The B and B was a beautiful, wonderfully kept up victorian house on a horse farm. We had 2 of the largest rooms and one smaller room, all with private baths, air conditioning, TV, phone, radio alarm clock---all the amenities except a room safe, not necessary in this B&B. The place was immaculately clean, the innkeeper was immediately responsive to all our requests and questions. The breakfasts were delicious, although there was no buffet, but rather service of the same meal to everyone. There was no afternoon tea, although their advertisements said there would be. The B&B was a 10 minute drive from the center of town. The property was large and beautiful, the horses were interesting to watch and did not in any way compromise the quality of our stay. The drawback was the lack of any activity other than walking on the property, i.e. no swimming, tennis etc. This was not a problem for us.
