Beautiful, Historic and Cozy
This Bed and Breakfast took me into a different time zone. It was so pretty and historic. Tammy the host was amazing and so helpful. Everything was so clean and the room was just perfect. The only complain I have is the room was very hot so it made it difficult to sleep. They did have the A/C repaired but the room didn't get cool until the next morning. All the rooms are located upstairs so if you have issues climbing stairs this is not the place for you. Schaefer Haus is located near the strand so if you are spending the day at the strand this is a nice place to stay.
