    Really nice guesthouse, extremely clean and has lots of accessibility for disabled persons (wheelchair lift to upper floors, stair lifts for main area). Food was great as well. Breakfast is a bit pricey, but they serve lox and other cured meats...

    interesting decor, history and architecture. Linen was very comfortable, floor is soft so walking on it doesn't produce noise, boardgames, pictures and books everywhere
