This place has got to be the cleanest B&B I’ve ever seen. In fact, it’s cleaner than anyone’s house I’ve ever seen -- including my own. Another related plus, is the incredibly fresh air and the beautiful surroundings. The renovation that the owners have done on this house is stunning.
The room itself was pretty standard for a nice B&B and as described on the web site. A nice feature is the phone in the room with a direct line to call the owners. It seems less invasive than knocking on their door if you need something.
A word of warning: if you are not light on your feet: the shower/Jacuzzi is quite slippery and is not easy to get in and out of. There is no grab bar and the edges of the sliding door are not pleasant to land on. The Jacuzzi is very comfortable and clean. However, I did not care for the feature that it automatically spews bubbles. I’d like to have the option of clear water or adding bubble bath myself. On the plus side, you definitely do not have to shower before taking a soak; we are talking a lot of bubbles.
Although the view is spectacular, if you do like the outdoors, you might be disappointed that there really is nowhere to walk on or around the grounds.
Now for the real disappointment: we both thought the breakfast was terrible. For me, one of the pleasures of a B&B is a scrumptious breakfast prepared by people who love food. I know it’s not to everyone’s taste, but I do enjoy something sweet with my breakfast. However this breakfast went way overboard. A very sweet quickbread/coffee cake was followed by a small egg dish and a large serving of French toast/waffles. Quality was mixed. One day there was a nice smattering of fruit. The other day the fruit was absolutely hard and not edible, at least not by me. The French toast was mushy and the quiche made with what was apparently a frozen crust.
In sum, the accommodations are nice … the breakfast not so much.
