"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!!"
