This is a beautiful inn; the breakfasts were sufficiently "unique" while also appealing to diverse tastes and preferences; the room was exceptionally appointed and clean. The only complaint that we had is that the breakfast room is a bit tight and its small size forces interaction and small talk such that opting out is obvious and rude. Sandy is a fantastic host and goes out of her way to ensure that guests feel welcome and at home. The location is just on the edge of the university district, but we enjoyed tranquility and silence each evening -- there were no drunken or rowdy/loud students. While not exactly walkable to all of WB's main attractions, practically everything is a 10-20 minute drive from the inn. Its decor does lean a bit toward the "stuffy" and mildly impractical aesthetics of Victorian England, but overall it's much better than any of the tourist traps that abound in WB.
