My wife and I stayed at this beautiful old house for a nice night. Quiet and close to the university. Breakfast was a gourmet treat. Parking right at the house, nice snacks, coffee and tea in he evening. Would recommend.

We travelled as a family of three in January and had a charming stay. Comfortable, cozy and quaint, with a delicious breakfast each morning! I loved being able to read and play games in the living room with the sunlight streaming through, and will definitely be back!

This is a beautifully restored Victorian home. Rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished. Very clean. Host is very personable and friendly and the breakfast was delicious and filling! Parking on-site and close to downtown to walk to restaurants, pubs and attractions.

We have visited this wonderful B and B quite a few times in the last few years and I'm so happy to tell you that the quality of the inn and our experience there is unchanged as perhaps the nicest place we have ever stayed.

Very nice B&B within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the downtown area. Had a wonderful, spacious room on the 2nd floor and enjoyed a tasty breakfast. The owner was very nice and accommodating and gave us some dining suggestions. (We only spent one night). Definitely would stay there again

We stayed here due to its' excellent proximity to campus and downtown. We were delighted. The House is old and charming. The rooms are clean and spacious. There are 3 common areas suitable for small groups to socialize. The breakfasts are good although there are no choices offered. Parking is easy. We would gladly stay here again.

Thank you for your kind words and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Due to the size of the Inn I am unable to offer multiple choices for breakfast but certainly I'm happy to accommodate all dietary requirements - vegetarian, vegan, gluten, lactose, low salt, etc - when asked. I hope you will visit again!

This beautifully maintained Victorian was just what we wanted. Breakfasts were to die for, our room was cozy, and the host is lovely. The Secret Garden is situated on a quiet corner and within easy walking distance to the historic waterfront, shops and a plethora of good restaurants.
