This gorgeous period home has been lovingly turned into a charming B+B by designer and host extraordinaire Linda.
The house was crammed full of interesting knick knacks such as a working guitar amplifier – OK we did need to move some of the décor to make space in our. The room was totally comfortable and the bed super-soft.
There were complimentary juices on arrival which we enjoyed up in the tower (widow walk) watching the sun set. Free snacks, tea and coffee were available 24/7. The hot tub was great after a day of sightseeing and Linda insisted we use it. Plus there were books and games in the cosy lounge. Linda was full of good advice on where to eat – and there’s plenty of great variety at bargain prices a short walk into town. In other words, this was a real B+B where guests were encouraged to make themselves at home, enjoy the whole property and relax.
The breakfasts changed every morning – we stayed 3 nights – the pic shows day 3 - this time Vermont French Toast - brioche topped with fresh housemade raspberry sauce made by chef Jana– but the star of the whole show – the outrageous, extrovert hostess with the mostest – Linda was camera-shy. We’d love to return.
Travelled as a (mature age Australian) couple for five weeks around East Coast USA. Generally did not book ahead, prefer to have freedom to linger as we please, and to actually see the room before we commit. Have travelled this way many times before in USA and Europe. Stayed at a variety of hotels and B+Bs from 3 to 5 star. In busy areas (Quebec City, NYC) we booked in advance from Tripadviser reviews or similar websites.
