We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The suite was very nicely decorated and the innkeeper very friendly. The only feedback we have that would have improved our stay is the provision of more choices for breakfast. We probably should have asked about the food options, but were a little hesitant to ask because we didn't want to appear ungrateful for the items we did have. Our ideal self serve B&B breakfast would probably include bagles with cream cheese, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice and coffee at minimum. Because we had cooking facilities, a half doz eggs, and maybe some pancake mix would have been a nice addition. There were 4 of us in the room, so the food amounts needed to be increased to reflect that too. A blow dryer would have been a great addition to the bathroom supplies as well. Again, in all fairness to the owner, we never asked if some of this could have been provided....we were in and out a lot and somewhat apart from the other guest rooms. Perhaps the breakfast is done a little differently in the main house area.
