My wife and I stayed here for two nights. It is a pretty, well-maintained B&B. The host, Al, was very gregarious and regaled with stores and history of the home. We stayed in the Blue Room which was spacious, but sounds could be easily be heard through the door to the joining room. My neighbor joked to me that she thought I was I in her room with her. The bathroom was very small. The window didn't open. So, we had to use the a/c even though we did not need it. I was surprised to find that a clock radio was not available. The breakfast was the same each morning with a slice of melon with a fruit puree and a homemade muffin. Cereal was also available. Our host was very helpful in assisting us to find restaurants. One of the rooms on the main floor has a pool table which was fun. There was a small porch on the second floor which was pleasant for a predinner drink. The Inn is an historic district. We took walking tours of the surrounding area and were able to walk to the downtown to our restaurant (less than a mile).
