This could be a charming place except...
The owner claimed on the phone that it was pet friendly on the phone, but arriving after 9 hours on the road, were told that they only have 1 room that was pet friendly, and our's wasn't it. (We had made the reservation for that particular room 1 month prior to arriving). Our dog spent the night in the van, 5 metres from the railway track, in the parking lot. We didn't realize it was that close.
I thought it was quaint when I saw a basket of ear plugs on the check in desk, thinking they were trying to protect the spouses of snoring partners, but 15 minutes after 11 pm, just as I was drifting off, the first train came through,(I thought it was coming throught the bedroom). They continued every 1/2 to 45 minutes throughout the night. I paid $110 for a terrible night's sleep and a huge bowl of oatmeal with fruit. Sorry but a B+B should not be located next to a high traffic railway track. Location, location, location.
