They even asked initially if any of us had food allergies, and perfectly handled my need for gluten-free foods. The house is very comfortable, and there... More

The location was great! The B & B was fabulous! The atmosphere was very relaxing. and the food was great. The little personal touches made our stay special. They shared the stories of the B & B, and the hospitality was good. My Sister is from Germany, and never stayed at a B & B. She was very impressed.
