We felt more like guests at a friends house than patrons. Elizabeth and Bob are delightful people and excellent innkeepers. The facilities are elegantly antiquated yet have fully modern conveniences. Sitting on the porch sipping wine and beer was sooooo relaxing. Breakfast was a treat. The cookies were good too. Bob and Janet

The hosts were so nice to talk to, and breakfast was special, so much so that we tried some of the specialty breakfast ideas at home. If you... More
