The owner cancelled day-of on us. Even though she didn’t charge us for this booking and told us where we could get another room, that other room ended up being expensive since it was last minute. Seemed like a nice property and owner, unfortunate that we couldn’t experience it and that the experience was a stressful one for me.

Ok if you want an old home/place to sleep
This is a nice old home for people that adore antiques and such. The shower and bathroom are very tiny. The drive way is also small. There was no television in the bedroom and I could not find toilet paper to replace roll. There was no breakfast offered even though it stated it would be included.

Note: Keep in mind that my review is for our room specifically. It does not represent the condition of the entire property, and another couple staying there in the house were really enjoying their stay. Our room was an addition on the back of the house. The room was large, beds were soft and comfortable, and linens were also really nice. The drawbacks were the lack of air conditioning and unusual, small bathroom. The house was cool and comfortable but we had no air in our particular room since it was an addition. The bathroom was weird because you had to turn sideways to get through between the upright shower and door. Our host, Debbie, was one of the friendliest people anyone you would meet. We talked for a long time and had an enjoyable conversation. It was just a lack of air conditioning and the bathroom for our room in the addition that affects this review.

8/10 Very good

lovely B & B but no breakfast
We were looking to stay in the town where we were looking at property & there were only 2 B&Bs, no restaurants, so we picked 1. The room was comfortable, but the shutters in our room didn't block all the outside lights. And the cooked breakfast wasn't provided, not was anything there for us, not even continental. Called the owner, to find out, but got no response.
