“Clean but not comfortable”
Reviewed 14 August 2006

The B&B is clean, and the owner tries hard. Bathrooms are updated and very clean and nice. The inn is located right on the highway so it is a bit noisy. Ask for a room in the back. The beds need to be replaced. They feel like the stuffing has been worn out of them and you are sleeping right on the springs. We tried serveral different rooms and the beds felt the same in each of them. Also, if you are visiting people in Chester, as we were, Chester Basin is a bit of a drive further south so be prepared to drive back up the highway to get to Chester.
