From the minute you arrive, you know you are in a special place, one created with a love and appreciation of a foregone time. This farmhouse has been lovingly restored (ask Barry to talk about it!) and decorated with Peggy's unique vision. We found ourselves gazing and peeking around corners, into nooks and crannies, on bookshelves, enjoying the play of... More

If you are visiting the Lake George/Gore Mountain area...you must stay here. If you want to experience a B & B for the first time...Beware...this place will set the bar very high. From the food, to the home, the owners, to the price....it truly is the best! We have not been to a better B& B. The other guests were... More

This was everything you would expect in a B&B experience. The owners are absolutely wonderful, they are cheerful and inviting and make you feel very much at home. The house and rooms are beautiful and basic things like the water pressure and amount of hot water were great too. Very close to Gore Mountain if you like skiing. Breakfasts were... More

This B & B is a warm and pretty place with reasonable rates, 15 minutes from Gore. It is immaculately clean, the antique bed with fluffy comforters was incredibly comfortable, and the hosts make a wonderful breakfast.

This is the best bed and breakfast. There are so many nice details - a beautiful location, amazing breakfast, comfortable beds, cozy rooms, modern bathrooms. The current owners renovated the house and created a perfect mixture between modern amenities while preserving the 19th century flair of the house.

We stayed with Peg and Barry in mid Dec while we had some real estate business in the area. The B&B is large and warm and inviting. The keepers have beautifully restored the large farm house and made it an extremely cozy place to stay. The living room is very well appointed and we were invited to enjoy some freshly... More

The hosts at this B&B are very friendly and helpful. They were willing to spend as long as we needed to tell us about the options for food and entertainment in the area and were very knowledgable. It is immaculately clean. Probably the cleanest we have ever stayed at. They provided snacks in the evening and a great breakfast in... More

Stayed here for a night for a wedding. Took a cab from the B&B to the ceremony and told the cab company we would need a ride back later in the evening. Around 11 we called the cab company and they told us it would be a 2 hour wait. The owner, Barry, came and personally picked us up from... More

Had a great overnite at this B&B. Owners were so friendly I made an immediate connection with them. Breakfast was out of this world and they made special accommodations for my husbands restrictions and he still had lots to eat. But best of all was how clean the home was. Not a bit of dust or dirt anywhere. No musty... More
