We stayed here on a bike trip. The Inn was lovely, and the restaurant facilities were very good. Unlike many B&Bs or Inns, though, there are not really any common areas to relax and chat, other than the bar area.
Our room was very nice and spacious, but the big problem was that our bed arrangement was quite strange. We first found the problem when were retiring late in the evening. The bed had a mattress pad, and then an unfitted sheet that did not entirely cover the pad, topped off with a queen sized comforter in a king sized duvet cover. We thought that this was perhaps a variation on what we might find in Europe. But in this case, since the one sheet did not really fit on the bed, it did not stay nicely on the mattress all night, and we did not have a good cover for the hot evening (as a comforter was much too hot and having nothing over us with the AC blowing was also undomfortable). All in all, we had a quite uncomfortable night, and discovered the next morning that there was supposed to be a fitted sheet on the bed as well, which would have been nice. Josh was startled to learn that there was not a fitted sheet, and said he would take care of that, but it appears that only applies to future guests.
