we stayed here as a place to stage our dinner at Primo's from. We arrived in awful May weather at about 3pm. Sandy - the owner - is an interesting and very nice woman. The place is sort of classic B & B - filled with knick knacks, bric a brac, about 5 rooms, very clean, well decorated, a nice mix of current and traditional. Our room, right on the ground floor, was clean, tasteful, loads of interesting accoutrements. Sandi knows her stuff about the area, the location is great, 0.8mi to Primo, 2 blocks to the harbor and downtown. Really, not much to say. It was everything it should have been. Clean, safe, good location, nice attentive owner. Breakfast was very good; whole wheat pancakes, bacon, great fruit platter (papaya, oranges, dried apricots); sandi joined us and we had some great conversation with another couple; I'm a bit of a misanthrope and generally dread human interaction, but once we got into a conversation our breakfast companions were very interesting, as was Sandy. I'd go back in a heartbeat, I'd recommend it unhesitatingly. Only issue? Yeah. 5 star place, 1 star toilet paper....seriously!
