My partner and I both thought this was one of the nicest b&bs we had ever been to. We were there for 3 nights to attend a wedding in the area. We stayed in a first-floor room, because I was on crutches. The room was comfortable and attractive, and the common spaces -- hot tub, living room, dining room, library/game room were homelike in the best way, and comfortable and welcoming as well (with many subtle bee-themed touches!). Everyone else has already commented on the phenomenal breakfasts Sheila cooks (and I noticed she accommodates various dietary restrictions.)
Sheila makes everyone feel special, and seems interested in everyone in a completely genuine way. I enjoyed going to the backyard to feed the chickens with her and learning about her bees, and also sitting out there, overlooking the fields and path below. When she learned we were interested in the extraordinary stone wall sculptures that Thea Alvin makes in Morrisville, she took us to see them!
It was a real pleasure to stay here.
