We were told it was due to the 2 jacuzzi tubs in other rooms that were taking the water. We were told there would be gf accommodations in regards to the breakfast but it was only...

Rooms were clean yet small. Breakfasts were yummy. Owners were pleasant and helpful. Would stay again for sure. House was 140 years old and beautiful. Enjoyed relaxing on the patio. Our room had a two person swing on our private patio.

This was the first time ever staying in a B&B. Rooms were wonderful, comfy bed, and breakfast was amazing, cheese and wine in the afternoon was so comfy you could sit on the covered patio and meet other visitors. This was by far an experience I loved. Will be doing this again. Everyone at the INN was so nice and...

Location, location,...

The afternoon wine and snacks - which was an unexpected bonus - gave us the perfect time to relax after a busy...

This is a really great B and B. The breakfast was very delicious. The owner was very accommodating, remade my eggs benedict to make sure the eggs were cooked well done. We love the afternoon wine and snacks (cookies, cheese, crackers). Within walking distance to downtown. Free parking for your car. The B and B is very clean and run...

It was close to veranda and breakfast room---a plus! Owners are very friendly and accommodating . Wonderful breakfast both days. The best location to walk to all the wonderful historic sites...
