the historic Beale Mansion is a perfect B&B experience. The owners' warmth and skill at running this place makes it very special. They love hosting people. And they did an amazing job of doing a difficult restoration. Beale has so many special touches I will not try to list them. Huge trees, large gardens , fountains and an interior that... More

This B&B is beautiful, romantic and quaint. The owners are very friendly and will give you a tour when you arrive. The mansion itself is a little museum, with one exception. All the old furniture that is part of the "exhibition" is in use. You can drink your cup of tea and read your book on the old sofas and... More

We stayed one night on the 3rd floor. We loved our time at this B&B. The owner was very knowledgeable about the house. We felt like we had total privacy with the luxury of being pampered. Don't hesitate to book this B&B.

It's totally like going back in time. You're met by the owner in tie and tails. The house is decorated in antiques and it's full of charm. You can have a quick breakfast or pay a little more and get catered to. The bed is a canopy and very romantic while the private bathroom has a jacuzzi. It really is... More

Beautifullly decorated B & B mansion...wonderful attention to detail in appearance and service to guests. The owners spent years restoring this home to its original beauty. Their whole focus is to give their guests a welcoming, memorable, comfortable stay.

Everything about our stay said luxury and hospitality! The unbelievable bed, the in-room Jacuzzi, 24 hour chocolate bar, and a breakfast served in courses all made for a very relaxing get away. The transformation that has occurred since the owners purchased the property is amazing.

Jim and Sandy run the best bed and breakfast I have ever been to. The breathtaking mansion itself is incredibly intriguing with its 100 year old rich history. The room I stayed in was beautifully decorated. It offers a large and unbelievably comfortable bed. The bathroom has a whirlpool and Jim and Sandy even provide special bath salts to help... More

What a wonderful experience! From the time you step into the door until your step back out you are immediately taken back to an era when things were simpilier. Jim and Sandy are outstanding hosts! The rooms are true to the era and the beds are so comfortable that you don't want to get up. Truely if you are looking... More
