First, we had a nice stay here and would stay again despite some of the downfalls of historic properties. First, the good -- the owners were absent but their "fill-in" host was very nice and extremely helpful. The property is charming and well-kept. The breakfast was nice but if you want seconds, get them quick as they may disappear. The cheese/crackers in the afternoon were very nice and just what we needed when we arrived.
The cons are those you come to expect with historic properties and that is lack of size and sound proofing. Fortunately, there were only two other people staying at the same time and so noise was at a minimum. However, I suspect it can get quite noisy with more guests. We stayed in Room 6 as we wanted a king size bed. We were quite surprised, though, when we opened the door. Rather than repeat something, I suggest you read the review entitled "Time Warp." We agree with that description of the room. We did take a a peak at some of the other unoccupied rooms as the doors were open. All were small but Room 7 was larger and very nice. Of course, it is more expensive. We would probably opt for this room in the future, especially if we were staying more than one night.
Overall, a charming place to stay but realize what you get/don't get with historic properties.
