I found this " home away from home" on the website. I was looking for a clean, comfortable and secure bed and breakfast. The Owners, Manager and Staff are all truly wonderful, sincere and incredibly accommodating. I highly recommend staying at this establishment and will definitely be back. Well done to you all.

Well - kept property with friendly staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Modern bathroom. Delicious breakfast. I would definitely recommend for a short stop - over. Parking is a bit of a challenge but the hosts are more than ready to go out of their way to arrange space or ease of movement in and out of parking area.

The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. We felt it was like a home from home. The rooms were lovely, clean and beautifully appointed. The location is quiet and centrally situated for our purposes. The owners are gracious and go out of their way to make one feel at home.
