I haven't stayed in many B&Bs, so this was a little different for me. First, I admired the exterior The main floor is lovely--lots of victorian woodwork and period furninshings. I stayed in the Inspiration room. It is on the 4th floor--walkup, but that was fine. The room was very large, well decorated and very CLEAN. It has a claw foot tub in one corner of the room with netting surrounding it from the ceiling. I thought, "How nice---but I won't be using that." I had a great night's sleep in the comfy king bed. The next morning, try as I might, I could not get hot water in the shower. I tried everything. I didn't want to call Joanna since I had called ther the day before to help get the TV to work (it was unplugged). Faced with the prospect of being the guest who couldn't work the TV OR the shower, I got into the tub. Not a lot of water, but it was warm. Breakfast was very good. I will be back---but I'll try the shower the night before!!
