Sweet, Lovely, Comfortable, Friendly

4.0 on November 26, 2013

167 is a 5-10 minute walk from the downtown, and closer to a great birdwatching spot. Chuck and Anne are great hosts, interesting and fun to talk with. These review stars are sort of odd. If I expected a place to be really terrific and it is, is that "met expectations", exceeded expectations", or "outstanding"? This place is great!


Lovely

The house/room are very comfortable. The best though, I think, was the breakfast! There were lots of lovely options! And it is clear that Anne and Chuck have enjoyed their travels, the decor reflects that. It was a lovely stay!


Wonderful stay
