The house interior and furnishings are beautiful and impressive and clearly a very expensive restoration has been made. On arrival Kimberley greeted us and asked us to remove our shoes and then asked for our credit card. She then asked us to go into the library and wait for Ken, her husband. Ken came and greeted us and showed us... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in the Bell Cotton Suite. It was a beautiful room and the queen size bed was comfortable. The hot tub was great and very relaxing. The bathroom is well appointed and the shower is the best we've experienced in a B&B. The room was spotless, even under the bed. The owners were... More

We felt a little out of our element when we pulled our pick-up truck under the classical portico to unload our gear, but Kimberley and Ken made us feel so at home. We were shown into the awe-inspiring front hall with its grand stair leading up to a domed ceiling. Wide doorways opened onto Joseph Cotton's huge library, the gracious... More

Spent a 4 day weekend here on a get away with my wife. What a wonderful place. The building is spectacular, the breakfasts were to die for, and the service was second to none.

My significant other and I stayed here over Valentines Day weekend this year, and it was nothing but amazing. When we arrived, we had a nice little tour of this amazing mansion, it was like nothing I've ever seen before, like taking a step back in time. We were brought to our room, the Lillian James, and it was much... More
