This was the second time we stayed there. We loved it the first time…so went back. It’s very clean, the breakfasts are wonderful. This is a privately owned B&B…They stay in a section of the house. I stay in B&Bs all the time…and most have hired people and there is no one there in the evening. It’s very homey. Comfortable. Some of the things she serves with the great breakfast are from their own garden…such as sun ripened tomatoes. One of the things I love, is you walk out of your room and smell breakfast cooking. We set in the common area, I would call living room , and chatted with the couple who own it, while they were cooking.- Paula D., FL, via facebook
