“The Garden Room was perfection. The bedroom and sittig room were lovely and spacious. The porch was an added bonus. Sitting outside and with a book in the quiet of the country was a pleasure.”
“The 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 stayed in.”
