The Gillum House has to be one of the most relaxed and relaxing B&Bs my sister and I have stayed at. Hosts Kathleen and John have forgotten nothing to make their guests comfortable - good beds, a great upstairs bath, lots of books to read (and take) and entertaining conversation. There's plenty of Kathleen's home-cooked food and a huge range of exotic coffees and teas for guests to sample. A bonus for us was that the West Fork River bike trail, which we planned to ride, is just 50 yards from the B&B. In short, the Gillum House was the perfect place for us to stay and I recommend it without hesitation. Thank you Kathleen and John.
