The only thing I regret about staying at the Strawberry Creek Inn is that I was only there one night. The inn itself is so lovely, full of cute and unexpected little touches both in the common area, and in the room we were in. I'd never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and didn't know quite what to expect, but I was very happy I took the chance and booked a night.
A note on the service: I'm a bit surprised some of the other reviewers found the innkeepers "cold." I found them welcoming and friendly. I guess if you're looking for your innkeeper to gush and fawn over you upon arrival you'd be out of luck here. Alas, Ian did not act like he was greeting his long-lost best friends when we checked in. Instead, Ian greeted us with a smile, told us where things were, how things worked, and left my boyfriend and I to unpack, unwind, and enjoy each others company.Which I appreciated.
The only minus here is that there was a DVD player, TV, satellite, and wi-fi my room, but no CD player. I couldn't play my jams!
