We enjoyed every minute of our stay... More

We have been to many B&B's throughout the states, and this place is the best! What a wonderful place to rest and relax, and lots to do as well! We can't wait to go back! Our schedule consisted of waking to eat wonderful breakfasts, going on a bike ride on Heritage trail, coming back to rest in the peaceful surroundings... More

It was relaxing, peaceful, comfortable, and just what we were looking for in a... More
