We loved this place. It reminded me of many of the old tudor farmhouses I stayed at in England as a child, from the wide beamed oak floor boards to the antique chests, cozy hallways & copies of Nature Conservancy on our bedroom endtable. Relaxing & in a very peaceful setting. Our hostess joined us for breakfast, a nice touch we don't always see in B&Bs these days. Note - our cast iron bathtub had a shower wand & hose attached directly to the tub faucet (as opposed to wall mounting), but it's fine if you don't mind sitdown showers. The location is convenient - it's a 2 minute walk to the great little tavern & restaurant at the Gristmill, & 10-15 min. walk to the (fabulous) Jefferson Baths.
