What a gorgeous house. And unlike many of her age, the home has been updated beautifully in keeping with the original design. Huge wide window sills, lots of oak woodwork, even the inglenooks remain. It's wonderful. The Longwood Suite is artfully tucked at the top of the staircase facing the rear courtyard. It's a large bedroom and sitting room arrangement. The bathroom was large for a B&B. There are little Asian influenced touches throughout. And care has been taken to make you comfortable. Breakfast is generally fresh fruit, tea or coffee, and the entree of the day. Seating can be three couples to a table so you'll get to know the other guests. If you have dietary concerns you should bring them up when you book. Would stay again.
