Marie Buckley is the proprietress of this marvelous bed and breakfast. She went out of her way to help us find what we were looking for, and kindly adjusted her delicious breakfasts to match our dietary restrictions. When the temperature became unexpectedly cool for August, she took the extra time to open all of the windows, and then to close them again when the next heat wave arrived. By renting the large room on the third floor, you get a charming view of the garden. The house is in the historic district on the south side, close to the waterfront and near a newly designed park which is excellent for walking or jogging by the old lighthouse. It's a short walk to King Street which has many restaurants and shops and a free trolley to the DC metro.
