The best part was walking out of our room in the morning and smelling the wonderful breakfasts that Linda made every morning. Next best was having her appear with the coffeepot as soon as I got down the stairs. My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts over the years and the Ivy House is definitely one...

We have stayed at the Ivy House for the last three years now. Jim and Linda are very gracious and attentive to our needs. Their inn is very charming and relaxing. It feels very much like being at home and the beds are extremely comfortable. We can't say enough good things about the breakfasts that Linda prepares. They are absolutely... More

I cannot say enough great things about this B&B. I will start off by stating how absolutely amazing the inn keeper is, she is warm, welcoming and friendly. She was so amazing!! When we left, I felt like I knew her! We stayed in the English Pine room which was quite lovely. Very roomy, super clean. My husband and I... More

The Ivy house is a wonderfully up to date Inn with classy furnishings, just the right amount of wall paper to not be overwhelming and dated. Linda is so wonderful and welcoming! My husband booked the Ivy House for my birthday and Linda had fresh cookies waiting for us, a birthday greeting on the chalkboard to our room. She showed... More

A really great experience for our first bed and breakfast. Linda was the best! So friendly and helpful. It felt like home. The English Ivy room was perfect with a huge private bathroom. The fresh baked brownies were addictive and breakfast was delicious. We may never stay in another hotel. Can[t wait to visit The Ivy House again!

We chose Ivy House for our annual girls weekend getaway to scrapbook. Linda could not have been more hospitable. The rooms are cozy and the beds very comfortable. We all had our own bathroom and the food was delicious! Linda even accommodated all of our many scrapbooking supplies and made space for us in the well-appointed living room. We cannot... More

We loved visiting the Ivy House. Enjoyed our visit with the Inn Keepers. We have a lot in common. Cozy, friendly, historical home, and clean. The fresh fruit in a waffle cone was good and pretty. Souffle and muffin were delicious. Certainly will visit again.

My wife and I wanted to get away for the night and we both immediately thought of the Ivy House. This made our fifth visit to this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. As always, our host, Linda, warmly greeted us and our stay was perfect. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, zucchini and a homemade... More
