My husband and I were travelling from Boston to Virginia and needed a place to spend the night. We had stayed at this inn a few years before and decided to go a little out of our way and stay here again, since our first visit was very positive. We arrived in the early evening and checked ourselves in. We knew that the self check in was the way this inn is run and that was fine. We stayed in the first floor Joshua room, which is very nice. We had a good night sleep although you do hear a lot of street noise in the front bedroom. We were the only guests at the inn that night. The first time we stayed there, there were several other guests, so there were other people around the inn. It felt a little odd to be completely alone that night. We didn't see the owner/innkeeper until the next morning at breakfast. We went into the dining room and Lyndell served us a very average breakfast. It was store bought hash browns with an egg on top and some cheese and bacon. The dessert was canned blueberry cobbler. It was a very different experience than the first time we stayed at this inn. Perhaps the breakfast is different if she has several guest? What bothered us the most about the whole stay was that Lyndell didn't even say goodbye. We took about 30 minutes to load our car and she didn't even come out and speak to us. She new that we were leaving because we settled our bill after breakfast. We have stayed at over a dozen B&B's and this is the first time we felt that we weren't really welcome. Perhaps it was an off day for her, but we will not be back!
