I think that for the price, this is an okay place to stay, but I would have just as soon paid a little more for a better room and better hospitality. When we arrived we were cooly greeted by Dotty, who while not rude, certainly doesn't know how to make one feel welcome. She let us into our room, and told us about breakfast. That;s pretty much it. The room was freezing cold and when I asked if we could get some heat in there, she said something along the lines of "I'll see about it. I didn't think about guests being cold." She did turn the heat on and also got me an extension cord for my hair dryer when I asked, as there is no outlet in the bathroom. The room was on the ground floor and facing the street. It's a little dark and doesn't feel very private, as it opens right into the reception and front door area. If someone does opt to stay here, I'd suggest getting a room upstairs.
Breakfast the next day was lackluster. Though the website claims the muffins are fresh-baked, they tasted store bought and artificial. The coffee was also a disappointment. Right before we left, a friendlier person greeted me and expressed her disappointment that we could only stay one night. I can't remember her name, but perhaps she's the owner. She seemed quite nice and it was a very pleasant encounter. She could give Dotty a few pointers.
The house itself is old and interesting. One definitely has the feel of being in old Nantucket, sloping floors, musty antiques, and cold rooms. Not a bad place, just not that great. On the plus side, it's a ten minute walk to the downtown.
