Very nice staff. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful historic house. Only minor issue was the bed/mattress had a pretty bad dead spot in one area, like bad springs or just an old mattress.

A wonder and unique experience to be able to stay in such a beautifully decorated and historical b&b. Each room had its own theme and color scheme, which we were lucky enough to sneak a peek at each, as well as cozy private balconies (THE HITCHCOCK ROOM aka BLUE ROOM IS THE BEST!) The breakfast was absolutely delicious and some of the THE BEST personal French press coffee you will ever taste. I will no doubt be back again in the future!

Tammy was very welcoming and so gracious. She even took us to our restaurant and picked us up afterward. We also enjoyed the happy hour in the newly decorated salon. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious and we loved the edition of the French Press coffee. Can’t wait to return.

Such a good experience. So much more than a place to stay. Staff make you feel like family. The place is super nice and the free breakfast was so good. Not your typical hotel breakfast.
