We have a lot of experience with high level inns and B&Bs, and also with lesser ones. This was one of the lesser. We stayed 3 nights, and will not be back. While our bedroom was well appointed, it did not have a dresser, but rather a fragile antique cabinet and a small closet for our belongings. The closet also held a small refrigerator, into which one could put some of the Bud Light beer that the host left out for guests. The eating area is small, and comfortable, just right for quiet intimate conversation in the morning until the host, Phil, intrudes. It is as if someone gave him a script to read, because it was unfailingly the same each morning. He did announce to guests that he gives "a little quiz" each morning, starting with: "What did you do last night?", followed by "Where did you eat?" followed by "What did you eat?" and rounding up with "What are you going to do today?". He did this with every guest/couple. If you enjoy being interrogated in the morning, this is the place for you. While it was clear that he thought that his inquisitive-ness was just part of his duties as host, we found it to be quite intrusive and rude, and he seemed never to get the hint when we were short with answers or just ignored him. He was just not very perceptive. As mentioned, it was as if someone told him: This is what hosts do. We were not the only ones who found him annoying, as people rolled their eyes when he left their area. Breakfast was subpar for the price of the room. On the other hand, the place was quite clean and convenient to the downtown.
