on staff. Generally there's a couple extra rolls in the wicker basket behind the various toilets or in cabinets above the sinks. I'll never know if perhaps some cyclist needed it for their next night camping more than I did, or whether it was a huge oversight. Either way, we stand corrected. We do have two phone numbers posted if anyone needs anything, we're only a phone call and two blocks away. We have a 1 and a 4 year old. As a result, we have to do our business a little different right now in these first few years with the kids. Probably a year or two down the road, we'¦ll have more of the kinks worked out. We believe our website offers a very clear picture of what we do and do not offer. I always prefer a chance to make something right before someone rants about toilet paper, etc. We endeavor to please as many guests as we can. But I do remind myself of my mother's words: you can't please everybody.
