We arrived in town for a wedding and the hotel for the wedding was booked. I found this B and B through tripadvisor and we are SO happy that we stayed there, rather than the hotel. Brian and Lynn was great hosts and storytellers. They want everyone to feel comfortable in their Inn and in order to accomplish that, are not only nice people with a great dog (Newton), but they add wonderful touches. When you arrive back from a day out, you will be greeted with home baked goods. Along with that, Lynn keeps a candy jar. Because my DH enjoyed the home baked goods at breakfast, she saved some for his afternoon treat. They also keep a refrigerator with beverages and wine is available, all complimentary. A keurig is also available 24/7, but in the am, Brian makes brewed coffee.
Brian and Lynn takes turns cooking a breakfast surprise each morning. Each one was a great meal. Brian runs around cleaning all day and the place, including the outside, is immaculate.
Our beds were comfy. Showers work well and my DH loved the shampoo so much, that he wants to buy the same brand.
Lynn recommended Walter's Basin for a lobster grill cheese sandwich, which we couldn't resist.
