The B&B is charming and well maintained. The biggest upside is that the landlady is perhaps the nicest person you'll ever meet. Here's an example: we arrived in the middle of the night due to a colossal failure of our airline and she just said thank you that we called and said we'd be late.

Cathy, the owner, could not do enough to help me and was an amazing host and a very lovely lady. The room was beautiful and I had everything I could possibly need. A nice fluffy dressing gown in the room, very comfortable bed, peaceful location and close to the local train station so easy to get to. A lovely house...

We spent 5 days here and couldn't have asked for anything better. The room and bathroom were very clean, comfortable and quaint. The shower in a tub was a bit awkward for us to use so Don and Cathy Wagner (owners) invited us to use their personal shower. This place is only about 2 blocks from the water and 2...
