My partner and I stayed at this wonderful B & B for one night. We stayed in the Sun Porch Suite receiving a discount because of my birthday. (The owner said she would have given us a discount for being locals as well.) The "porch" in the suite was a separate sitting area with a love seat, coffee table, and chair. The porch looked out onto the garden. A door out of the bathroom led to the hot tub. The toom was cozy with a gas burning stove as well as central air heating. The B & B is in early 19th century decor with five rooms all of which are nicely furnished and roomy. The breakfast was very good: grapefruit with raspberry topping, french toast with blueberrys juice, and apple sausage. There are several different garden areas on the grounds with benches. There is some traffic noise from the Highway if you are outside in the garden, but the grounds are farr enough back from the road so that the noise is not distracting. I will definitely return to this B & B for some time away from the telephones.
