Napoleon's Retreat is a quaint, charming home with several smaller rooms and out-buildings that have separate entrances from the main house. The young woman who was our hostess tried really hard to appear welcoming and accommodating. It was pretty clear that she was stressed from this new experience of running a B&B by herself. When something happened outside of her design, she responded harshly to one of the guests and wrote a snide note to another. The previous owners had established a pretty good reputation and hopefully the new owner will get her act together also. An outside cook is brought in to prepare the morning meals for guests which calmed the hostess a bit. The meals were very good and filling. The home is surrounded by a neighborhood of old homes and small restaurants. Parking on the street is a bit of a hassle -- not enough spaces for guest cars and the bird droppings from trees in front of the home are unbelievably bad.
