We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before but we had a wedding nearby and waited too long to make reservations at the venue hotel, so we checked out other places online and came across this and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we did. Brian and his wife Lynn will make you feel like part of the family. Our room had its own private bath (which I believe all the rooms do) and both the bedroom and bathroom were immaculate beyond belief. The bathroom was shiny clean! It had been all completely renovated and looked brand new. The bed was so comfortable, very soft sheets, I had a great night's sleep. We had a clear, flatscreen TV in our room with cable and wifi. The breakfast in the morning, all hand prepared, was the best!! There was a wedding breakfast at the venue hotel, but my ride was late picking me up, so Brian made me this baked apple dessert with a sweet sauce that was to die for, and then he brought me out an egg/cheese dish he made with maple bacon which was the best tasting breakfast I ever had. Not to mention the home made banana bread and muffins that were there, too. When my ride back to the hotel arrived, Brian was kind enough to offer him coffee! When I got to the wedding breakfast, it paled in compared to Brian's breakfast back at the Ballard House Inn! Newton, the golden retriever is another treasure. He is mostly kept in the caretaker's quarters, probably just in case people have allergies to dogs, but I asked Brian to bring him out so I could see him and this dog is a love! I wanted to take him home. The entire house is immaculate and you couldn't ask for better, more hospitable innkeepers than Brian and Lynn.
