We are a group of 8 and we stayed 1 night in Foster home Bed and breakfast, sleeps 18. Nanette is so nice and helpful. She really made us feel at home. The B&B is comfortable, clean and tidy. Basically it has all the things we needed. I would recommend this place to other guests, especially those who travel in group or with families.
