A perfect evening

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quiet night to reflect on the past 18 years before leaving my daughter at college. It was a perfect evening. Gary and Fiona suggested several fun spots to eat, get ice cream and see the local sights. We sat on the deck by a fire under the stars. Peaceful and serene. The beds were comfy and breakfast delicious. Loved the beautiful historic building. We wish you weren't booked for parents weekend. I should have stayed 2 nights to recover before driving 1600 miles home.

The house is beautiful. The hosts are kind and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and healthy.

  • 5 of 5

After two nights in this beautiful home, I felt that I had made new friends. The hosts were flexible, friendly, and kind. They provided breakfast when it was most convenient for me and they were attentive to my dietary restrictions. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast if you want to stay on a quiet, beautiful property, with an easy walk to a lovely lake.

Friendly hosts, well appointed home

  • 4 of 5

Very nice hosts, welcoming, friendly and respectful of privacy too. The house is well appointed, comfortable, and historically charming. Traffic sounds from the nearby road bothered me a bit.
