The lodging was perfect for our needs. The afternoon tea and goodies were delectable, especially while rocking on the front porch. My only complaint, albeit minor, was my... More

We enjoyed our stay at the 1837 B & B very much. We stayed in room 3-2, a lovely room with two beds and plenty of space for three people. Beds were very comfortable. The B & B is located in a nice residential neighborhood which was very quiet at night. We didn't hear any noise from adjoining rooms even... More

I did not like to walk up two flights of stairs. That was the only negative of the whole stay. Everything else was great. I am not a writer so to write 200 words is to much for this old mind. I just know that I enjoyed my visit and would stay there again.

Matt was a wonderful host. Excellent breakfast. Only wish I could have gotten the recipe for the pineapple French toast and the sausage balls. If you want the best then 1837 B&B is what you're llooking for. Looking forward to next stay.
