    This was my husband and I's first B&B stay and it was absolutely wonderful. The Water Lily Suite was so cozy and clean, exactly as the pictures show. A delicious breakfast delivered to the door was a great added touch!

    Good morning! Thank you for your question. The Ardor of Hope Suite whirlpool tub is a one-person tub rather than two. The Bergey, Quill and Fitzgerald Cottages have whirlpool tubs for two. Thank you! Hope to have you!
