We stayed at the Brunswick between July 4 (our anniversary) and July 6 and it was a wonderful experience. Carol and Kirk, the owners are two of the most hospitable hosts I've seen. One of the most value added features was the small kitchen upstairs with a microwave, sink, refrigerator, crockery and cutlery and even some popcorn handy for use by the guests.
We stayed in Room 3 (A bit on the small side) which had a cute balcony overlooking the main road (Union Ave.). As a light sleeper I was afraid that the heavy motorbike traffic on the road might keep me awake. But to my relief most traffic dies down by 11:30. But by 6 a.m. the water truck comes by to water all the plants in the divider. But I'm an early riser. So no big deal.
The bed and bedding were luxurious and he many windows are a joy for someone like me who loves to stay close to nature. The bathroom well lit again with a large window.
Carol and Kirk served the most outstanding breakfasts (plenty of choices even for a vegetarian; Carol makes her own cereal--really delicious and healthy) which begins at 8:30 a.m. Coffee is served by 7 a.m. I think. Anyway, when I asked Kirk on July 4 night if there was a supermarket nearby so I could stock some OJ for the morning in the fridge, on his own, he volunteered to leave some juice (premium, no extra sugar added) for me in the fridge and he did. This really came in handy for me when I returned from my early morning walk in the neighborhood. Next night too without my asking there was juice in the fridge for the 6th morning. which I didn't need as I had not got up too early that morning.
This B&B is very close to the racetrack and so in the morning I could watch the horses during their exercise.
Another nice touch was the two bottles of Saratoga Spring Water in the room when you check in.
The only complaint I have if you will was the hardness of the water. I'm used to the wonderful New York City/Oceanside, NY water and so any water of less quality grates on my nerves. Hard water leaves a filmy feel on your skin, which I simply don't like. Of course, Carol and Kirk can't do anything about the water that flows through their pipe.
Most likely I'll go back only to Brunswick when I go to SS again.
Thx Carol and Kirk for making our trip such a great exp.
