Carol and Jay are the most wonderful hosts. They were away for the afternoon when we arrived but their son checked us in and showed us to our room. He spent quite a bit of time helping us to find a restaurant for dinner that evening, calling several places, and making us a reservation. They have a binder with menus of just about every restaurant in the area.
The inn is so charming with so many antiques throughout. A special touch, which was of great interest to me, is family photographs of 3 generations, displayed in the dining room.
We had gone to see the play, Anne of Green Gables, and when we returned to the inn, Carol and Jay were waiting for us and asked how our evening went. They prepared a pot of coffee for us and brought it to our room. Carol gave us a lot of information on places to visit, and explicit directions on finding the various points of interest.
The breakfasts were delicious and made from scratch. They serve juice, coffee or tea (and Carol remembers who drinks what), fresh fruit with homemade sauces, and french toast our first morning and scrambled eggs on a biscuit the second. Absolutely wonderful.
Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The bed had a great mattress. There was an iron and ironing board in one closet and bathrobes in another as well as two comfortable wing chairs to watch the tv/vcr. There is a huge video tape collection. It was sad to leave because Carol and Jay felt like family. We would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this inn.
