    “a wonderful couple of weeks in a beautiful locatio”

    Everything in the B&B was immaculate, the bathroom, carpeting, bedding was all clean and fresh. Everyone was cheerful, friendly, and helpful, answering questions, giving directions, etc. Extremely good value. Inexpensive but a really great room. I can't imagine a more convenient location, short walk to bus, shops, and interesting places to see.
