Stayed one night while visiting my alma mater Bucknell for a basketball game and had a wonderful stay at the Tawsty Flower. We were in the blue room - small, but very clean and nicely furnished. And who really needs anything but that? The owners/hosts were very nice, breakfast was satisfying (cereals, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice/coffee), and the bed was unbelievably comfortable. It is also in a great location - surrounded by nicely maintained (and quiet) historic homes and within easy walking distance to both campus and the center of Market Street (main street with restaurants, shops, bars, etc.). I prefer private bathrooms in B&Bs, which is the set-up at Tawsty Flower. Just be sure you are comfortable with your traveling partner because of the tight quarters and old doors/walls :) I have never stayed at the other B&Bs in town (just the chain hotels) so I cannot directly compare, but I will definitely stay at the Tawsty Flower again when in town.
