A remodeled bathroom was attached to each bedroom. The sitting room for the guests was comfortable and spacious. The dining room was beautiful... More

An excellent place to stay. You are made feel welcome from the time you enter the front door. They can't do enough for you - just ask if you have a concern. Very comfortable accommodations - spotlessly clean, quiet, excellent, sufficient breakfast to your individual taste - great coffee and wonderful conversation. Alex and Ann make you feel special and... More

We had tea and cakes before we even had our bags taken upstairs (thanks for that). Over tea, menus were produced for local restaurants and a reservation for dinner was made for us close... More
