Though I travel frequently I am reluctant to stay at B&Bs for three reasons I expect are common. First, I do not always want to converse with lodge proprietors and fellow guests (despite the fact that I have many close friends I met while traveling.)Second, I don't always want to get dressed early in the morning to have breakfast with others. Third, occasionally the furnishings of B&Bs are often more precious than practical. I recently stayed at Chelsea Station which allayed all my concerns. Check in was all arranged in advance so your room key is waiting in an envelope on the front door upon arrival. The delicious breakfast can be brought to one's room. The large suites are not only beautiful but practical as well. The management person we briefly conversed with was very helpful and friendly. The one and a half bathrooms per suite were a real luxury. Whether you are a big fan of B&Bs or have been leery of trying one I highly recommend Chelsea Station.
