Response from Kevin M, Owner at The Ira Allen House Bed and Breakfast
Responded 28 Jul 2018
Dear Eliot, We are so glad you enjoyed the "bed" part of your experience and we are sorry the breakfast didn't live up to your expectations. We pride ourselves on serving the freshest, local ingredients, including farm-fresh, homemade yoghurt and local fruits and vegetables whenever possible. We serve only free-range eggs from local farmers and the best-quality artisan bacon. All of our baked goods are made from scratch by us. We are sorry things weren't up to your standards and we will try harder in the future. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in our lovely state. Kevin and Michael
