John & Amy really are the perfect hosts, that rare thing in the hotel trade, owners who genuinely care about your stay. As previous reviewers have stated the rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean, the breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Johns recommendations for restaurants were impeccable and helped make our stay perfect. I have absolutely... More
