This was our first B&B experience and we will definitely try it again. This was part of our anniversary trip and Carol (owner) gladly assisted my dad in setting up a surprise arrangement of champagne, cheese, crackers, and flowers - all things she had to go out and pick up on his behalf. It was an impressive touch. The B&B itself is very homey and we even got a guided tour to the front door upon arrival from their dog. Our room had a great view and had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable and the heated towel rack was a great touch. Breakfast the next morning was very good - quiche, orange muffin, fresh fruit, OJ, and french press coffee. We wish we could have come back the next morning for waffles! Only heads up is that it is an older home and other people are there, so when people are talking below you, you can hear it. It wasn't bothersome, but something to think about if you're looking for solitude and quiet. We weren't, so it was just fine :) I think this would be the case for any B&B in a setting like this.
