This was a trip with my son and grandson to find where our Swedish ancestors came to New Sweden, near Caribou, arriving from Jemptland, Sweden in 1871.
It was our first experience with a B& B and we were more than pleased with the home and the hospitality. Great breakfasts and visits with hosts and other guests. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and the unique collections of antiques and books. Kevin greeted us as we pulled into the drive, immediately making us welcome. Kate was helpful with directing us to local activities and restaurants.
I bought the little book about antique irons and a little replica brass slug iron. Who could ask for more?
I would be afraid to try at another B&B, thinking nothing else will meet the high standards at The Old Iron Inn!
I am in hopes of visiting the area again and will work it around the availability of a room at The Old Iron Inn.
