We stayed for only 3 nights and wish we had booked our entire week there! We did not want to leave! I have stayed in many B&B’s and this was the best. As others have noted, the relatively ordinary exterior of the house belies a beautifully restored and interesting interior. The whole house is immaculate, and our “English Country” room was especially spacious and comfortable. In casual conversations our gracious and interesting hosts picked up on some of our special needs and preferences and then made an extra effort to address those. The location is quiet, but within walking distance of the park, the waterfront, trails, and everything downtown has to offer. Parking was easy and close. The breakfasts were beyond compare with fresh, local, healthy ingredients and skillful, imaginative preparation, with each day different and better than the last. It is apparent that Ava puts her heart and soul into the cooking. During our entire stay the attention to detail was extraordinary, everything has been thought of. I would guess that our hosts had spent many nights in each room, researching every small gesture that could make it better and anticipating every need a guest might have. Delightful. Don’t miss a stay here.
