“A Wonderful Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night recently and it was truly gorgeous. John and Jitka were extremely welcoming and their attention to detail shows throughout the house. The property is well manicured and very quiet. We stayed in the Royal Oak room and it was perfect, down to the chocolates on the pillows! They even offer room service in the morning to bring you coffee! Our room had a gorgeous view of the pond and its own private balcony overlooking the garden behind the house. In the morning we were served a delicious three course breakfast that was both healthy and hearty. We highly recommend it!

My husband and I booked a weekend at The Dove Nest Bed and Breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The wineries we explored (many of which are very close to the B&B) were wonderful as was Jitka's cooking. The breakfasts were delicious and so was the presentation. It was a great first anniversary!

We had a wonderful time at this lovely home. The owners, John and Jitka, made us feel so comfortable from the minute we arrived. Their attention to detail and cleanliness is apparent throughout the home and beautiful gardens. The breakfast is like no other we have had, and would put the Ritz Carlton to shame!! We were so relaxed and our only regret is that we could not stay longer, and are planning to return again.

In our 10 years of marriage we have visited many B&B's and this one by far was over-the-top. You won't be sorry. Wonderful hospitality and a beautiful home for guests to visit. Great food, great presentation, and nutritious food.

The Dove Nest Bed and Breakfast is simply......beautiful. My husband arranged an anniversary get-away and he did a wonderful job! John and Jitka are fabulous...warm, friendly, fun...we enjoyed getting to know them and enjoyed our 3 day stay there tremendously. The food was absolutely delicious..beautiful presentation, calming relaxing music, quiet atmosphere.. I absolutely LOVED all the separate seating areas all around the property..adirondack chairs down by the pond, the gorgeous wrap around porch with wicker seating, hammocks, outdoor dining..evening fire pit, just lovely. I have never seen such a beautifully landscaped piece of property in all my life...I would not be surprised at all if their establishment showed up on the cover of Better Homes & Gardens...it is that spectacular. Ten thumbs way up for the Dove Nest B&B..we will definitely be back! Thank you, John and Jitka Nelson!

My husband & I went to Dove Nest B & B to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. Jitka and John were warm and hospitable, making us feel right at home. We stayed in the Oak Room and it was big and comfortable. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck overlooking the yard, watching the birds eat their breakfast. I have never slept on a more comfortable bed. The 3 course breakfasts were truly gourmet. Lots of things to do around this B & B, we went to the dunes, Silver Lake and several wineries. We will be coming back!

Room Tip: We loved the Oak Room because it is Very large, window overlooking a pond, a deck overlooking beauti...
