Cozy

Chris was welcoming & hospitable. The room & bathroom was small, but we had everything we needed. It’s in walking distance to everything, which made it very convenient.

Pleasant stay.

Chris greeted us, gave us key and info, and a good breakfast. Room was clean but on small side as ceiling was sloped, nice view though. Walking distance to downtown.

Personal warmth abounds

Very intimate setting and the couple that owns it is very kind and accommodating. I was a bit nervous with it being a small bed and breakfast and when Chris contacted me about when I'd be coming in I was afraid it might be one of those situations where the people who run it would treat guests as a burden but those fears were immediately replaced with the warmth of a family inviting you into their home and the knowledge that they could impart to you aaboutthe local area and its bounties. The room was well kept and decorated in a manner that just made me smile. The parking was fine; their stand are clearly marked and the street has space as well (granted I was inn a bit of an off season), the only thing was that there are a bit of steps up to the property but it's not like it's something that try to hide; they warn you about it in advance and will do their best to accommodate you accordingly. All in all the only regret I have is that I couldn't spend more time there.
