Clean room, Very old, needs updating. Buttons in center of faucets all missing as were the plastic handles for the ceiling lite and fan. Very difficult to get into jet tub/ shower for seniors. No elevator, lots of steps.

New Owners- Not as Nice as Before
This was our second time at this B&B. It was obvious there were new owners. I never once met the innkeeper. Breakfast was continental, coffee we had to brew in a Keurig in our room with no half and half available. The room smelled so damp, musty and moldy and the smell never dissipated. I know these things may seem petty but when you want to have a weekend get away, you want it to be nice. Cheryl B.

such a quaint place. its not at all what you expect, looks like someone’s but the place has so much character, and the owners were so accommodating and wonderful people. its within walking distance to the bay front, and we ended up at a rooftop bar that had incredible food, drinks, and a view of the sunset over the bay. would choose that place again if we were in town

Lovely Downtown Getaway
Pete and Julie are lovely folks who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was special! They took great care of us and were super helpful about things to do in the local area. The location is fantastic; everything is within walking distance. The Inn has heaps of character and charm, although the bathrooms and windows could use updating. Overall, it is a sweet, romantic place to stay, mainly due to location, price and the wonderful property managers.

Very nice stay, nice area and friendly service. Bathroom had a bit of a bug problem, lots of small bugs flying around. May want to tend to that.

Great little Inn

One Night Stay
Room was great. The house is only minutes away from food and fun. the AC, in our room, is a wall unit which wasn't bad as far as noise is concerned. The only Issue I found is the light from the hallway comes in through the door frame and kept me awake for a while. I like a dark room for sleeping.
