A lovely big old home, comfy bed and room, very gracious hosts and nice breakfast. Located across the river from town but that is still close to all the restaurants and local attractions. Would recommend booking here.

Very personable hosts, and an immaculate, thoughtfully decorated home. This is the way B&Bs should be! Their attention to detail is exemplary, and though we've visited a number of B&Bs, this is our favorite.
