My wife and I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay. Penny could not have been nicer and more accommodating. She made us a great breakfast every morning. They are also located a short walk from all the Restaraunts and tasting rooms downtown. Home is located in a very picturesque neighborhood. Cannot say enough nice things about our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and comfortably appointed. The garden seating area was most pleasant. Breakfast was great. The French toast with berries and cream cheese was delicious. Location is convenient to downtown. Thanks, Penny.

We stayed here over fall release weekend. Penny is a wonderful host, and her breakfasts are awesome. It's really close to the downtown area and in driving distance to many wineries. The rooms are charming, thoughtfully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed our short stay here.

The Maxwell House is ideally situated. One can walk to many tasting rooms and to the best restaurants in town. Our room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Penny is an excellent cook. The breakfasts were delicious. We lingered long there over coffee.

My husband and I stayed at the Maxwell House after a busy week visiting family in Seattle. This was the perfect oasis for a few days of relaxing! The house is gorgeous-Victorian style with the most beautiful details. The town is laid back and charming, but with a great night life if you are looking to go out and eat... More

The Maxwell House - "good to the last drop". Penny's quaint Bed & Breakfast delights in and out. From the inviting front porch and backyard sitting areas to the cozy immaculate decor once u step inside with afternoon cookies, lovely toiletries and the delicious freshly prepared breakfasts, the accommodations could not have been more pleasant. Penny, the Innkeeper, was delightful... More

This B&B is a gem! Penny is a delightful and gracious innkeeper who keeps a beautiful home and knows her community well. The beautiful house has been restored and updated to be both lovely and comfortable, and the food was delicious and elegantly served. Staying at the Maxwell House was a wonderful experience for our group. Don't skip this opportunity!

Wonderful hostess, beautiful accommodations and within walking distance of great restaurants and quaint downtown area. Also within easy driving to many local wineries. The weather is amazing at this time of year and since we are from the Atlanta area it was a pure pleasure. Our hostess , Penny was fantastic.

Nice big house built in 1904. It has about 4 suites. Penny who owns and runs it is very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and which wineries to visit. The breakfasts she serves are outstanding. As for the location it is a short scenic walk to Main St. Where everything is located

First I want to say that the hostess was very nice. The proprietor was on vacation but this lady did a nice job of making us feel welcome. The room we had was spacious, nicely furnished, and clean. The food was a disappointment. The cookies set out were stale and dry. The breakfast was unremarkable; a cup of plain blueberries... More

I take full responsibility for the unfortunate experience this guest had at The Maxwell House. I did not train my inn-sitter sufficiently and I thank him for the heads up. I am grateful he gave his name as I intend to be in touch with him and offer him a free stay so I can prove his experience was not... More
