A nicely decorated B&B but smell of mold and mildew throughout expecially in our room. Thick dust and cobwebs everywhere. Room was not cleaned in sometime. Bathroom was dark with litle light but mold in shower and toilet seat was broken.

Very nice stay at this B and B. Didn't see much of the owner as he was called away for a funeral. Breakfast was good. A full house so lots of interesting conversation.The Garden Room was a little dark and no outlets, but sufficient. Needs a little TLC, but nice. Within walking distance of downtown with a selection of shops.

We stayed in the Colonel's room for 2 nights, and I was very disappointed in the basics that were overlooked. Yes, the house is beautiful and well decorated, but first and foremost a room must be clean. Ours was not. On arriving I was disappointed that the beautiful exterior I saw in pictures looked neglected. The walk was unswept and... More

Lovely historical home , meticulously restored. This 200 year old home is beautifully decorated with antiques. Tom the proprietor serves a delectable breakfast. The town has a great bicycle path, that was once a train bed. One can ride for miles. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

I grew up about four blocks from the Russell-Cooper House and had never set foot in it until this visit. I was in town to visit my father and didn't want to impose too much on him, so I opted to stay somewhere in town. The Russell-Cooper house is a very warm and welcoming place, and it is situated in...

I am not a b&b guy (I don't care for much conversation before noon) but my wife loves them. That being said, I enjoyed our stay at the Russell Cooper House. It was quaint and clean. Tom, the proprietor, made us welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms are spacious and quiet - we had a full house but... More

Was in Mount Vernon for a class reunion and was immensely impressed with the RCH. Wonderful rest in beautiful room. Incredible breakfast. Will definitely stay there again next year.

There is a warm, cozy feeling as you enter the Russell-Cooper House which is nearly 190 years old. The rooms are large and comfortable each with their own private bath. There are many interesting antiques and the fire blazing in the living room makes it very homey. I have stayed at different times of the year but Christmastime is especially... More

I have stayed at the Russell-Cooper House many times, and my granddaughter and I and my family and friends have stayed there as well. We love it! Tom, the host, is very accommodating--he is extremely knowledgeable about the area (and his breakfasts are yummy). And the house itself is fascinating. The location is convenient for walking to historic downtown Mt.Vernon... More

My family and I have stayed multiple times and have never been disappointed ... convenient location and clean, large rooms. Tom, the owner, is a great guy and a wonderful host. He'll go the "extra mile" to ensure your stay is enjoyable - even if he can't accomodate you at his property! Last time I was in town all the... More
