This place was somewhere between Interesting and Strange. It all started with the fact that the host and hostess forgot we were coming. Not too surprising, considering we made the reservation via e-mail over 2 months earlier. So the host was out and the hostess was understandibly caught off guard. The presence of a little, shirtless boy with big glasses and odd stories was easily explained once we found out the host was the founder and "principal" of a school for children with learning disabilities (the boy and his mother were sleeping over in order to go on a Field Trip the next day). What seemed strange was watching a kitten play with a very dead mouse for about 10 minutes, but what was interesting was chatting with the hostess about her family's trip to the "homeland" (India) and their reasons for starting the school and owning this house. We were back to strange the next morning when it came time to pay up and the hostess did not have change for a twenty and said her husband had taken the credit card machine with him on the field trip. We managed to come up with $5 in coins eventually, but it would have been nice if she had knocked off that five from the price of the room and made it an even $60. But I give her the benefit of the doubt because they seem like good people, and I get the feeling that this is the sort of house where everything and anything can happen.
Huge, old house. Big rooms, large bathrooms. Pancake breakfast was yummy.
