Breakfast at The Lamplighter is truly out of the ordinary, from the baked oatmeal to delicious French toast-and an excellent juice blend- and fruit soup-and the wonderful little muffins. Our fireplace room was immaculate and stocked with amenities in case guests forget anything. The house is nicely restored and maintained, but the decor is not over the top. Jane is... More

The Lamplighter is the quintessential charming B&B. The house and property are beautiful and immaculately maintained. The proprietors, Bill and Jane, were gracious, funny, personable, engaging, and warm. We loved chatting with them. They were also extraordinarily accommodating to my boyfriend's extensive list of food allergies; Jane made an entire wheat-, egg-, dairy-free cake just for him, so that he... More

Terrific one night stay in the Rose Room. Bill and Jane are ideal hosts, welcoming and talkative but they also know when to leave you alone and just enjoy their impeccable period home. Told them we were taking the SS Badger ferry early the next morning and they had coffee ready by 6 and an early full breakfast by 7,... More

My wife and I had an excellent all-around experience at this bed & breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights. Bill and Jane are great hosts. They both took the time to converse with us on many subjects over breakfast. All 3 breakfasts were different and they were all very, very good. Jane let us store our bicycles in their garage...

My 2-night, May, 2016, stay at The Lamplighter Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. I've stayed in many B&B's across the country, and The Lamplighter ranks as one of the best. I chose the Cassatt Room which was perfect for me. This immaculate room has a spacious bathroom, ample lamps for reading in bed, and personal AC/heat control (which was great... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Lamplighter B & B May 3-5, 2016 with a group of friends. It is a beautifully restored historic home, filled with lovely antique furniture. The wood craftsmanship throughout is to be greatly admired. I stayed in the Crosby corner room, which was very large with bright corner windows, a fireplace and an updated... More

My friends and I stayed at the Lamplighter Inn for 2 nights. Jane and Bill are wonderful, friendly hosts and serve an elegant, delicious breakfast. Hot water for coffee and tea is always available and fresh brewed coffee was out well before breakfast for early risers. Our rooms were each unique - all lovely, clean and comfortable. There is plenty... More

During much of 2015 we traveled here about every three months. We love the food, the atmosphere and Jane and staff does a wonderful job of maintaining the b & b. They really pour their heart and soul into this place. Once you travel to this b & b no other one will be the same.
