First time at a B&B with my husband and two daughters - I may have had unrealistic expectations. I thought there might be a small common room or a lock on the bedroom door. Nope. Rooms are quaint, beds comfortable and a step back in time (which is fun when visiting America's Hometown) but has a very strange layout; perfect for families but I can't imagine anyone other than families staying in these two rooms given the only thing separating the rooms is a French door that did not appear to have a lock. There is a screen in the hallway to give the impression of a "private" bath separate from the owners. My daughters (15 & 11 and well traveled) were freaked out that their door kept creaking open in the middle of the night with the wind - it didn't seem to latch tightly or have a lock then at 3:00 am the screen fell over with a huge bang. I didn't sleep a wink that night. I'm sure the owners are lovely people but there is something unsettling about staying with your children with people you don't know with a door that won't stay shut. The location is wonderful and it seems to be a very pretty house - we just didn't get to see any of it. You are meant to stay in your room. Overall, I think this scared us off B&Bs, we were uncomfortable and awkward. Barbara did serve nice breakfasts both mornings.
