We arrived on a misty, overcast day but were warmly welcomed by caretakers, Nancy & Ralph and a crackling fire in the hearth! We had intended to stay in one of the upper rooms but were pleased to hear the large bedroom downstairs was available so we took that and couldn't have been happier. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, and the bed was bliss!
My husband enjoyed talking about the property with Ralph and Nancy was so helpful with tidbits about the college and where to eat. Breakfast was tasty, filling and leisurely and we were sorry to only be staying one night! We plan to return for a longer visit to this lovely town and our exceptional hosts!
