This suite has everything that you need along with a few goodies (wine, cheese, deserts). Breakfast was an occasion! It started with coffee or tea, then fruit from the garden and finally the main course. ( I had to wait for my wife to take a picture of the meal before I could eat it). My wife enjoyed the garden...

The gardens were incredible, the landscaping is beautifully done! The room was luxurious and comfortable, the bed was like a cloud, and the room had a perfect scenic view of the gardens. The bathroom was absolutely stunning, with a walk- in shower and huge soaker tub! The food was some of the best I've ever had, every detail was meticulously... More

It's starts with the hosts; Sandy and Heather who define what it is to welcome guests and make sure that are taken care of. From there, it's the beautiful setting. A peaceful private road leads you through incredible gardens. Ancient trees welcome you at the gate. You don't need a trip to the Botanical Gardens - it's all there at... More

Wits end was the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The hosts, Heather and Sandy, were full of cheer and told us of things to see and where to eat. The room was very spacious like a mini apartment and even had a fireplace. The bed was comfortable and overlooked a large garden which was beautifully maintained. The breakfasts... More

Spacious room with excellent bed & perfect bathroom. Top notch breakfast by professional caterers. Excellent hospitality -- wine and cheese laid out for us on our arrival; we felt completely welcomed. But the most unique aspect was the setting: sweeping green lawn, bursts of beautiful flowers, towering trees, and hummingbirds right outside our window. One drawback: if you don't come... More

We booked Wit's End for 3 days and wished we would've stayed longer. Heather and Sandy are incredibly good hosts, take care of all your wishes and you can just get there and slow down from all that stress you carry with you.

Wits End Retreat was everything we had hoped for and more. The setting is serene and the gardens are stunning. The suite is large and inviting, with windows on three sides looking out at the beautiful surroundings, which you can also enjoy from your private deck. It is decorated to a very high standard.

Wits End has everything we were looking for in a weekend away - welcoming hosts, beautiful gardens/scenery, and delicious breakfasts. Heather and Sandy have gone above and beyond to make every aspect of this place as welcoming and comfortable as possible. We just finished our second stay there and hope to keep going back for many years to come!
