*Not that there’s anything WRONG with Holiday Inns.


  1. Ooooookaaaayyyy…

  2. o.m.g. I’ve said it before and I’m sayin’ it now, there really is such a thing as too darn cute. Stop it! I can’t take it anymore. are there any vacancies? Love this. Love C.O. xxx am HUGE, dog-like devotedly FaN of CO.

  3. When I saw the first photo I tought: 8O you go in through the … well “under the tail” if you know what I mean ;-)
    I’m a little disapointed that you don’t, you have to admit it would of been funny :lol:

  4. Must. Go. There!!!!

  5. Umm, I think the flickr user is Alan Levine, not the Maroon 5 singer ;)

  6. You’re right! D’oh! And I don’t even know Maroon 5.

  7. I’ve STAYED THERE! And it’s fabulous. The owners are lovely people

  8. where is it?

    I want my house to look like this. Or a giant kitteh–whichever, it’s all good.

  10. this is kind of OCD

    but so is stamping out eleventy billion identical holiday inns

    this OCD is better than their OCD

  11. I live a couple of towns away from this little B&B and pass it on the highway on a regular basis.

  12. Is it as wonderful as it looks??? Can we all come and visit you and stay there?

  13. Never actually stayed there, alas. I just pass it on the highway.

    But do they allow pets?

    I just looked at all kinds of reviews and it appears that they do indeed. AND the structure’s name appears to be Sweet Willy!!!

  16. I’ve stayed here a couple of times. It’s completely charming and the owners are lovely people.

  17. My family and I have stayed at the B&B a few times and this is an amazing place. The owners are wonderful and very knowledgeable of things to see in the area. They love kiddo’s and you are able to bring your doggie. Please go you wont regret it in anyway.

  18. “Things to see in the area?” What else could there possibly be??

  19. I used to drive past this B&B when I would travel from college to home. So cute, but I’ve never been inside!

  20. For some reason, this reminds me forcibly of the Trojan Horse. I’m not up on the mythology, but I think maybe the horse was sacred to the Trojans, so it was the best animal to leave (to make sure they’d take it in the city). But even then, they did debate whether or not to do it. If it’d been the Trojan Puppy, surely there’d have been no debate. Just a lot of Awwwwwing as they hauled the thing inside.

    Has no one noticed the huge Fire Hydrant in the Garden? Pic2

    Oooh! Oooh! I did! I noticed the fire hydrant! Am I seeing things, or did anyone else notice what appears to be a toaster with two slices of bread in Pic 1? I don’t know the significance, but it’s cute.

  23. DewiCasGwent says:

    Well it is a bed and breakfast!

  24. MusicFan87 says:

    There it is! Now that makes sense! :-)
    SO adorable.
