Be warned: this B&B has two cats--but please do not mention it if you notice cat hair in your bed, as we did. We assumed the owners would be apologetic and simply change the sheets. Instead, after telling us that it was not possible that there was cat hair in the bed (my wife had already removed a handful), they later yelled at me (yes, yelled at their paying guests) for daring to tell them their home was dirty. I should say, they did change the sheets.
While this is may be a nice home, it is not very well set up for a B & B if you are a guest who wants any privacy. Our room opened onto a common space and had glass French doors with no lock.
Please study the "Rules of Etiquette" on their website before you go. We unfortunately didn't do this and apparently broke several of their rules (no baths at night, remove your shoes upon entering, etc.)--although there were no signs to inform us of these rules.
You may also want to confirm the check out time before you make your booking. We were not informed of a checkout time and then when I asked in the morning I was told that it was "10 am TODAY" because the owners were planning to go out.
We've stayed at many B & B s over the years and this was undoubtedly the most unpleasant experience we've had. I should say that after yelling at me and apologizing the owner did offer to refund our money--and indeed refunded some of it.
