The house, rooms, and grounds are exceptionally maintained - this is definately a labor of love for the owners, Scott & Ann. They were generally pleasant with Scott being noticeably more responsive to patrons. Breakfast times are generally set without much flexibility. Special requests appeared to be tolerated but not particularly welcome. We also witnessed Ann's intrusive temper in reaction to a small but unexpected request. While a display of temper toward a guest may be expected at a large hotel by employees it should not occur in a B&B (except in cases of egregious guest behavior). Good effort was made to have a pleasant variety of food but the preparation was simply average. Having visited other regional B&Bs of similar price I will elect to stay elsewhere at an inn where all the elements of a B&B are above average.
I would not take children to this B&B, nor is it accomodating to business travelers.
