After over two decades in the nurturing hands of the Johnson family, an emotional decision was made to pass the torch and sell this 130-year-old Victorian jewel box to Michaele O'Neill. The former owners couldn't have chosen a more passionate innkeeper to breathe new life into the B&B. It's easy to tell that O'Neill, a mother of three and a yoga teacher, was meant to do this. Greeting each guest by name, she makes you truly feel at home, more like family than a guest. A hot gourmet breakfast presented tableside is served every morning from 8:30am to 10am. There are freshly baked sweets every afternoon and complimentary wine, sodas, coffee, tea, and bottled water. If you need Wi-Fi, it's available in the parlor. The main house has 11 rooms, each furnished simply, yet immaculately and comfortably. They all have decanters of sherry for that warm, old-fashioned, spirited touch. I recommend the Masters Room (renovated in 2013), located upstairs and featuring a king-sized oak bed, or the Pittman Room (also renovated in 2013), with its electric fireplace and king-sized cherry wood bed. For couples, larger groups, and families with kids 13 and under, The Cottage, down the street, is an 1885 clapboard house with a living room, mini-kitchen, and a two-person Jacuzzi. The B&B's location in the heart of the historic district is a major plus, and even better is the free use of the inn's bicycles, which makes it easy to tool around and explore the city.
