Lovely first B&B experience!
This my first time staying in a B&B and I really loved it! Friendly, knowledgable and welcoming staff. It was quiet and quaint. Delicious breakfast (especially the bacon!) In a beautiful setting. Convenient location to the downtown area. We played board games in the beautiful parlor after dinner. It felt like a small step back in time but with modern amenities. Private bathroom and air conditioning in the room. While there werne tother guests during our stay (we were the for one night on a monday) it felt like having a house that would be filled with friends.

Schickes historisches Hotel, jedoch so historisch, dass einige Zimmer keinen WiFi-Empfang haben. Jedoch war das Hotelpersonal so flexibel, ein Zimmer mit Internetzugang zu vergeben.
