Great stay overnight. Owner knows a great deal of history about the house and the area. He helped us with places to go and eat. Would return in a heartbeat. The bathrooms are shared, but if no one is next-door… You will have a great time here. You all specially enjoy breakfast.

An assortment of handmade items, beautifully done, knits, woven items, lovely jewelry, beautiful wooden chairs, lovely dishes and pottery. Food was available and variety of salty and sweet treats.

Thank you for your kind remarks and observations. The Garden House is one of a kind, representing a great part of our history past, a 1895 Queen Anne Victorian.
