The first thing that comes to mind about the innkeepers is their friendliness. Also, Marie and Donn were very generous with their amenities: cookies, coffee,tea, and soft drinks were available any time you wanted them(unlike most B AND B's which have a set time that these items are available, if at all) There was the most luscious ginger-peach spray in the bathroom as well as an offer for a free sample of the homemade soaps, which I forgot, unfortunately, to collect. The breakfasts were the BEST we have ever experienced in a bed and breakfast;I am still raving about the stuffed French toast!! The electricity was off due to high demand in 100 degree weather, which initially made me concerned, but Marie brought us an old-time oil lantern to use for the two hours that the inn did not have power.As Marie noted, it lent an extra ambiance and historical flavor to our experience! The inn was close to restaurants and a museum, which is well worth seeing! The history of the inn was brought to life well by Donn as we checked in! Our only disappointment was the Shenandoah Suite. It was an "upgrade" due to the Garden View Room not being available, but the bathroom was too crowded, and the bed was not very comfortable. The extra space on the covered porch area was not comfortable for sitting except for one chair.
