The advantage of this B&B is that it's inside the gates of Chautauqua and right next to the Ampitheater (that can also be a drawback if you don't like the night's concert at the ampitheater). But this place is in desperate need of some TLC. Shabby is the only word for it. I've stayed in lots of old style B&B's and I have nothing against sharing a bath. But the rooms really need to be redecorated and the mattresses are so bad that I had to put some beach towels under the sheet so as not to feel the springs. It wouldn't cost much to make these kinds of upgrades. In some cases rotted or broken flooring has been covered over with tile patches and carpeting--an older person could easily trip and fall. I would not recommend this place in its current state, although the proprietor is very nice.
