My friend and I arrived as part of a ladies weekend getaway. It feels as if you are way out in the country- quiet and peaceful, but actually are only a few minutes away from town. We were greeted by the hosts, walked around and shown various interesting tidbits, plus the location of all the choices of Blue Bell ice cream! We stayed in the School house which was so fun- nostalgic w/ the chalkboard still on the wall! The breakfast was so delicious and many yummy items to choose from! We couldn't have asked for a better time at this b&b. Also, enjoyed rocking on the porch in the mornings! I would definitely choose this b&b again!
