If this is your 1st B&B, then this is a very nice place to start. The home is quaint and the location for shopping is good. Having been to many B&B's and Inn's, possibly we've become spoiled by the more upscale details we’re accustomed to. Spartan candy and nut dishes that were specifically pointed out seemed too minor to make such mention of. Nice thought nonetheless.
The Mint room was friendly and comfortable. Noticeable were the lack of modern amenities like an iPod dock and reliable internet access. The old TV with built-in VCR was cute in a time-warp way as was the downstairs dial phone for guests.
Breakfast was yogurt (mine was too warm to enjoy-but that’s just me) a link of sausage and a French toast shell (cradle?) with apples and cinnamon inside. Coffee and spice cake were also set out. The handmade drink mugs are a very nice touch. I would have bought one if they had been available for sale.
Along with the other couple we sat with at breakfast, we felt slightly admonished as we were apologized to for ‘someone’ having turned off lights the previous evening. The apology felt more accusatory. I’m sure that’s not the case but just the delivery.
