My girlfriend and i stayed here during our vacation, we had a very nice and comfortable time. Our room and the house as a whole was clean, warm and comfortable, we also adored the breakfest. Its a beautiful Victorian home close to everything downtown. Would definitely visit here again. -Cheers

We travelled as a family of three in January and had a charming stay. Comfortable, cozy and quaint, with a delicious breakfast each morning! I loved being able to read and play games in the living room with the sunlight streaming through, and will definitely be back!
