I stayed in A Bed of Roses B&B around Christmas time with $150+ payment. It has great outlook and inside display but, overall, my stay for one night was not quite as I expected. Here I note a number of caveats.
First, I found several stink bugs in the room. B&Bs are usually old Victorian houses, so I am not sure if this is a common situation that visitors face. But, seriously, the time was in the middle of winter! I think it is reasonable to anticipate there will be more bugs in other seasons.
Second, hot water in the Whirlpool tub was not consistent. The Whirlpool bathtub inside the room was one of the attractions that made me choose this B&B. Yet it didn't really work properly.
Third, the heating system was not good enough. This B&B uses a kind of radiator that displays a beautiful fireplace when working, but I spent a cold night because that radiator didn't warm the room much as it looked.
Forth, the breakfast was so-so. This evaluation might reflect my personal preferences too much. However, after having the breakfast, I had a strong feeling that it was definitely not worthy of 150+ dollars.
Good stuff: The staffs are extremely kind. The house has a long history & wonderful atmosphere. That's why I rate it as "poor" not "terrible." But the caveats I describe above were crucial, by all of which I wouldn't strongly recommend this B&B.
