I reserved Hansen House 9 months in advance for a family reunion. It happens that I live in the area so I asked several times to see the B&B and the owner gave me the run around telling me that the place was always booked. I let is go but in in retrospect, I should have been suspicious.
When we finally got to the place in May, we found it to be well located and quaint but dirty. Its an old place with charm but given its age, cleanliness is very important. There were dust balls everywhere and the rugs were filthy and had not been vacuumed from prior guests. The kitchen smelled and there was uncovered tuna in the frig that gave off an unappetizing smell. The plumbing is old too so we had poor water pressure and practically no hot water on the 3rd floor. One of my guests developed allergies to the dust over the 2 days we stayed at Hanson House. All in all, its hard to recommend it. Its hard to pay over $1000 for someone else's dirt!
