This place (can't call it a BNB since they do not serve breakfast) is close enough to walk to the bars and restaurants, yet far enough away that you can get away from the bustle.
We did not have a reservation, but just stopped in to see what was available. The staff was accommodating and friendly--nice since we stopped by right at 7 pm when they innkeeper was just about "off duty".
The room was comfortable and clean. We only stayed one night, but would have been happy to stay longer. The porch and coffee area are quaint and a nice place to sit and relax.
I can't remember our room number, but we paid $135 for the night in the middle of August.
