We had only stayed at one other B&B before so we weren't sure what to expect. Our stay with Glen and Char could not have been more relaxing and enjoyable. The Steamboat House has been beautifully restored and decorated with historical memorabilia and antiques. The front of the house has a large porch, gazebo and gardens; a great place relax sitting in a rocker and enjoy a coffee or wine. The wine and cheese "hour" each night was great to get to know the other guests and hear the stories Glen and Char shared not to mention the great wines and unique cheeses. The multi-course breakfasts were creative and outstanding. We had such a great time we will definitely be back. Thanks to Glen and Char for your gracious hospitality!
