My wife and I and our 3 children stayed in 2 rooms in the coach house. The upstairs room was a bit warm at first but it cooled down to a comfortable temperature by nightfall. The downstairs room was better temperature controlled. Both rooms smelled quite musty. The beds were comfortable and the living room and kitchen were a functional... More

Serendipity is an old Victorian era house now operated as a B&B. We were in a spacious suite in the coach house, complete with its own kitchen. The entire place is crammed with antiques which might be a bit overdone for some folks, and might lend an "old" smell. (If you have a house full of antiques you'll know what... More

Very nice place! The owner was very pleasant, the breakfasts were fantastic, and the suite was spacious and clean. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. My sister, my son and I had a wonderful time.

My wife and I make it a habit to try new B&D's as often as possible. For us, getting to know the hosts is often the highlight of the trip. Our stay at Serendipity, however was a rude awakening. When we checked in, we were asked to pay in advance. The host would only let us barely in the front... More

I called the business to find out the availability for a night. I asked whether or not they had a hottub, the lady (who claimed she owns the bed and breakfast) replied by saying I should call around to another place.. there was no room for people like me there? what is that suppose to mean... and hung up on...

If you want to stay really close to the historical sites and experience true history, the Serendipity B&B will offer you that. We thourouly enjoyed our stay and would return to visit again. Be sure to ask for the tour of the house from Susan and Doug and ride in the 1927 Buick. Great place to stay.

We hated this place but stayed for 3 nights because we had pre paid. The pre payment policy should have been a clue to avoid staying here. We did talk with another couple at breakfast who decided they would move on to a hotel and forfeit their pre payment. In hindsight, we should have cut our losses and just left... More

I was at first sight intrigued by this place but intrigue quickly turned to dismay when we were handed the keys to our room and opened the door. The mustiness in our room, was so strong that we were almost sickened by the odor. We had pre-paid for the rooms and were told that there would be no refund, only... More

We stayed in one of the Carriage house suites in July 2009. We stood on the front porch for about 10 minutes ringing the bell and eventually had to call to get the innkeeper to come to the front door. This occurred despite the fact that we arrived at the time directed by the innkeeper in the literature we were... More

My husband and our daughter stayed in the "Spirit of Independence Suite” suite for 6 nights. I thought the place was very charming and reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of a phone, and my husband missed watching his cable T.V. However, they did have wireless Internet that worked well.... More
