This delightful establishment is in the historic district's heart. We were greeted by name at the door by Marie. She explained the B&B's name: the old-time bicycle we call the "Ordinary" is called the Penny Farthing in the UK, because of the relative sizes of the wheels (you may know that already, but I didn't). Marie and her husband David are from York, England, and she still retains the accent after 40 years in America. Complimentary wine in evening, ditto the sherry in the room and pre-breakfast coffee. Breakfast at 9 was UK-style sausage with apple cinnamon topping on French toast. The high-topped bed is provided with a step, if one needs it. Entirely private, the "Treetop" room is over a utility room, so no noise from the outside, whatsoever. Lovely place, smiling as I type; we'd stay there, any time..
