We arrived in town rather late without a place to stay. This place had the perfect accommodation for us - a two bedroom apartment in a house nearby but separate from the main house. We had two bedrooms, one bathroom and a living room. I liked the living room best. It was a nice size with galley kitchen (fridge and microwave and many attractive wooden cabinets) and black leather furniture, colorful rug, windows. We especially enjoyed having this communal space to hang out and work in (although there was no desk).
The bedrooms were both small - barely bigger than the queen beds they contained. There was a wardrobe for clothing and a metal shelving unit (not very homey or attractive) for the tv. I found the bedroom claustrophobic and it smelled somewhat of urine - maybe from the pets they own and allow? Also, the view was not so great - of a driveway and yard filled with cars. On the other hand, it was very quiet. The bathroom was typical of an old house - functional but not luxurious. The main house, where we checked in, is very attractive - a renovated wooden clapboard house. Breakfast was a basket of delicious breads and muffins as well as yogurt, granola, fruit and juice. The owner was very helpful but also very opinionated. He recommended restaurants and activities. The price was very reasonable.
So, overall, I have mixed feelings. Attractive living room and cramped bedrooms. Quiet, close to town, yummy breakfast breads. You decide if this is what you are looking for!
