We enjoyed our brief stay at the Albion Inn very much. The innkeeper, Cyd, was very welcoming and easy to talk with. She was available for lively conversation, but did not hover or push. Breakfast was delicious and made from organic foods. While the food was good, my favorite part of breakfast was the conversation with Cyd and the other guests after the meal. I've never stayed at a b and b before this trip, and I enjoyed the sit down breakfast much more than I expected to. The room was icely decorated, but somewhat small for me and my friend. We had a room with two twin beds ( that could also be one king bed). While the room was pleasant and airy, with views of the beautiful gardens, the beds were kind of bouncy and shook from side to side when you moved. My friend actually fell out of hers when she first tried to get on it. Other than this, it was a perfect stay. We had use of common areas, including a TV room, sitting room, dining room, and a small fridge for guests in a kitchenette. There was even a special faucet for hot water for tea, as well as a guest coffee maker. There was also a computer available and free wiFi.We enjoyed the garden, the art work ( mostly made by one of the innkeepers, and for sale), and the atmosphere of the place. Most of all, we enjoyed the intelligent conversation and accommodating nature of our innkeeper. We had to leave before breakfast time on our last day, and they actually packed us a hearty and healthy breakfast for the road. I don't know if all bed and breakfasts are like this, but I was really blown away by this place.
