This is a pretty old house right on Main St that is in a good location to be able to walk into downtown. The staff was nice and the breakfasts in the morning were excellent.
I realize the house is old, however it is in serious and I mean serious need of renovation and updating. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you because each creak of the hallway and stairs can be heard wherever you are. Not to mention, you will need earplugs, that they provide, in order to sleep due to the car traffic in front of the house. The bed and linens were clean and comfortable, but the room was in serious need of deep cleaning. The decorative items in the room had a good years worth of dust on them and clearly nothing in the room had been moved and vacuumed in a while. I realize the place doesn't have central heat and air, but there were cobwebs on the curtain rods and that wasn't acceptable. The bathroom was also in serious need of a deep cleaning, as well as the lamp shades that when I went to sit at the desk had hair and dust caked on them that were clearly not mine. The pictures on the web site were a tad deceiving, but some places you really don't know until you get there.
Staff was nice and helpful, although, I don't want to feel corralled into staying for social hour. If I do, great, if not, let it go. Food was good, but unless this place gets a serious makeover, I doubt I will darken the door again.
I stayed at this place on a Living Social deal and had I paid full price for it, I would have been livid. This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and probably be my last.
