Honest feedback. Doug was very hospitable. My wife and I were riding the Katy full length and rented Doug's loft in the barn (he lives below). As he promised when I emailed him our dinner food list, he shopped and had the groceries in the loft upon arrival; everything exactly as we requested. Paid cash for that on top of room fee. But, the loft was not clean. If you are used to super-host Abnb's or nice B&B's, this is not the place. My wife was grossed out; she is sensitive to cleanliness. If you are just some guys passing through and don't mind those conditions, looking for a bed, shower and spot to have adult bevs, then this is the place for you. Also, the breakfast fruit, etc mentioned at reservations was not offered in the morning. Hope this is useful for travelers. Not trying to disparage Doug and the Barn. Had I read a review like this of the Barn, I would not have visited.

First off my place is clean but not cutesied up. I know my place is not for everyone and I told you when you reserved I am not Granmas lace and doilies but Uncle Dougs beer and bonfires. I also told you the room rates and the meal package rates. You opted for me shopping and reimbursed me for what I spent. I even included some items that I had here for no charge. I did not charge for the service. You did not get the items on meal package because you did not opt for them. If this were a really honest post you had ample opportunity to discuss your concerns with me directly that evening while we visited or in the morning over coffee while working on your bikes. I can understand your wife not liking my place. I get it. I am definitely geared towards groups of guys and families with kids. Don't claim the moral high ground and honesty but then leave out the details that would fulfill that obligation.
