We stayed in the guest cottage and it was lovely. The accommodations are beautiful, it was clean and very comfortable. The rest of our family stayed in the main house. The main house was a different story. It is absolutely overrun with dust! The towels in one of the bathrooms were so full of dust that when my daughter dried...

Our family was in Augusta for a wedding and we all stayed at several of the B&Bs in town. The Clay House was by far the worst. My first question upon entering was, "Are you still considered a hoarder if you just plaster everything you hoard to the walls?" The shear amount of junk in the place makes it impossible...

Your comments seem a bit harsh after we went out of our way to accommodate your family. I understand that we have a lot of historical things in the home hence, it not being conducive to small children. So, I'm sure it seemed cramped for families with small ones and all of the equipment that goes along with them. Not...
