Nothing This is not a B&B. No sign outside. It was a spare, unlocked room in someone's house. Yard unkempt. Little furniture --odds and ends. Grimy. I would not have wanted to sit down, sleep, or eat breakfast anywhere there. Very disappointed. We found another place to stay.
The owners are very nice and were warm and friendly we chatted for 1.5 or 2 hours after my arrival and I really enjoyed them. Their dog is also very nice and adds to the charm. I like watching the "This Old House" style of TV show and it was fun to stay with a couple who like to rehab older homes. It is a work in progress, but everything was neat and tidy by my arrival and whatever projects they are working on were not a hindrance to my stay. Breakfast was fresh pancakes, bacon and sliced fresh strawberries and french pressed coffee ... WAY better than a hotel lobby breakfast!! The cement contractor showed up around 6:30 AM to finish working on the front sidewalk. The owners had tried to reschedule his work, but they were unsuccessful. It was a noisy way to start the day, but it was a "one time only" work project and won't be an issue for any other guests.
Nice proprietors. Facilities are quite run-down. Exposed beams and wall insulation in the bathroom, creaky floors, drapes held up by loose nails.
Pleasant host and hostess and delightful dog! Hard to find! 9:00 is too late to serve breakfast for someone who is traveling that day! Not that I was sorry to miss it after she told me is was scrambled eggs - I am more used to things like quiche, breakfast casserole, etc. at BB's! The host finally reluctantly agreed to come downstairs to carry our my luggage at that time. I was not able to handle it on the front steps because there is NO railing on the lower portion!
Our hosts were personable and charming and their dog non-intrusive. A light breakfast of fresh food was welcome after a late night. The guest rooms and bath are clean. Bedroom decor is simple and soothing. The house has great bones and good potential. We were in town for a concert and liked being able to walk just a mile to Bogart's on Vine. Good value and met our needs. The place has zero curb appeal, not an obstacle for us, but has potential to discourage others. Long term ongoing renovations make this place more appropriate as AirBnB than a true B&B as the common areas remain in progress. Some people would be put off by the kitchen facilities such as they are, but that's for the hosts to work out, and they made my breakfast in there without a hitch, so none of my business.
Peaceful and the historical history of this establishment. We were upgraded at no extra cost to private king room with on suite bathroom. The mix up of reservations as the main house had a private party. We didn't get offered breakfast. The party ran in to early morning.
