My husband and I stayed 2 nights here in 2012 and had a lovely time. Here are a few pros and cons to help decide if it's for you:
A very pleasant, but not too talkative couple owns the farm and let us help feed the Alpacas. They were shy, had long eyelashes and were adorable.
The rooms are big and airy with comfortable bedding and a small patio.
Cleanliness is a virtue. Guests were encouraged to remove their shoes when entering the B&B, and I was all for it. You could eat off those floors.
The number one draw for us is that this is a Swedish themed B&B and the food was really good. That means wonderful local cheese, crisp breads, and fresh fruit. On weekends you get a specially prepared breakfast with chicken sausage, Swedish pancakes and lingonberries. The food was unexpectedly good and not your usual fare.
You can hear a pin drop in this place day or night. It was unfortunate that the room next to us was occupied by a young family with two extremely fussy toddlers. They did not want to sleep, and that meant nobody slept. Not us in the next room, not those upstairs or anywhere in the B&B.
You will not have any privacy at this location. The walls are just too thin. We are sympathetic parents ourselves, but this was our anniversary trip. We left the kids at home (or so we thought.) I would really suggest the owners discourage young children from staying here as harsh as that sounds. I'm not a snob, I just really like my privacy and sleep while I'm on vacation.
Although the beds were comfortable and the bathroom clean and spacious there were no comfortable chairs or furniture. If we wanted to hang out and read in our room, there was really no place to do so comfortably. The furniture was mostly metal I think, and did not encourage a leisurely room experience.
Cats are great at B&B's, but should be kept outside. I'm highly allergic, and do not want them anywhere inside the facility. I did have allergy issues while I was there.
All and all a lovely stay at a beautiful B&B with great food. Privacy and reading comfort were the only things that would keep me from staying again. I'm sure the owners could remedy this if they made a few small changes.
