All the conventional motels had no rooms but the Innkeeper at Blue Bird Motel made a few calls for us and found Talbot House B & B had a room available due to a cancellation. We were greeted by our Innkeepers, who were cheerful and welcoming. The furnishings were comfortable.

Thank you for this wonderful review! We love to tell the stories about this inn. The sun rises very early in this eastern part of the US so we are used to doing early morning breakfasts. It was fun to meet you! Thank you again, Liz
