I have to say that I must second the "odd experience" review below almost word for word. As full time travelers with extensive B&B experience we were shocked to encounter a B&B owner who was rude to us. That was a first for us.
My wife, 11 year old daughter and I arrived at a reasonable hour (2PM) to inquire about the possibility of open room on a Tuesday. We were told by the owner that she had a room for $125.00 and that she would show it to us. It looked fine for us with a queen and a small bed for our daughter. When we said ok, we were told that it acutally would be only suitable for the two adults and that our daughter would have to rent another room which was the next room over. She said it was due to the fact that the room was double occupancy only. When we explained that our daughter would likely not be comfortable in the single room she blurted... "Maybe you should just go to a motel in Gardner" We were stunned and just said "ok.... um... thank you" and high tailed it out of there.
The funny thing is, she was the first B&B owner in over a year of full time travel to fail to introduce herself or ask us where we were from or what our names were. There was actually not even eye contact. We love B&B's and won't stop dropping in when we see one we like because of one bad experience. Normally we experience such warmth and outgoing positive people in B&B's, both owners and guests.
We sincerely hope that ours was an isolated case and that she was just not used to walk in's. It could also have been that she didn't know how to ask for a third person premium for the cost of towels, water and breakfast. Most places just charge $15 to $35 extra for the child in the room which would have been fine without the attitude.
My suggestion would be to try one of the other nearby inns where you get outstanding Tripadvisor ratings on the owners as well as the accommodations.
