My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay for two nights in the Dunaven room. The room was beautiful, comfortable, quiet, and the sheets were silky soft. We also really enjoyed the jetted tub in the adjoining bath. Larry is a gracious host and he prepared a delicious breakfast for us each morning. It was very convenient that he... More

My husband and I were attending a family event in the area and stayed at this B&B for two nights. We couldn't have asked for more. This is a gorgeous historic home with a winding tree lined drive. Each room is beautifully decorated. Our room featured a four poster bed with a very comfy mattress and soft sheets. We slept... More

My wife and I have stayed at many B&Bs and this one is among the best. It is a beautiful and well-appointed home providing comfortable accommodations. The quality and quantity of the breakfast items is outstanding, and Larry, the innkeeper, is an engaging and gracious host that will ensure a pleasant stay.

This is my fourth time staying with Larry. The property is beautiful, meticulously maintained and the rooms incredibly comfortable. Fantastic breakfast. But the highlight is Larry! Interesting, fun to talk to and a truly outstanding innkeeper! You won't be disappointed!

My husband & I were guests of the inn 4/16/2015. Without exception, every aspect of our stay was perfect! The home is gorgeous, filled with beautiful antiques & objets d'art. Larry has overlooked not a single detail to insure the ultimate comfort of each guest. His warm hospitality was delightful as well. The breakfast was delicious, & the presentation was... More

Wow! My mom and I were blown away by this B&B. We were driving from the East Coast to Colorado and decided to stay here for one night. What a great decision that was! First of all, the host (Larry) was so accommodating with our short notice. I have a gluten allergy and even with just one day's notice, he... More

I stayed here with my family (college-aged daughters and parents) and had a great experience! The four of us were the only ones staying the night so Larry said we could use the main areas of the house as well to relax in. The house is beautiful with lots of antiques and art in the sitting and reading rooms. Also... More

Gracious hospitality, fresh spring flowers, a bountiful breakfast, and amazing furnishings, including the "signature" Althorp Secretaire - all make this B&B one of our favorites. Our room, the Dunaven, offered an en suite bath with an oversized walk in shower and a Jacuzzi air tub for two.The Asian inspired accents were classical and offered a subtle ambiance to the traditional...

Sidwell Friends B & B was just what I was looking for after a long day of travel and before the start of a hiking triad a great night of sleep in a comfy bed in a quiet location. The decor was tasteful and welcoming, the residential neighborhood charming, and the breakfast delicious and beyond adequate: fresh fruit, yogurt, ham,... More
