My heavens, the staff is incredible here. It was a fine stay overall and the location is excellent! Our room, the Hyacinth, was rather average overall however compared to other B&B's we have stayed at over the 35 years of taking vacations, from Martha's Vineyard to San Diego. Here are a few items that might influence your choosing this particular room. We didn't want to move or ask for a better room when our stay was just two nights, plus it appeared they were rather full. The staff was nice enough already in helping us out with another problem. Here are the rather 'picky' items that might bother a few (such as us) and that's what a proper review is about, to possibly assist future guests. While the TV isn't necessary in a B&B, the one in this room is the smallest one we have ever encountered. The shower is also extremely small, barely enough for one person (I'm a 165 lb male). The lotion dispenser installed on the back wall doesn't help, and the other lotion dispenser on the wall by the sink (in the main room, not the bathroom) takes away from the charm of the room. In our opinion, saving the landfill from small bottles of shampoo, etc.. is a bit much when affecting the decor of a B&B room. The mattress also didn't fit the frame of the bed. The wood of the frame juts out on both sides. It was also quite warm at night with only the open window as relief. If this review was solely 'just the room' then a 3 star rating would be accurate. A 4 star rating is given due to the staff, and the grounds which are beautiful, plus the area is extremely quiet. We should mention the room was clean and no problems there whatsoever. For future guests, we would recommend a better and pricier room than the Hyacinth.
