I would say that overall the experience was good. I am really fond of the staff. They are very friendly and welcoming. Overall I would say it was a good experience. Although, I would have preferred if Abigail (one of the essential workers) to have been dressed in a less formalized attire. The attire she is required to wear looks uncomfortable and hard to work in. I think a simple jean and standard black/white golf shirt would be perfect.

A relaxing stay close to the office with Friendly staff. Many options for Takeout that are delivered to the B&B. Breakfast was good, was nice to sit outside and eat. Wifi is available but not for streaming, would be nice if streaming was available without additional costs.
