Pros: Breakfast was a choice of three items: eggs, french toast, pancakes. Each day they were done differently. There was an appetizer first, with juice and coffee. Very delicious both days. The location was perfect - within walking distance to many sites. Our room was very clean. There was a wine and lemonade hour each day which was a nice way to meet the others staying at the home.
Cons: Our bedroom was very cramped. The name of the room should have given us a clue - Duck Inn. The door to the bathroom was cut down the middle and needed to be latched at the top and in the middle yet never really did close all the way. We never figured out the t.v. but that was probably us and wasn't a big deal.
Pros: Friendly staff and engaging owners with wonderful stories.
Cons: Next time I think we will book a downstairs room as we get older it's harder to take luggage up and down stairs. (Nothing wrong with the Aerie it's just we are getting older)
Pros: The bed was very comfortable, the breakfast each day was gourmet and exceptional! The location was perfect for walking to most anything you would want to do. The owners were very nice and a great resource for things to do in the area. In the late afternoon you could mingle with other guests on the patio with wine and cheese. The owners had thought of every aminity. Highly recommend!
Cons: Our stay was for three nights. Too short!
