My boyfriend and I just visited the Always Inn to celebrate our six-year anniversary, and I was impressed. It was our first time staying at a B&B, and it definitely made us excited to return.

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast, and it was a peaceful, enjoyable weekend. My husband and I were there on our 2nd anniversary.
