This is a beautiful time capsule of a bed and breakfast. Steve and Karen are extremely sweet and hospitable! We stayed in the Carleton Room. It was absolutely stunning. Big beautiful room and private balcony! The huge two person jetted tub was perfection. They think of everything from the luxurious sheets to the soaps in the bathroom! Karen is a... More

I then turned into the parking lot and she said, "You're kidding me!" She told me I scored huge points by selecting the... More

We just returned from a two night stay at The Carleton House for our 34th anniversary. As much as we find Victorian homes fascinating and as much as we enjoyed our stay in the home, we both agree that Karen and Steve, the amazing hosts, are what puts them way over the top as Inn-keepers. They do special things for... More

Where to start?! The house is beautiful! The food is amazing. The massage was great. The bathtub in the Carleton suite is incredible. Private balcony was nice to spend some time together alone. The Inn keepers make sure you have everything your heart desires. Upon leaving they even sent us home with cookies and part of a plant off there... More

We recently stayed at the Carleton house for one week. I can't say enough about how much we appreciated the whole experience. You could spend days looking at the historical features, furnishings and personal items from the original owners of the home or watching the birds in the beautiful gardens as the roses bloom. The soft music that's often playing... More

We reserved the Carleton Suite which is the entire third floor of the main house. The suite has its own sitting room, private balcony, bedroom with a king size bed and private bathroom with a jacuzzi tub for two. Karen made... More
