I didn't know what to expect, so I came in with no expectations. I can't speak high enough of the two ladies who run this establishment. Their attention to detail, amazing cooking skills, and level of service is above and beyond. The house is beautiful, and a history buff's dream. The ladies are very knowledgeable about their property, and even...

We were in a room with a small kitchen and a very small bathroom. The room had been re-purposed from a farming use, so the details are very rustic - for example the ceiling slopes below head height in the bathroom.

We booked the cottage and weren't surprised to find it was old. But, know that it is, and airing the room is easy. We liked being at the back of the house--very quiet. Loved the stories of the house and the feelings staying in an 18th century building evoked. Our hosts provided an excellent experience, with any amenity we wanted,...

It was a pleasure having you ladies stay with us. The Cottage does date back to a chicken coop in the 1700's, refurbished over the centuries to a cozy guest room...so yes, nearly as old as the main house!! We love sharing the history of this old house and glad you enjoyed it too.

What a wonderful and unique experience my daughter and I had staying over at the Daniel Rust House. Germaine and Kathy are so welcoming and we even got a little history lesson once we arrived when Kathy gave us a tour of the house. Germaine as well during breakfast was full of interesting facts about the history of the house....
