This B&B is in town so there will be some traffic noise of cars going up and down the street. It was quiet during the night but noise of cars passing started about 6:30 a.m. This likely affected us more than the other guests because our room was right at the front of the house, with a private entrance off of the front veranda. We requested a room with no stairs, and were glad we did. The access to the room was great and it was very easy to bring in and out the luggage.
The bathroom was quite tiny, and the shower small so that it was hard not to get water all over the floor. But this was compensated by having a large bedroom and a separate sitting area with TV. We enjoyed having so much space. However, when it came to where to put suitcases and set out our toiletries, there was a problem.
There was a entire wall of drawers and cupboards beside the bed, but they were full of the owners antiques and collectibles. As often happens with B&Bs, the owner of this B&B has lots of cute collectibles that she decorates the rooms with. There was a dresser but it was largely unuseable. The top was covered with ornaments and a guest book to sign, so there was little space for guests to place their toiletries or personal items. We moved some items off it to make a bit of room for our own things.
I brought a small chair from the sitting room, and placed it by the bed as a beside table. We put our suitcases on two of the armchairs in the sitting room. We draped dressing gowns over the metal heater in the room. I did not see a closet for our use - but maybe I missed it.
On the upside, Karen and Ron are so welcoming and friendly that you feel right at home She served an excellent breakfast and there is a charming garden around the house. Billy is a friendly dog who loves attention, and as we were missing our little dog which we had to leave at home, he did get quite a few pats from us.
