The owner was extremely welcoming and kind. Since the place wasn't full when we were there (mid-December is decidedly low season), she upgraded us from a full to a queen room without extra charge, and also accomodated my boyfriend's parents joining us for breakfast. We were also welcomed with hot apple cider and delicious homemade strudel.
The inn itself is charming and well-situated. The room we were in was spacious, and nicely decorated in a style I think of as typical B&B--antiqueish furnishings, flowered wallpaper, ruffled curtains. The bathroom was clean and had a jacuzzi tub, although we didn't try it out. There was a fireplace as well, which is a nice touch.
The breakfast was tasty, although perhaps a bit fussy--I prefer simple breakfast foods. My only complaint (and it's slight) is that I prefer tea to coffee in the morning and there were only weird flavors of tea available, and it was presented in the form of a cup of warm water from a water cooler plus teabag. Any serious tea-drinker will tell you that *boiling* water should be poured directly over the tea--but this is an all-too-common failing in this country, so I'm used to it.
