We decided about one week prior to our visit to come to the Mountains for a weekend visit. We found this B & B on Trip Advisor and after reading all the reviews, and comparing both the other facilities, and this location we choose this home. We are not disappointed. Right from arriving, they met us in the parking lot... More

My husband and I unexpectedly showed up at the 1902 Turnpike without a reservation and we couldn't have been treated more warmly. We were given a tour of the house and a fascinating history of the property. Our room was large and very comfortable with every amenity available (not to mention the fluffiest bath towels I've ever come across!) Breakfast... More

My Husband and I desperately needed a getaway and the 1902 Turnpike House B & B was the best place we could have gone! Cindy and Paul, Bella (the dog) and Turtle (the cat) all make you feel as welcome as if they were expecting family. Paul's culinary skills are amazing, as you will see, as you partake of the... More

Innkeepers Paul and Cindy are as gracious people as you will likely ever meet, and they truly make you feel like you are guests in their home. The house is cheerfully appointed, as was our room. The house is a mix of old and new. We stayed in the Beech Room, which is the largest and is located in an... More

Truly felt at home. From the moment you walk in till the moment to leave. The room we had "The Bettie Banner" was great, with a comfortable bed & great views all around. Paul being culinary wizard whipping up AWESOME breakfasts to Cindy sitting down and just making small talk at the table, truly a great place I want to... More

This adorable B&B is run by one of the nicest couples I have ever met. Paul and Cindy are wonderful hosts and do everything to make one's stay perfect. Rooms are comfortable, clean and has everything one would need, breakfasts are elegant and scrumptious and their 'guest pantry' makes you feel completely at home. We went to ski; both Beech... More

We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. Cozy, warm, friendly and perfect. Reasonably priced, treated like family, superb location, quiet, great breakfast...what more could you expect? The most pleasant aspect of our stay was PAUL & CINDY: two wonderful (married) folk who love what they do and are genuine. Our room was the Thomas Lowe room ~ Just just... More

My wife and I loved this place. Very clean and the bed in the Betty Banner room was superbly comfortable. Paul prepared quiche lorraine at our request (we had read it was delicious) and it (and the rest of the breakfast) was amazing. Paul gave us a tour of the house when we arrived and told us the history as... More

We went looking for a quiet place to relax and have a restful getaway. This was the perfect place! Cindy and Paul were friendly and extremely helpful. Everything we needed and more was provided (from extra toiletries to a guest pantry with drinks and snacks to the endless cookie jar!). There were plenty of places to sit and chat or... More

Turnpike is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and/or bustle of the city and just relax. Paul's breakfasts are fantastic. The beds are comfortable. The peace is quiet. What more could you ask for? Paul and Cindy treat us like family and we will come back here every chance we get! The location is just far enough... More
