Don and Lorraine are the key to this B&B. Their earnest concern for each guest's welfare, day's activities and and next destination create a warm and supportive environment. Don's well-timed and delicious breakfasts, quite varied, are a great start to the day, including Lorraine's ever-changing muffins that usually end up as welcome take-away treats for morning treks. The lofts are...
