We booked this place for ourselves and our friends to stay the night before a cruise.
When we saw the place itself, we were shocked! We scrambled to find something else, but of course, everything was booked as many cruise guests were in town.
I was so furious with previous reviewers for using words like "lovely" and "fantastic" and "beautiful" in their reviews.
Yes, Patricia is an absolutely wonderful person and she works really really hard to run this business and the free ride to the port is a huge perk, but the common area, bathrooms and rooms are like someone's funky old summer cottage.
Our "headboard" was a piece of board with fabric sort of stapled to it, hanging on a hook above the bed. It fell off.
Our guests bathroom door frame had been "repaired" with some kind of putty in a completely unprofessional and shabby way. We could hear everything from one bathroom to the next. The wall must be very thin. There was an odd musty smell in the room we booked for our guests. The table in the common area is old and damaged. The garden was full of piles of branches and the yard near the driveway was messy. We were mortified as we had told our guests we found a great place.
The coffee is absolutely fantastic - we drank many cups of it in the morning and the pizza from up the street is really good. We ordered the sampler. Patricia is a reason to stay there because she is so delightful and helpful but keep in mind that the accommodation is not first rate.
Again, a reminder to Reviewers: the words "fantastic" "lovely" or "beautiful" place do not describe the interior of this B&B. Tripadvisor reviewers should keep these superlatives for outstanding lodgings.
