This B&B is one of our favorite anywhere. We stayed here last year as well so this is an update. The place is still immaculate and the service is phenomenal. Terri and Jeff, the owners, are wonderfully friendly and helpful. We also received excellent help and very pleasant conversations with Susan who works there in the afternoons. Best fresh afternoon snacks, bar none, at any B&B. The breakfasts are delicious and varied. Much appreciated is the daily offering of 3 options. Great fresh baked goods. Wonderful. This year we stayed in Room #6. It was a little small but immaculately clean (wife likes extra space for her yoga exercises). Fresh, comfortable and clean bedding. Very nice period type furniture. Comfortable bed. Nice weight towels and spotless, large bathroom. Water pressure was low in the shower but, frankly, I am used to my high volume, high pressure shower at home. Our preference was for the much larger room #3. It was not available during our time slot. If you like space, can swing a few extra $$ and it is available, I would try for #3. Next year, we will shoot for the larger room but the small room was fine too. Frankly, by the time we get back to the room after a day on the trails and a big dinner, we simply collapsed. Nice new addition this year is free wine and cheese at 6:00 PM. We got there one night. Missed it the other nights. Oh... and don't miss the bowl of chocolates in the living room. We didn't.
This place is a definite keeper and we will hopefully return next year.
