First, the positives - very comfortable bed, very clean rooms and house, terrific decorating (if you like taxidermy!) and gorgeous view. Now, the not so positive - if you stay in a B & B to enjoy a terrific hot breakfast before your day's adventure, this is not the place to stay. Breakfast is fix-your-own in your room and consists of things such as cereal, breads, bagged pastry, yogurt, and juice. There is also coffee and tea. If you enjoy interacting with the hosts and other guests, this is not the place to stay. We happened to see the host as we drove up - otherwise we never saw her. Since breakfast is in your own room, there was no opportunity to visit with others. Indeed, we never saw anyone in this large house after our initial encounter with the host. It was rather eerie. Also, none of the doors lock - exterior or interior (well, you can lock the room door when you are there, but you can't lock it when you leave). I found this a bit disconcerting. I don't think I would stay here again just because when I visit a B & B I like to have a more personal touch. The note from the owner in the room made it very clear that they did not feel like it was their job entertain us and that we should not expect to talk to them or to see them.
