Absolutely stunning property. Most of the house contains original features, including beautiful woodwork and windows. Highly recommend The Library, a huge and impressive room complete with spacious whirlpool bath. In addition to the beauty, the owner is warm and welcoming. Cannot praise it enough!

I loved the furnishings of the house. The host was very knowledgeable about its history. No views from my room but I loved the front porch. Was extremely disappointed there was no breakfast!!! When I stay at a b & b I expect breakfast because I’ve paid for it. Will try a different place next time.

Good 6.0
It was a very pretty B&B. It included the bed but NO Breakfast unless you wanted to pay an extra $15 per meal. NO housekeeping during our 4 day stay. No clean towels or anything. Not cool. It was a very odd stay. Fortunately, we had a busy schedule and weren't in our room much.
