This past Christmas we had an out of state visitor, and no 'room at the Inn', meaning we simply did not have a bedroom for our friend. Having heard good things about a local B+B called, we called and reserved a room sight unseen.
The evening our friend came in, we took him up to the Austrailian Walkabout, about 15 minutes from our home, and got him settled in. It gave us a chance to meet the B+B owners, and look around the place a bit. Having stayed at B+B's a few times ourselves, it was interesting to us.
The best way I can describe my own reaction is 'shocked'. The room was well appointed and down right luxurious. The bed comfortable, and the bathroom best described as spectacular. The house itself was immaculate and furnished in a style that's comfortable while sneaking in a luxurious classiness that's beguiling.
Our friend had a good stay, and has already asked to be put up at the Australian the next time he visits.
The final word? The Inn is close enough to home that we could bicycle there.... and I'm still considering spending a weekend just to enjoy the surroundings and the company of the owners. Heartily recommend the place.
