Pros: Character, charm, quirkiness, homey. Also great location to walk or bike to town, and nice views. Inexpensive.
Cons: All BnBs lack privacy, you never know exactly how much until you see the place and see your exact room. In our room we could hear people congregating directly under our window, inches from our bed, as they returned bikes. In the morning, the breakfast was laid out on the wall behind our headboard. If those things might ruin your trip, do not book a trip here. But if you are a BnB regular, well, that is the way it sometimes goes and that is why BnBs are so reasonable.
I do agree with another poster that the breakfast disappointed. Often BnBs do only give "fruit and a starch" but the quality should have been better.
I also felt that the bathroom seemed dirty and decrepit. Not in a charming antique way, either. More in a poorly done 70s reno way.
