We ate here for our anniversary. I cannot say enough about the food and service. It was by far, the best meal I have had in a long time. It was the perfect place to celebrate. Hats off to the chef!!!

Dinner was outstanding. Breakfast chef even made gluten free blueberry muffins and gluten free waffles. Even made me a handmade peach sauce without the flour.

If you want a special place to go with superb food, impeccable service, and unmatched scenery, this is your place. We have been there many times, and we have yet to have a bad meal, or even a part of a bad meal. In fact, since it is expensive for us, we only go on special occasions. We do not... More

When I suggest a B&B to my husband, he asks, "Is it like that one by the river with the big tree?" If it is, he wants to go. If it's not, I have some convincing to do. Comfort and relaxation are the two words that come to mind when I think of this place. We really enjoyed just being... More

Delicious Saturday night dinner. Breakfasts were just right with fresh fruit cup, home baked muffins with egg burrito on Saturday and peach waffles on Sunday.
