My husband and I stayed at the Graystone Inn for one evening after having it recommended by friends. We were looking forward to it after looking at the website, even though it was a bit pricey. The outside of the inn looks nothing like the website. Very overgrown, we even had trouble finding the house itself. No grounds and the outside verandas were dirty with cigarette butts. We did not have a welcoming start as we were there before 4:00, rang the bell, clerk peeked out the door and told us check-in was 4:00. Then proceeded to close and lock door again. They were getting ready for a private party that evening. That started the rest of our somewhat less than pleasing experience. The private party took up the entire downstairs and we had to be sequestered in the upstairs (the stairs were even roped off). When we tried to come downstairs to the library where we were told there would be wine and cheese for us, we were ushered back up to the 3rd floor sitting room (uninviting) with a bottle of wine and a dish of stale bar snacks. We were the only ones in the Inn that evening so we didn't even have the fun of talking and getting to know others. Our room was just OK. Nothing plush about this at all. We've stayed in lots of B & B's and this is probably a 3 on 1-10 scale of plushness. Don't expect any WiFi as we didn't have a signal the entire time we were there. The breakfast was very good and we enjoyed talking to the owner. However, he put us off a bit when we told him where we had dinner the night before. He said he would've recommended 2 or 3 a lot better than the one we chose. We didn't tell him that his clerk DID recommend this restaurant to us. The final straw was when we checked out, he pointed out the line for a tip and "suggested" a tip for the housekeeper. This was a first for me as I've never had an owner have the gall to suggest a tip. I like to address my complaints with the owners or general managers before I write a review so I emailed the owner with the above comments. I received a very nice email back but he didn't address any of the complaints, kind of "Who cares". Don't go here if you have a choice.
