Dear Yvonne L, Thanks for giving such a clear summary of what makes our B and B unique! As you said, for us--and for many of our guests--it's the people and the historic home atmosphere that makes us so special. One thing you can say...More

The room/home was awesome if you are looking for an eclectic historical place to stay. I was turned off by the lack of choices for breakfast. The plus side was, you can have free drinks at anytime- which includes booze. We stayed in the Hexagon...More

Dear traveltheworld012, We really appreciate comments from all of our guests--and yours was no exception. We're so glad that you liked the Madame Steamboat room, as that's the room of the real "Madam" who ran this bawdy house in 19th Century. We're sorry that you...More
