I love this house and how well Kim decorates it! They are wonderful hosts and make a great breakfast. You will love it! It's also close to the downtown area, and has plenty of space to make it feel like your home away from home.

A wonderful old house, nicely decorated. Beautiful gardens. We were there on a very hot summer night, and the air conditioning system struggled a bit to cope. Very friendly, helpful hostess and a very good breakfast. Prices were very reasonable. We would go back.
