“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Wooden Duck B&B. Upon arrival, Karl (the owner), seemed just as delighted to host us as we were to be there! He showed us around the beautiful inn and walked us to our room. Although we booked the smallest accomodation for our one night stay, it was charming and well suited us for the night. Breakfast was delicious: broccoli quiche, ham, pancakes, and chocolate zucchini bread. Mmm Mmm. The inn was inviting, clean, and I particularly enjoyed the game room (bumper pool, chess, a wall of shelves housing a ton of board games, and their VHS library which was pretty impressive)! We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the in ground pool but got to do some bird watching around it during breakfast. All in all, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Looking forward to visiting again real soon!

Lovely place in a beautiful setting. Everything provided, even towels for the pool. The room was comfortable, air con especially welcome in the 100 degree heat. The hosts were so welcoming and keen to help with maps, restaurant suggestions etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Wooden Duck to family and friends and would like to return one day.

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The B&B was charming, the surroundings were beautiful and peaceful. The breakfast was awesome and the innkeepers were so friendly and accomodating. They felt like good friends by the time we left. We would definitely go back and are already planning our return trip for next year.

We found this place on line two years ago and return this year. The owners have retired and left it in the hands of some great innkeepers. The rooms are very comfortable. The breakfasts are superb. We enjoyed using the pool. Although it was too hot this year, if you like to hike, there are plenty of trails right there. Otherwise, there is plenty to do within reasonable driving - wine tastings, antiquing, etc. Highly recommend.

, Owner at Wooden Duck B&B, responded to this review, July 3, 2012
Thank you for this review. We are delighted to hear how well Jim and Trina are treating our guests. The comfort and cleanliness of the inn are also attributable to the great work of our housekeepers, Carol and Alethia.

As the owners, we are still very much involved with the operations at the Wooden Duck. Jim and Trina handle the guests' needs 5 days per week; we handle the other two days, along with the financial, personnel, public relations and marketing aspects of the business. We hope all of you who read this will come and meet the team who make the Wooden Duck such a great place to stay.

My husband and I really enjoyed our overnight stay at the Wooden Duck. The inn itself is situated just off a country road. It's beautiful and very well kept. Our room was quite comfortable. We got to enjoy a refreshing swim in the pool since the day we arrived was so warm. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious. On our particular stay we got to meet both the owners and the innkeepers and everyone was very gracious and helpful. We'll definitely go back!
