This is a super B&B and ideal for seeing ‘Amish Country’. The B&B is on a working farm, and so is surrounded by cornfields and cattle. The house itself was beautiful, and the room we had was excellent - wonderfully decorated, great views and really comfortable. Our welcome from Keith and Kathy couldn’t have been bettered, they were so friendly and helpful and really made us feel at home. Although they will serve you breakfast in your room if requested, I would recommend joining the other guests for breakfast each day. Breakfast is served at 0830 (0800 on Sundays), and all the guests sit around a big family table. This may seem inconvenient to some, but there is the option of breakfast in your room. Having said that, I would recommend coming downstairs for breakfast, as it’s a great way to start the day! The dishes are passed around just like a family would, and conversation starts flowing straight away. The innkeepers have some great stories – I would recommend any visitors from England ask Kathy about the Falmouth Goat Races! Guest can also compare tips for what to see and where to eat. Keith and Kathy were really thoughtful and great hosts - they had sodas, chocolate and coffee available when we arrived, and an ‘oops’ drawer full of all the things people forget to take on holiday - scissors, tape, plasters, etc. I would also recommend taking advantage of their offer to have an evening meal with some of the Amish farmer neighbours. We enjoyed that evening so much chatting about their way of life and eating some delicious food. If you are in the area then stay here!
