Great property easy to get to and staff went above and beyond for me, even left me some fruit in a bag on the desk knowing I had to check out before breakfast. So very kind and thoughtful.

This was a cozy B&B at a good rate. The owner was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Breakfast spread in the morning was excellent (muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, boiled eggs, cereal, etc).

8/10 Very good

If you are looking for the usual B and B, this is not it. Not a Victorian style house with gourmet breakfast. The owners were great and welcoming and had the foresight to repurpose the building instead of tearing it down. The bathroom was remodeled with new shower surround , sink and toilet. A rug on the floor between the beds would be a nice touch. The cute little electric fireplace kept the room warm. Breakfast was the usual affair you get in a hotel, nothing hot except the coffee. I would suggest buying Kurieg decaf coffee pods instead of Folgers instant decaf. I drank tea instead. All in all, it was an ok experience, rate it a 3.

Inn is a converted nursing home. Still needs several more touches aesthetically to make it better. Bigger beds, more up to date decor, less mix & match furniture. Staff was excellent with service.
