We've been staying at this bed and breakfast for 10 years. It's under new ownership, but the ambience has only gotten better. Lots of recreational opportunities and, weather permitting, sitting on the porch sipping wine is unbeatable. Philip and Marcie are just great people. Comfortable rooms (recommend the Rose room). We combine a stay here with dinner at The Rowe... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at The House on the Hill and had a truly wonderful experience! We were instantly greeted upon arrival and were shown around by Marci, such a kind lady! The house is really clean and has a super cozy feel to it. The beds are really comfortable! They really thought of everything.. toiletries,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the House on the Hill! It was a great, relaxing get away after a busy first part of October. The three-course breakfasts that Marci provided were outstanding! Even though the weather left a little to be desired, we were able to meander through some of the trails that are on their 50 plus acres... More

We've not done many B&B's, so we were a little apprehensive. But, oh, what a good decision. We met some very nice people. The breakfast that Phil and Marci put on is excellent. Our room and the common areas were very clean, restful and inviting. The weather was nasty when we were there and we didn't have much time to... More

My husband and I recently had an amazing stay with Marci and Phil at House on the Hill. The "main" things were great (accommodations and food) but what most impressed us were the "extras," from fuzzy bathrobes in the bathroom to "anytime" drinks and snacks (help-yourself homemade cookies appeared on table one afternoon - just because!) to help picking places...

What a beautiful home! We were overjoyed to find this B & B so homey. The room was very clean and well appointed. The outdoors is a sensory pleasure. The breakfast menu was a taste sensation! We will be coming back to this, House on the Hill, again and recommending this B&B to others. Thank You Marci !

House in the Hill is a beautiful facility with gorgeously appointed rooms with modern, up-to-date amenities. Set on a hill overlooking the lake the views are tremendous. A wide front porch looking down on the lake and several interior living rooms provide great places to relax. Marci is a great host and serves a delicious breakfast. Overall a great place... More

Breakfast was delicious and unique. The common areas and grounds were a nice place to spend time. We had a very relaxing time at the end of a camping trip. Marci and Phillip were great hosts. We would love to come back some time!

We feel in love with this B&B. The room we stayed in was super clean and comfortable. We hope to stay again in the future. The breakfast was excellently prepared. The owners were very nice and helpful.

This was a real treat to stay here. It gave the feeling the way a person would want their home to feel. Marci does a great job with breakfast and the property allows for someone to just "get away from it all". It was very peaceful and enjoyable to see a deer with her fawns walk down to the brook...
