This B & B is beautiful, inside and out. The hard wood finishes and intricate trim instantly remind you that you're in a very old house. The furnishings are a mixture of history, with pieces ranging from the late 1800's to the 1920's and on up to modern day. I'd say the house is heavily decorated, not cluttered.
We stayed for two nights in the Dolphin Room. This room is more like a small apartment and has its own balcony. There is a large armoire that separates the sitting room from the bedroom w/ private bath - toilet, small walk-in shower & sink. The entire room is lined with windows, but there are sufficient curtains for privacy. If you're not extremely modest, keep the curtains open. The all around view is incredible, and one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen (and I've seen my fair share of tear-jerking sunsets).
Aside from the aesthetic beauty of the house and landscape, one of the biggest perks for me was the dog-friendliness! We have two very spoiled fur kids that go everywhere with us. The grounds are completely fenced in and the B & B requires that your pets be well-behaved and picked up after. Our dogs had a blast playing with the resident, white standard poddle named Sasha! The B & B is in a great location too. It was a scenic five-minute walk to the wharf, where there are lots of great shops and restaurants. Some shops even kept water bowls outside for passing canine friends!
