This early 19th century B&B is our favorite place to stay when we are visiting the area. Innkeepers Germaine and Cathy are warm, gracious and wonderfully accommodating. The bedrooms and common areas are comfortable and beautifully appointed in keeping with its colonial charm. The breakfasts are fabulous – as delicious as they are ample. Daniel Rust House also has an... More

In my recent family history research visit to New England I had the pleasure of being the only guest at the Daniel Rust House (off season/mid-week). Germaine was delightful, friendly and knowledgeable of the history of the house. The house definitely has it's own "personality". There is an obvious pride of ownership and maintenance of the property. I arrived to... More

The Daniel Rust House was the highlight of our East coast college tour. This is an original home from 1731 which retains the charm and character of the original which served as tavern, inn and likely housed slaves on the underground railroad. The owners are wonderful hosts and filled us in on all of the interesting facts about the house... More

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Daniel Rust House. Cathy and Germaine were both so warm and welcoming when we arrived and showed us to our room, the Mary Rose Room. The room was beautifully decorated, and the best part was the fireplace that kept us cozy warm on a snowy, winter night. Cathy also showed... More

We absolutely loved this quaint bed and breakfast. This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last. The house has a real sense of authenticity and warmth. The bedroom was very comfortable and we enjoyed the goody bags in our room. The sitting areas were also very comfortable and we loved sitting around the fireplace. The Halloween... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this B&B to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Our first impression was the beautiful well maintained grounds (Cathy & Germaine I don't know how you keep up with all those leaves!). The B&B is situated on a busy road but you don't feel it at all when you pull into the gravel... More

We recently returned to Ohio from a much anticipated New England vacation. One of the highlights and a pleasant experience was our two night stay at the Daniel Rust House. While researching family history, I found that Daniel and Anna Rust were my 6th Gr-Grandparents. Germaine was friendly and welcoming. She shared some of the history of the house with... More

Although only a one night stay, we really enjoyed our Daniel Rust House experience. Cathy and Germaine were friendly and welcoming. The house had a real sense of history without being fusty and there was a great attention to detail plus modern comfort. We especially appreciated the goodie basket in our room. After 5 weeks travelling in Canada and US... More

This is my third time staying at the Daniel Rust House B&B. I've stayed in all of the large bedrooms, and during this past visit, in the Maybell Cottage. I absolutely love the cottage! I'm really surprised that the previous review on this page, regarding the cottage, has such a negative input because I could not disagree anymore. While all... More
