I stayed here a few years ago for 3 nights. I still find myself longing for that comfy bed, awesome shower, good book and porch swing. Property has so much character and the owners were very accommodating.

We drove all day and arrived past 6 p.m., but had no problems checking in that late. Mike & Karen were very helpful, recommending places to visit in town. We parked our car and walked to most of our destinations while visiting. Loved eating breakfast out on the front porch. Breakfast was very delicious and varied. I would stay here... More
