The Alpine Homestead is a lovely departure from standard B&B life - it is a rambling home, beautifully restored, but cozy and welcoming without being overbearing. It's a very difficult thing to balance, and Barry and Peg pull it off beautifully. The breakfast was great (baked oatmeal), the rooms well appointed and clean, and the bathrooms have great linens (the...

This B & B is so lovely, comfortable, warm, welcoming and more. The breakfasts were a slice of heaven. The porch (and hummingbirds) were so enticing, fun and relaxing. But the best part of our 3 nights there was the hosts, Peggy and Barry. They made us feel like family, yet used all their best china and bedding on us:-)....strangers...

In a word - wow! I've stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this one is really special. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, with a wonderful sense of history (being from 1850), and overall so lovely. Even so, it is the owners that really add that special touch - they feel like family from the moment you walk...

My husband and I stayed in this B & B while passing through this small town. The owners of this B &B were just lovely, as was the decor of the house. The beds were very comfy, as were the pillows and a special kudos for the absolutely scrumptious bathrobes! There was an inviting wrap around porch which overlooked an...

We stayed for two nights and the visit was even better than we hoped for. It was like a home away from home, very comfortable, clean and relaxing. Barry and Peg were so warm and inviting.

Stayed here recently while my friend was visiting her daughter at a nearby summer camp. As it turned out, all of the other guests were there for the same reasons, so immediately there was some level of automatic camaraderie. As for myself, I was there for company and so I had the house relatively to myself for most of the...

Needed a budget friendly place to spend the night so I chose the "economy room" at this B&B based on other reviews. So glad I did! Cozy, quiet, clean and inviting! Delicious 4 course breakfast included! Barry and Peg are delightful hosts, my daughter and I felt welcomed and pampered from the first to the last minutes of our stay!
