“The Garden Room was perfection. The bedroom and sittig room were lovely, spacious and very comfortable. The porch was an added bonus. Sitting outside and reading in the quiet of the country was a pleasure.”
“The Boardman House B&B was delightful! From the moment of warm welcome until the final farewell, we felt like we were home. The house, itself, is restored to a tee, with taste and character. If we are ever in the area again, I will look forward to staying there!!”
“Do not tell anyone about this place because I always want to be able to stay here. I think one of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.”
True to its original role as a private residence, The Boardman House Inn embraces guests with genuine, warm and intuitive service ensuring that each guest feels as they were visiting a friend’s home.
