The room was wonderful, from the fireplace to the claw foot tub. High ceilings make the room feel twice its size. The bed was perfect. Breakfast was simply great! Relaxing quiet, something I will look forward to again and again.

By all measures, this is a superb B & B–Pat’s a fine hostess, the house is beautiful, clean, decorated with both taste and whimsy. Breakfast was lovely, and the unexpected evening snacks and complementary drinks a great touch. I imagine if you asked, Pat would even change the weather for you.
A “heavenly'” experience”

This was a restful visit. Marvelously delicious food, sinking into a feather bed and a “feast” for all one’s senses far exceeded my expectations ! The hostess graciously welcomes you in her home. Everything is so comfortable and there are so many beautiful decorations to look at. I highly recommend it to all.
