We had a lovely stay at the Inn! Jim is a wonderful host and, after hearing a little bit about our plans, gave us some great recommendations for pre-dinner drinks in the area. Our room was very comfortable, and as other reviewers have mentioned, breakfast was fantastic! We highly recommend this B&B and look forward to a return visit.
