Thank you Karen for hosting us for the night! We had a room upstairs, the one with the extra bed. While looking for a b&b, I found other places where the daybed looked less than comfy. Not here! My bed was cozy, with a great mattress, good-smelling sheets, and a goose-down comforter. Karen gave us some wine tasting advice, as well as some free tasting cards to wineries we would have otherwise skipped but enjoyed visiting thanks to her. The breakfast was delish! She let us pack up what we couldn't finish :) Her chickens are very cute! Carlton is a tiny little town but there are a few wineries there as well is a wonderful bakery. It's a close drive to everywhere we wanted to go, and a little away from all the traffic.
My only caveat - it was a bit chilly in the house (even though Karen says she put new insulation where there was none), but this was not a problem at night because of the warm goose down comforter.
