We very much enjoyed our stay at Stepping Stone Inn. John was a wonderful host, gave great recommendations and was very helpful and accomodating to all our needs. The inn was kept immaculately clean and had wonderful charm in it's decoration. Our bathroom was private but outside of the room but was no problem with privacy as no other room opened to our hallway. The breakfast was indeed a continental breakfast as advertised but the coffee cake or banana bread while thinly cut was fresh, tasty and plenty in supply. You could have had multiple pieces without inconveniencing others. Fresh fruit was also served every morning in a variety of types from cantelope, strawberries, blueberries and fresh pineapple. Various cereals, milk, juice, tea and coffee were also provided.
You will not find shampoo or other amenities in the room or bathrooms, but in my experience that's fairly typical of many bed and breakfasts. Bath towels and soap were provided. We were also pleased with the free wireless internet provided in the rooms.
If you're in for a bit of a historic experience this inn was built in the 1800's and if your looking for a ghostly experience there was definitely a presence that historic buildings always seem to hold. No ghost stories per say that we found out but it definitely added to the charm.
