We had a family get together and we were lucky to have had all three rooms available. Each room was immaculately clean and the decor cozy and elegant which made our stay extremely enjoyable. Fresh flowers and little chocolates were a warm, welcome touch. The attention to detail did not end with the rooms but extended to the breakfast that was served--- delicious peach cobbler and blueberry pancakes with local bacon served in a beautifully decorated dining room. Simply lovely!!! A taste of heaven!! The owners are well-travelled and were always warm and charming. They even provided us with vouchers for wine tasting. This is definitley a First Class B&B and we highly recommend this place for all your future travels in NOTL.
