*So many people wonder what makes a “guest house” different than a bed and breakfast, or similar to an inn.  Here at Lionel Champlin House, we offer private rooms with individual bathrooms (like a hotel or inn), common sitting rooms (like an inn or B&B) and caring, on-premises proprietors (very much like a B and B).  However, we do not offer full breakfast— instead providing coffee/tea and light snacks for guests in a common area. Since the sprouting up of several wonderful breakfast places within walking distance, our guests have told us they find the privacy, pricing, and flexibility of this kind of arrangement preferable, hence usage of the term “guest house.” We welcome your visit no matter what you call our special place and hope you enjoy your time on this very special island in the bay…
