This lovely B & B boast large and pleasant rooms, a big living room with a roaring fire and a nice library to while away an early evening after a day of hiking on the AT. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and plentiful for our taste buds the coffee could stand a tad improvement towards the stronger side.
