My g/f and I stayed with Laurn and Leigh for two nights this past wekend. We loved the Inn! The rooms are immaculate and kept up very well, the house itself is wonderful, and was redone with great attention to detail and a cozy yet updated style, the breakfasts were excellent, and Lauren & Leigh are warm, friendly, and very accommodating (offering to make golf reservations, for example). We will definitely be back to this lovely B&B.
The ladies were very responsive to my email inquiries and booking was very easy. The inn is easy to find and is very accessible. There is a slight (very slight) drawback with the location, as it is right on a main road, but this absolutely did not detract from our enjoyment or ability to sleep.
The grounds are lovely and immaculate. The Candy Apple Shoppe is incredibly well stocked with goodies, and everything we tasted was very good. There is a stocked fridge (beverages) for guests, which we found hit the spot perfectly. Their Shitzu pups were friendly yet unobtrusive. The best part for us was the incredibly friendly, warm, inviting atmosphere and energy created by Lauren and Leigh. If you're traveling to Vernon Valley/Great Gorge, do yourself a favor and stay with them.
