Loved the location. Host and hostess were very friendly and made us feel very much at home and welcome. Their dog (Percy) was well behaved and stayed upstairs most of the time. We invited him to join us (which he did) and we loved him, but he is deaf. The other guests were pleasant and we felt we had plenty of privacy. We could join them in one of the sitting areas or we could go to our room for privacy. We shared a local wine and the inkeepers provided us with complimentary cheese and crackers. We will be going back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I Good value. Breakfast was awesome. Homemade Belgian Waffles and fresh compote with REAL whipped cream.
