We first stayed here 20 years ago. That was our first B&B experience. We talked about coming back for years and finally did it this weekend. Little has changed. The new owners treat their guests like kings and queens and all of the charm is still here. It fell short though in two ways. First, we stayed in the Rose Suite. Very nice but the mattress was soft and bouncy and instead of a shower, the room only has a tub. A bath was not in my plan so I washed my hair in the sink and will shower when I get home. The other issue is that the room was expensive. The breakfast was great and like I said, the hosts are awesome, but it was priced 20-25% too high.
I don't know if we will come back. Maybe in another 20 years. :)
