Chose this B&B for its central location despite lukewarm reviews. I can see where Manager M. could be off putting with her incessant opinionated chatter, and not terribly accomodating. However, we found her charming and personable. Am not a prima donna type, but concur with an earlier reviewer that the victorian charm of this historic building is spoiled by the layers of dust and grime on the numerous, tacky knick knacks. The shower had rust and the towels were thin as paper. The mattresses were so bad I was plagued with back pain for days after checking out. That said, the linens were clean and our room was tidied daily and it was quiet and safe feeling for two women. The owners should invest in upgraded linens and mattresses, fresh paint and a thorough clean if they want better reviews.
