Not the typical historic building or neighborhood, this large suburban home in a quiet suburban neighborhood offers plenty of space. We were 4 women traveling together. I stayed in the lower level, which was not at all damp, and had access to a large living room area and double doors which opened to the beautiful pool area. Another friend stayed...

The B&B was in a very nice neighborhood, well-landscaped, and very inviting. The breakfasts were delicious, and our hosts were always available to make our stay enjoyable. The salt water swimming pool was refreshing and our accommodations were superb. We definitely intend to return.

It has EVERYTHING a great B&B should have, including terrific hosts. Shell and Ned are so friendly and welcoming, you really do feel like "family". Breakfasts are full...
