My husband and I stayed here in June of 2013. I was impressed with the friendliness of not just the owners, but the other guest we met during breakfast. My idea of a nice vacation- a clean room, budget friendly, and close to entertainment/shops/dinning.This place hit all 3! We were a tad early checking in, but the owner gave us a map pointing out things to see and we were happy to wander around the city after such a long ride up. The room smelled fresh- yes the tub/toilet room was small-but how long are you actually spending in there.Plenty of room for plugging in Iphone/Ipad/computer/curling iron- made me happy. We had a bottom room with the pool right outside the door. Water was nicely heated to 88-and very clean. The breakfast was just enough to get us ready for the day. They even had discount tickets for the ferry to the Island, cheaper then the coupon book. The yard was beautiful-had a smoking area off the side yard with chairs. We walked up to the shops and had dinner and shopped. Upon arriving back at dusk, a lighted tree shown the way.. Even at dark the place was very home like.
I would love to return and spend more time.........Take a chance on this place, I did & I was happy I did!
