My husband and I stayed at The Inn by the Bandstand and found the experience very pleasing. Our room was the smallest of the bunch (it was a Living Social deal), but it was clean with a comfy bed, nice sheets and a fireplace. I am not a fan of B&B's because a lot of times there is a lot of face-to-face time with strangers and for me, it is a bit much when you are on vacation. The innkeepers Jim and Kate strike a really nice balance -- they are there when you need them or want to chat in a fire-placed living room and they let you have you privacy when you need it. Plus the breakfast is served in a dining room at individual tables seating 2-4 people, so you don't need to chat with strangers unless you want to. Breakfast was your basic hot eggs/bacon/pancakes, but the coffee was nice and strong and the service was great. Lots of little great restaurants in walking distance and most of them give you 15-20% discount if you show them your room key. Nice walking trails all over as well. And don't forget the local vineyards, all within 20-40 min drive. Listen to Kate -- she gave us the best food advise as far as the restaurants go! We will definitely go back!!!!
