“Wonderful Period House Now a B&B”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

A lovely older house which has been restored by the current owners and is now a B&B. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and the house is decorated in the style of the time it was built, just updated. Very nice furniture in the bedrooms, enhanced by modern touches like a small flat-screen TV and central air conditioning, small fridge in room with a bottle of water, microwave and coffee maker. The three upstairs bedroom share a little sitting room on the landing of the stairs with a lovely settee in it. Free Wi Fi which worked fine. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves B&B's and historic buildings. Breakfast was indeed brought to my room and served individually, and it was excellent too!

Room Tip: For any mobility-impaired guests, there is one room on the main floor. The others are up a flight of...

I loved this bed and breakfast, and for many reasons; the hosts were beyond friendly, they are genuine people and love what they do! They made us feel very comfortable and were very hospitable. I also loved how the place was decorated! Its a charming Victorian home adorned with gorgeous chandeliers of the same era, decadent window treatments, a variety of antiques for decor, and two living areas (both are wonderful).

I stayed in the "Nellie Mae" room which had a tv, refrigerator, coffee pot, an extremely comfortable bed, a sitting area, and a beautiful vanity. The entire place was well kept. We were asked when we wanted breakfast and if we wanted anything inparticular and if we wanted breakfast in our room or the dining room. They paid special attention to detail and and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

Their breakfast is to die for! Everything was homemade and they use a local dairy farm. It definitely topped off the total experience and leaves you wanting to come back for more. You have to taste it to believe it! Oh, and having a cup of coffee on the front porch swing is a must!

Overall, I loved this bed and breakfast and plan to frequent it as much as possible!

The good parts were that the common area was really nicely decorated, the breakfast was good and the innkeepers were friendly. The room had a small fridge with a few complimentary bottled waters, microwave, coffee pot and tv.

The not so great part began when I called to make the reservation for 4 nights. The lady said she would charge the deposit to our card and then send an email confirmation. I expected that to be done reasonably quickly that same day. Several days later neither had been done so I called to see what was up. She ran the deposit through on the charge card later that day, but never sent the email. Not very professional. And not a big confidence booster for me.

I would describe our room as functional, not fancy. The room we had was on the ground floor and had a sleep number queen mattress that was so-so comfortable. Not the greatest, but could be worse. Bathroom shower was tiny and had cracks in the walls. Mismatched towels. No towel rack, just a hook on back of door and a hook on the wall. No complimentary shampoo, soap, etc.

Strangely enough, we were not automatically given our room key. We had to ask for it. I don't understand the thinking behind this.

The room we had could be much nicer if some improvements are made. It seemed a bit overpriced as is. The owners should also tighten up the reservation process and do what they say they are going to do in a timely manner.

Beautiful, comfortable, friendly, quiet. Delicious hot breakfast brought right to your room so you don't have to get up and dress to go have breakfast with strangers. The hostess even asked us the night before what time we wanted breakfast. Loved this B and B!
