This is a wonderful period style bed and breakfast, if you love antiques then this would be a great place for you to stay.
We really enjoyed Glen and Char, they were very informative about the area and had some great stories to tell about the house's history.
The one wish we have for our next stay, and, yes we WILL be back is that they would provide a healthy option (fruite, granola, ect) along with the wonderful home cooked/baked options they provide (don't mistake anything the breakfast was wonderful).
