I'm going against the grain by rating this an average B&B after everyone else has left wonderful reviews. I've taken a lot of time to think about our stay since we were there last year, thinking that my opinion would go up as time went by. Well, it hasn't, so I'm finally going to share my opinion.
We loved this B&B. The owners are very kind, the breakfasts are out of this world, and the room was great. Why does it only get an average rating? Because of all of the rules that we were afraid of breaking while we were there.
Shoes are not to be worn on the second floor. I understand that this is their home, but we've never had that rule in any of the many B&Bs we've stayed in over the years. It was odd to see piles of shoes at the foot of the stairs each day. We forgot and wore our shoes upstairs one day and had to run the shoes back to the bottom of the stairs when we remembered.
If we had friends over to sit out on the patio, we were warned that we can't take up all of the outside space when there are other guests who might want use it. Therefore, we felt guilty about using most of the space and cut our visits shorter than we normally would have. FYI, we never saw another guest out on the patio during our entire stay.
There were other rules, but those are the ones that bothered us.
The owner also pointed out that they're on TripAdvisor and they would appreciate a postive review. That's another reason why I've taken so long in posting this, since I knew it wouldn't be a glowing review. I'm sorry, but I have to honest - that's why I love TA and use it for all of our vacation planning.
We had a lovely time there, but it would have been a fantastic time without all of the rules.
