I have stayed here 4 times (thrice in the Cottage and once in the Suite) and was thoroughly impressed. The first two trips involved business, and I found it so relaxing that I came back two more times just to get away for a few days. This was the first B&B I had ever stayed in, and I must admit I didn't have a high opinion of them before this experience. I had heard horror stories of weird owners, cheap accomodations and strange odors. Instead, the owners (Scott and Ashleigh) were a wonderful young couple with three lovely little girls, the accomodations were excellent, and no strange smells (which impressed me even more when I found out they were pet friendly).
I strongly recommend this to those of you frequent travelers that are tired of the monotony of hotel stays, I promise you will not regret it.
And if you happen to be staying over on a Thursday night, make sure you head up to Spinelli's Italian Restaurant and enjoy the live entertainment.
If not you might be lucky enough to catch Scott playing his guitar and singing to his daughters on the back porch, while enjoying some of Ashleigh's fresh-baked cookies.
