We have been here several times and continue to enjoy everything they have to offer. From the gorgeous rooms and super comfy beds to the delicious breakfasts. The location is centrally located to all shops, restaurants and attractions.

Fabulous interiors, lovely staff, interesting, foodie snacks and clean, clean, clean! Hoping to plan an annual weekend get-away here this fall. Can't wait to return! Everything was perfect, from the in-town location to numerous cozy seating areas, including a great deck to sit and relax.

About the innkeepers

We are both trained chefs and have a huge passion for the hotel industry. Working together over the years with different schedules was just not doing it for us, so we decided to pursue a position in the B&B industry to have similar schedules and work together in the same business. Our hobbies include bike riding, long walks on the beach, flying kites, fishing, reading, and snowboarding. Our favorite part of our job is creating the menus for breakfast and interacting with the hotel guests.
