I would not suggest visiting if she's denying there are any concerns. Send her the website with the complaints, and ask what she would do to assist you if you had concerns after taking a kitten home. If she brushes you off, or offers an exchange kitten, etc then RUN.
If you visit there's a strong likelihood you'll bond with the kitten. Puttingyourself in the position of meeting her at her place, seeing an adorable kitten, and then not taking it...would be very difficult. It happens to buyers all the time, and in fact some 'breeders' (aka puppy mills) take advantage of the sympathy factor to sell their puppies/kittens. You feel like you're 'rescuing' the little one, but in fact if you give her any more money you're essentially using that money to tell her you agree with her practices.
You mentioned being 'out of the province' before - if you don't mind me asking, which province? I'm in Canada too (Edmonton, AB), and I might be able to help you find a reputable breeder, or rescue, if your heart is set on a bengal.
