The location was great...in the heart of the historic district so we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. It was close to the wharf and peer, downtown, the Market Square, and tons of restaurants and shops. Ms. Weed was very helpful by providing brochures, coupons and information to help us get around. We had the King bed room and found the bed very comfortable and the room quiet. Having been built in the early 1800's, the home has survived many hurricanes and earthquakes. It has a very faint musty smell as you first enter, however I found that the smell was gone by the time we walked up the steps to the room. Also, many homes this old have floors that are not exactly level. That is the case in this home, however it was very mild. My husband and I thought our room charming, and we loved the fact that it was so old and enduring. We only found a few notes, and having rented our home before, we know from experience that not everyone knows how to treat "real wood" furniture" and bathrooms in a truly old home. It only takes 1 out of 100 people to ruin an antique chair or table - something not easily replaced. The TV was small and older, but we didn't mind as we only watched the news for a brief time. Outside, the paint was peeling, but inside was clean and had been lovingly decorated with very nice antiques. We had a wonderful breakfast that was very satisfying and delicious. We also had fun meeting the other guests while we enjoyed our breakfast. For what we needed, this was a great place for us to stay, and we would definitely return.
