My new husband and I decided to take a trip to Cedar Point to get away right after our wedding, and we decided a B&B would be more relaxing (and much nicer) than one of the resort hotels in Sandusky. We lucked out--Farrell House Lodge is just lovely. Doug, the owner, is so welcoming and friendly, and is obviously (and justifiably) proud of his beautiful B&B. He took the time to help us figure out where to head for our first dinner in town, and when we said we wanted to take a look around the grounds, he suggested a nice route for an evening walk.
Our room (#3) was large and comfortable, with a big bed, comfy chairs, tv on the wall, and plenty of closet and drawer space. (There's also free wi-fi, and we never had any trouble finding or keeping a signal.) There were lots of nice little touches around the B&B that we appreciated, too--for example, the tower fan in the bedroom closet (perfect for sleep-enabling white noise), the plastic cups in the bathroom for late-night drinks of water, and the incredibly well-stocked self-serve, honor-system snack bar on the ground floor.
Breakfast both of the mornings we were there was fantastic--coffee ready for us when we came downstairs, and several breakfast options to choose from. The first morning, we went with eggs, ham, toast and fruit, but I can't tell you what my husband had for breakfast the second morning, because all I can remember is my angel food french toast. (Yes, you read that right: ANGEL FOOD FRENCH TOAST. I now can't imagine why anyone would ever make French toast out of anything else. I don't know how often they serve it, but you should DEFINITELY request it.)
