We had rooms 7 and 8 on the first floor in the pet free house next door and couldn't have been any more comfortable. We had a nice living room and ample kitchen, as well as en suite bathrooms. We asked what would fit our needs and this suite of rooms worked out perfectly.
Because this is an old house with hardwood floors, we could hear the guest upstairs moving around, but it just wasn't a big deal. Nor was the fact that the front guest room faced the street any kind of problem -- not too noisy and no concern for privacy (just pull the blinds).
Since we were arriving very late, we made key arrangements in advance and it was like coming home when we finally fell into bed in the wee hours of the morning after a very long travel day.
There was seating on the front porch where we could watch the world go by and use the WiFi to check our email, as well as a delightful hillside sitting area in the rear.
The rooms themselves had been thoughtfully put together, working around the restrictions of the existing architecture. Shelf and closet space had even been eked out of limited space in the bathrooms.
There was a good sized flatscreen TV in one of the bedrooms, and I'm sure there will be one in the second bedroom sometime soon, as well. It would have been nice to have had a common area TV, as well, but in terms of creature comforts, that's the only nit we could find.
Breakfast was good and abundant with plenty of variety, and the company was interesting. In just two mornings we met fellow guests from Europe, Asia, and across the U.S.
No, it's not lavish, glitzy and cutting edge. It's a homey, comfortable, convenient B & B which met our needs perfectly.
