This is my first time trying a B&B, but even with that limited experience, I won't hesitate to rate this place as "excellent."
From the time we arrived through breakfast the next morning, Susan was an awesome host. She even offered us a free upgrade to a larger room when we arrived. We ended up declining because we liked the coziness of our room, the Ruby G, and its view of the garden outside. Also, the Ruby G is literally right off the dining area. I saw that as a plus because we'd definitely know when breakfast was served by the noise outside (breakfast is promptly served at 8:15am).
Speaking of breakfast, it was like a home-cooked meal and it was delicious! It certainly helps that the weather was terrific. We were able to enjoy our quiche, peaches (presumably picked from their trees), danishes, bacon, coffee, and OJ outside on their garden patio.
I think that's the allure of the B&B. It's more like you're a guest at someone's house, not unlike the experiences I've had so far with CouchSurfing. As a result, all of the other guests are friendly as well.
Oh and the proximity to SUU and the Shakespeare Festival is definitely a plus. It's a quick 5-minute walk--just a small block away--to the Randall L. Jones Theatre.
