My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and this was our first time staying at a B&B. From the very moment we arrived, we were treated like family by John and Ricardo. John immediately showed us around the beautiful house and gave us excellent tips on what to do and where to go. Their recommendations couldn't have been more spot-on. We stayed in the Sulliger Annniversary Suite and it was equipped with everything you could ask for, including a two-person whirlpool. I was going to stay at another chain hotel but based on pictures and reviews of this B&B, I decided to give it a shot. My wife and I couldn't have been happier with our stay and urge everyone to let John and Ricardo show you the true meaning of hospitality and comfort.
