12. Can I bring my children and pet?
We know that your children are well behaved and travel often; however, we cannot accommodate them if they are under the age of 12. We are not child proof and we want to be respectful of other guests that are here to escape their own. As much as we love our pets, we cannot accept them at our Inn as well.
13. Do all the rooms have a view of the water?
Yes. In fact, we are the only B & B in town that has all guest rooms facing the water with an outdoor deck and lounge seating per room.
14. You have 3 floors at the inn, how do I know which floor to choose?
The Inn sits high on the banks of the canal, therefore all 3 floors have excellent water views. Beyond that, it's all based on your preferences. You may want to choose the third floor if you want to sunbathe, since there is no roof overhead. Additionally, there are no guestrooms overhead. If you like to sit in the shade, either the first or second floor offer covered decks. The first floor is ideal if you need a handicap accessible room or have any limitations with stairs.
15. I'm getting married. Can you accommodate my wedding party and guests?
We most certainly can. Please give us a call and we'll tell you how. Whether it's one room or the whole house, we would be happy to have you stay with us on your special occasion.
