Guest Comments:

“Beautiful home with Wonderful Hosts”

Stayed in the Rose Suite with our family of four. Beautiful room. The breakfast was outstanding, especially the peach French toast…WOW! The owners are sweet and hospitable. They host a wine and cheese mixer that was pleasant and gave us a chance to visit with them and the other guests. They go above and beyond to insure you have a great visit. I highly recommend this B&B and hope to come back!
