Ok, so I'm going to chime in with the chorus of praise for Steve and Wenda, but seriously, they are so very hospitable, and friendly, and helpful...
When I arrived there and knocked on the door Steven greeted me with my name, so that was a nice surprise. :) Afterwards he brought in our lugagge and when he saw how exhausted I was he even drove my car to the parking lot.
In addition to providing us with every information we needed he and Wenda gave us clean and nicely furnished rooms (1 and 2, the two rooms on the first floor), in the bathroom we even found a sewing-kit in addition to q-tips, shampoo and body lotion. Breakfast was plenty, tasty and well prepared, too. They have recommendations for several restaurants where they'll give you some percents off the bill if you mention you're from The Cathedral View.
The location is great, obviously, room 1 has views of the spire of the cathedral, room looks out into the garden, so that's ok, too.
The one thing I'd like to mention is that you take breakfast at one table so small talk with the other guests is unavoidable. We were lucky enough to be seated both mornings with gracious and friendly people, but if it isn't your cup of tea to make polite small talk during breakfast you might want to ask for a time slot with little, if any company.
