Stayed with my Mom after a very long day of traveling. Deb is a great host! The room was warm, clean and comfortable. I spent a great time talking to Deg. She is a lovely person with so much wisdom! We both slept very well. The home was beautiful too.

Have never felt so at home away from home. Dexter House is governed by a lovely hostess who welcomed us like long lost kin and catered to our every need. Our children were treated like one of her own. Comfortable and clean rooms, beautifully decorated, with all the necessary amenities. Relaxing come and go atmosphere. Will return again and again.

I was on temporary assignment working on base, at the power plant. Bob and Deb have become family. They are so wonderful, warm, and welcoming. Deb makes the most amazing meals. I highly recommend the 1855 House. I felt like family, met many of their wonderful friends, and was always warmly greeted after work. The food is great, bed and... More
