I really enjoyed my 2 nights here. I love the location. It's walking distance to Main St, which was a requirement for me. Just keep in mind, the walk back up the steep hill (staircases) can be tiresome after a long day of shopping, tours, etc.
I will admit that upon entering my room (Elizabeth Room), I was disappointed. The room décor was a little less than I expected and a little worn in some areas. It was also the first room at the top of the steps. There was a reason this room was one of the only two available when I booked. However, the room was clean and quite. Please don't mistake "a little worn" for something crappy. Unfortunately, my primary complaint about the room was the bed. I think the mattress needs replacing. I know some mattresses are made to be soft, but this was very soft and sagged in the middle. When laying with a significant other, you literally both sink towards the middle. That may sound like good cuddle time, but it got old when really trying to sleep and I felt it in my back after the second night.
With that said, the B&B overall was great! The house was very nice and comfortable. I like all the antiques and interesting things to look at. The yard was beautiful, even in November, and I would love to visit this place in early summer.
The hosts were awesome! I immediately felt comfortable and was treating like a friend coming to visit. I've been to B&Bs where people were nice, but it felt forced. Tom and Kathy seemed to genuinely be themselves and creates an atmosphere where you kind of feel bad about leaving... just as you would after visiting friends or family. And Kathy's food...... 2 thumbs up! :-)
I will definitely stay again... although I would try a larger/different room.
