We rented a two-bedroom suite at the Dufton House, a second property for those who run the Stone Maiden Inn. It was clean and fine. The house is located on a nice street about 1.5km from the Festival Theatre. The beds were comfortable and the shower was excellent. The suite was very clean and quiet. It wasn't clear to us on booking that we were staying at the Dufton House rather than the Stone Maiden so would suggest clarifying. The rooms are not overly large and the style of decor is eclectic with a lot of antique furniture, much of it more for show than comfort or utility - not really my taste but quite traditional for a bed and breakfast.

The room was very clean and well laid out. The bed was very comfortable. The neighborhood was very quiet. Parking on the street right in front of the building was very convenient. The price was very reasonable. The location was close to everything. No complaints.

Dufton House is a charming older building a few blocks north of the river and downtown. Our suite, which included bedroom, bathroom, and small kitchenette, was elegantly appointed and well maintained. It was a charming place to stay for a long weekend, and Johanne and Tim were gracious hosts. The daily gourmet breakfast was served at a separate, equally delightful property about a ten-minute walk away. My only suggestion would be that coffee (in addition to tea bags) be provided for the Keurig coffee maker in the kitchenette.

Fantastic Place to Stay!
This was a fantastic place to stay. It was close to town, and quiet and comfortable. We had a king bed in one room and a queen in the other and a sunroom with a garden was wonderful. Oh, and the BEST shower ever! Nice full stream of water in what looked like a fairly newly rennovated glassed in shower.....fantastic....loved it......I would definitely stay there again!
