The home is conveniently located - 10 minute drive to Monticello and close to good restaurants and a park. The owners are friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. The yellow room is my favorite. The breakfast options are healthy. Having to share one bathroom was the only difficult part of our stay.

Thank you for your kind words. We work to provide the kind of place we like to stay ourselves - friendly, relaxed, welcoming. Our cat, Shirley, is not allowed up in the guesthouse; she lives downstairs with us. For all but the most sensitive cat allergies, it's usually no problem. I'm glad that was your experience as well.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay. The owners are perfect hosts - made us instantly feel at home. Enjoyed chatting with them. The kitchen set up is convenient. It is clear that the host has put a lot of time and thought into developing this business. Their attention to detail is exceptional.

We had such a great stay! The rooms were comfortable, and Flame and Raven were warm and welcoming. We also really appreciated their eco-friendly way of running the guesthouse. Perfect location too -- within a 15-minute walk to the scenic downtown and a 5-10 minute drive from Monticello. Definitely check out the nearby Beer Run restaurant too if you stay... More

Thank you for such a lovely review. We're very glad you had such a good stay. You pretty much touched on everything that's important to us - creating a welcoming space, commitment to being environmentally friendly, and of course, the good fortune of being so centrally located. And of course, Beer Run. Our favorite restaurant. We certainly hope you'll stay... More

This was our second stay. Strongly recommended. Convenient, peaceful location. Clean. Comfortable beds. Bathroom/toilet facilities are clean, pleasure to use (good shower!) and well-stocked. Beautiful, inspiring artwork. Great facilities to cook your own meals if you wish--plenty of utensils and many basic ingredients on hand. Responsive to special requests (for example, supplying a muffin tin for a guest who wanted... More

Raven was a wonderful host; and his house was clean, comfortable, and in a lovely location. The downside is that there is only one shared bathroom so you may have to wait a bit. That being said, I would most certainly stay there again.

Raven and Flame were extremely nice people and their home-turned-guesthouse was clean, however, the noise from dogs barking next door and overall age of property has us rating this below what it could be.

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your marks for cleanliness and service. We're very sorry to hear about the dogs disturbing you. We always encourage guests to let us know if there's anything in the way of their needs. We maintain good relationships with our neighbors, and if something like that is happening, have no problem letting them know... More

This bed and breakfast is good value for money, it was clean and the owners where very welcoming. Rooms were small but adequate but if you don't like sharing a bathroom its not the place for you. Everything for breakfast was organic or locally produced where possible and its help yourself continental. You could have tea and coffee at anytime... More

We loved that they offered organic eggs, bananas, apples, oranges, cream, half and half, and fair trade coffee and raw honey. The owners are downstairs, the kitchen, dining room and living room upstairs is for the guests. As is the bathroom (no fan, one small window by the shower gets to slowly remove the steam, so don't expect to see... More
