As a first time B&B guest, I don't have any B&B experience to compare this one to but nevertheless, I would have to say that it was a very nice experience. We (with my fiance) felt good about the place. It is set in a very nice (and romantic) location by Lake Whatcom - the property has its own dock on the lake; the inn has a nice country-cabin feel - well adorned with furnishings that make one feel cozy and relaxed; the grounds has spaces and gardens that are very relaxing; the room that we stayed in (the upscale one feels cozy and clean - it has its own deck with a lake view and it has a hot tub as well. And did I say that breakfasts can be both tasty and healthy at the same time?
Of course nothing is really perfect. In my opinion, I think our room's door should be lockable and the heat should have the controls in the room (instead of asking the inn-keepers to set it for you). Like what I said, this is my first time in a B&B and so, all these may not even be applicable.
Overall, if you like peace and quiet, romantic places (my fiance really thinks it's romantic), lakes surrounded by hills, and very welcoming hosts, I think you'll be very pleased if you stay here. I'm recommending it...
