This was our second time this year to visit the Red Rocker. Our first visit was Valentine's Day and this trip we celebrated our 21st Anniversary. We had great experiences both visits. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. Of course, no review about the Red Rocker would be complete without mentioning THE FOOD! We ate dinner in the dining... More

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Red Rocker Inn, while visiting relatives in the area. It is close enough to town to walk there, and the inn itself is homey and cozy. The owners are gracious and friendly. It just feels like you're a guest in someone's home. The breakfast is absolutely first rate! My favorite was the... More

Our second day was my wife's birthday (12/24) so she got breakfast in bed, natch. But we chose this location for the FOOD! The evening meal is exquisite, and the dining room is always busy because the entrees are special. We were introduced to The Red Rocker Inn by close friends who have never stayed there! Even the locals pile... More

Doug and Jenny and Bonnie are wonderful and gracious hosts. Coffee, hot tea, and superb macaroons in the evening capped each day of our visit. We enjoyed conversation with really nice folks there as well.

Everything about the Red Rocker Inn smacks of hospitality. It is clear that Jenny and Doug have a passion for providing an excellent, memorable experience for their guests. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The room, which had every bit of character you would expect at the finest bed and breakfasts, was both well appointed and sparkling clean. Given the quality of...

Our second visit. This time we stayed in Elizabeth's Attic, our first choice. We expected a little challenge with my wife's knees, and we met it. The room is on the "3rd floor" but that's only 2 steps higher than the 2d floor. There are only about 5 to a landing, then a right turn to another 5 stairs, then... More

This was our second annual visit to the Inn for Thanksgiving. They have three sittings and we chose the earliest 1:00 so our food would settle since the meal has several courses and so delicious. Breakfast is also delicious and there is something to please everyone with a lot of variety. Our room was on the second floor and a... More

This was our first visit to Red Rocker Inn and we stayed three nights. This bed and breakfast Inn is exceptional with gourmet food and wonderful rooms and surroundings. We felt welcomed immediately and Doug and Jenny were especially helpful in regard to anything we needed or wanted. This was a really memorable visit worth a detour. We can not... More

Hello! Thanks for the nice review! You are not the only one who loves our Caramel-Pecan French Toast. In fact we've sold more cookbooks for just that recipe than anything else. It happens that you were here on a very busy night! It is unusual for us to host a party of 70. I'm curious about your rating for our... More

Stayed 2 nights while passing though. Nice rooms(bed a bit soft for a bad back), with 2 awesome breakfasts. Ate one evening meal and it was exceptional with about 8-10 homemade dessert choices, WOW! A bit expensive, but my wife says I don't get out enough to know these things! Doug and his wife are great cooks and hosts. Love... More
