I stayed during the second week of the Bedford Fall Foliage Festival. I arrived much later than I anticipated but still received a warm welcome. I made a quick trip to the pizza place in the next block for some take out. I was able to heat up my soup in the microwave in the second floor snack area and sit at the small table to eat. There was a fridge stocked with soda and baskets with coffee, tea, cocoa and snacks. The bathroom was small but well stocked with toiletries. A fan unit also provided heat. The bed and pillow were firmer than what I have at home but I slept very well. A small electric fireplace took the chill off and made the room feel cozy. The bedroom and the public rooms were very clean. The only downside is that the house is on a fairly busy street and it can be noisy. I was very tired every day so I slept well. Breakfast was delicious every morning. Everyday there was something different including quiche, homemade apple crisp, homemade applesauce, pancakes, bacon, eggs, fruit, yogurt and granola. But best of all, are the owners, Paul and Belva who made me feel like I was visiting family.
