We used to go to the Red Rocker B & B when our girls were Little and we took them to Camp Greystone. It must be 25 years ago when we first came when there was a big tire swing in the front yard and the dining porch was not enclosed. I remember they prayed before the evening meal. Now... More

Our delightful stay at the RED ROCKER INN was matched only by the fantastic food that we partook of for dinner and then at the breakfast buffet. We made our dinner reservations (you would want to do this as well) at the same time as our room accommodations. There are many fine choices from the dinner menu. The evening we... More

Fabulous setting for a great dinner at moderate prices. Wife and I had rainbow trout - never better. My former college roommate and his wife also very pleased. Good waiter, much fun, great place to slow down and get caught up on life. Try it, you will be so glad you did. Dessert is to die for! Come early and... More

Everything about this experience was delightful. This has to be one of the few inns of this caliber left. The food was excellent and the wait staff expertly trained. Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy this great place. Reservations are suggested so you won't be disappointed.

We had stayed the night at the Inn so breakfast was included with the stay. They have the best breakfast ever. An egg dish, a breakfast bread dish, bacon, sausage, gravy, biscuits, fresh fruit plus your beverage. If you don't like the egg dish they will fix you an egg(s) any way that you like. This was our second stay... More

I had the lentil walnut cake for the entree--a delicious kind of veggie burger but better. And the biscuits and apple butter were amazing. Also great coffee!

We tried this restaurant for our anniversary. The food was tasty, well cooked with good flavours. The server brought complimentary biscuits with house made apple butter. They were good, but not the best I've ever eaten. For a starter, we had the smoked salmon on flatbread. I had hoped the salmon would be more smoky, because that's what I really... More

Hi! Thanks for all the great comments. I did want to mention one thing that you'll be happy about. Soon after your visit, we did some renovations in the restaurant. The old sloping porch floor (once built to shed rainwater) is now leveled and the old red carpet is gone!! We have replaced it with GORGEOUS carpet in a Persian... More

I took a large group to this Restaurant that had been recommended to me. Overall the experience was delightful EXCEPT do not order their steak. Very grisly! However reading other comments others had said the same about the steak! Maybe they should change butchers or delete it from their menu! That was the impression of all who had gotten this... More

Second time for us and it was fantastic. Great service and food. We came up for Valentine's day weekend and stayed in the B&B and had dinner in the restaurant. The staff was so knowledgeable and courteous they really made us fell at home. The food was first class and the price was very reasonable.

January 3rd 2014, My wife and I had a rehearsal dinner for my son and daughter in law. The owners Doug and Jenny were very friendly an acommodating. Their goal was to make our dinner perfect for our guests. They did. We had a nice menu of five entrees including a vegetarian option (pot roast and trout were our favorite).... More
