My husband and I have stayed in about two dozen B&B's over the years. This one was one of the good ones--very clean, high quality linens/towels/toiletries, nice touches like bottled water, chocolates, and baked goods, coffee brought to our door at 8:00 a.m., good water pressure in the shower, off-street parking, etc. Jim made us a great breakfast with an egg white and vegan sausage entree that accommodated our dairy-free vegetarian diet. There was almond milk available for our coffee, too. Our hosts were pleasant and not at all intrusive, which we like when staying at a B&B. I've read the negative reviews on Trip Advisor for this B&B. If you like greasy eggs and bacon, go to a cheap diner, not a B&B! Our breakfast was gourmet without being strange, and we did not find the hosts rude at all. My only suggestion would be to add a Keurig coffee maker with K-cups to the butler's pantry, but I'm admittedly a coffee snob (they had instant coffee available 24-7, but they had delicious brewed coffee at 8:00 a.m. at our door and at breakfast).
