We had a nice time at this tucked away B&B type get-a-way. We arrived to a lovely room. The fridge had milk and OJ for breakfast so be sure to check in there. There was a coffee maker, toaster, granola, coffee and fresh (delicious) fruit to enjoy. There was also two loaves of homemade bread. It was all the benefits of a B&B without having to gather together with the hosts or the other guests. The place was quiet and we never saw or heard another person unless we were out by the cars. The place was full but we never ran into anyone. On the day we checked out we noticed that there were about 10 diverse DVDs in the cabinet under the T.V. and wished we had known that before. But then again we really don't need TV on an anniversary trip right? We stayed in the Bay room and think that perhaps the Grandview Suite (upstairs) may have had a slightly better view but only because it was up a little higher.
Only one suggestion for the innkeepers is to refresh the towels in the bathroom while we are out. We could have used fresh ones on the second day but had to make due. Certainly by the second night new towels would be necessary.
The weather was delightful. We had cool nights and nice days. The bathroom has an awesome heater under the counter that keeps you super warm while in the bathroom. No need to use the room heater as the temp was perfect. If you are going in the summer it's notable that this place has no a/c and may be a little warm during the day.
