Spent 4 nights here in June. It was a pleasant stay, but did not quite live up to our high expectations based on the reviews here. The B&B is located on a side street, but there is still a fair amount of traffic noise, including honking horns early in the morning. While the rooms are set back from the street a bit, the noise still often woke us up. Another issue is the wooden stairs and floors, which are nice but clearly announce all comings and goings. There were late arriving guests on three of our four nights there, and while they were generally quite considerate, their movements were difficult to sleep through without ear plugs. Breakfast is good, but there is not much variety so it can get a bit old by the fourth morning. There is also no sitting area in the B&B aside from the breakfast table and the roof deck. On the positive side, our room (Cathay) was spacious and well furnished. The neighborhood is lovely, with tree-lined streets and plenty of good restaurants, etc. Bruce and Kenny were very helpful. We enjoyed our stay; it was just a bit different from what we expected.
