The Wild Rose boasts as being serene and welcoming. We arrived to discover our room to be a converted attic over the garage, which was sweltering hot. The hostess, Brenda assured us that it would cool that evening. It did at 3:00 a.m. I had met my limit at 10:30 pm and attempted to enter the main part of the home to retrieve ice. I discovered that we had been locked out for the evening. Our hostess did not answer the phone or return phone calls.
The nearby freight train tracks were busy throughout the night, with trains blowing their whistle every 10 to 15 minutes. Incessant barking from a neighbor’s dog between 10 pm to midnight was far from serene. Our hostess assured us the next morning, that had we closed windows the neither trains nor the dog barking could be heard. That may have been feasible except for the sweltering heat. Our hostess was unaccommodating.
We have stayed in many Northwest Bed & Breakfast establishments. This was our worst experience.
