I recently stayed for one night, as a getaway from stress and madness in my life at this B & B.
The decor is lovely--historic without being stifling, comfortable and homey, not a museum.
My guest room, the Sunrise room, was very welcoming, and had enough of the modern to balance the older aspects to make it livable for those of us in this century, who like the
more romantic aspects of the past. I had the best sleep in the super comfy bed, that I have had in ages, falling asleep to the fire-light, and the sound of the wind outside.
I slept past the breakfast, but was graciously fed a breakfast anyway, or fresh-baked muffin, tea, and granola, fruit and yogurt.
I would suggest this as a getaway from the modern world---although there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, as shops, outlets, antiques, and shore line activities abound. Just staying there overnight recharged my batteries, and left me rested enough to deal with my personal
chaos in my life. I found it to be a worthwhile experience, and would visit again. No, it is not a super elegant, high end place---but the lack of pretension, the sense of comfort and safety, and the overall vibe of old fashioned charm is compensation enough!
