We arrived early and were greeted warmly and offered coffee/tea and cookies.
When we finished we were guided to the room. We were in the back of the restaurant building which provided us with a separate entrance and parking just outside the door.
The main building was decorated with a classic New England blue and white themed common room , the dining area was a green dream and provides a keurig as well as port wine and cookies. The guest mini fridge is also located here. Yep folks this is a B&B not a chain , so no in room conveniences. Back to the room , it has a whirl pool tub in the bathroom and they provide two scented spa soaps for it ( the sign asks we not use oil products as they clog the filter ) the standard little soaps and a shampoo /conditioner. The room is a short L with the front part containing a day bed , chair , desk and the TV (xfinity) . A cabinet built in with extra blanket etc. The back portion has a 4 poster queen bed and a gel fire place , as well as the main closet. ( yes you read that correctly , no tv from bed ) the free wifi was a little weak toward the inner part of the room, but reliable. I had a laptop set up running mgo movie with no trouble.
I had clear 2-5 bars in every part of this town and LTE everywhere (sprint/virgin/Verizon) tested with three devices. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept better than at home (we own a 6 mos. Old $800 bed at home)
The breakfast included on day one was fresh corn muffins filled with raspberry, fruit , a spice cake. Muffin was ok, cake yummy and fruit ripe and good. Big cup of coffee. My sweetheart woke before me and they gave him one of everything on real China and fresh juice all served on a lovely wooden tray to bring over from the main building. The buildings are only about 30 feet apart.
We did have people above us and I heard them a bit much but that's common many places. The back wall is shared with the restaurant/ice cream parlor and at times a voice could be heard , overall it was similar to an apartment. I found it acceptable but if you are in need of utter cone of silence you may want ear plugs if someone is above you. Highly recommended see yelp for full reviews
