We took a chance on a Groupon and we're so glad we did. Disclaimer: this was our first B&B, so we didn't know what to expect, but we were so delighted with our stay in the Ellicott room. It's an incredibly charming place, the owner is astonishingly friendly and helpful (he made a great recommendation for dinner, made our reservations and drove us into town because he knew parking would be tight), breakfast was wonderful (scones with jam, baked grapefruit and a generous cut of blueberry almond baked French toast flanked by sausage), the sheets are what? 20,000 thread count? I'm going to be reminiscing about those sheets for a long time.
The bathroom itself was a huge draw, with a jetted garden tub, large tiled shower, ample lighting, ample vanity with chair and two thick white robes tucked in the closet. We didn't take advantage of the Fios or wireless internet, but I appreciated the bottled water in the room and the single cup coffee/hot chocolate machine outside our door. Next time we'd like to check in earlier to take advantage of the library, sun room and sitting room.
Overall, we left feeling relaxed, happy and well-fed.
