We found this place by chance while walking across America, on the Great American Walkabout! It was fantastic! It was an old Governor's Mansion that has been renovated and improved over the years, and now is a bed and breakfast. It has wonderful Victorian Charm, and the owner Beverly really makes you feel welcome and at home. She even took us out to dinner down the street!
Breakfast the next morning was amazing, and when we mentioned we were magicians, she called a friend and invited him over, world famous Magician Bill Wisch! He was one of our hero's in magic, and it was an incredible surprise to get to meet him!
The house itself if lovely, spacious, absolutely charming, and really fits your idea of the best experience you can have in a bed and breakfast. For anyone looking to get out of the city for a night or weekend, or just to have a relaxing night, this really is the place to go. It is only a short drive from New York City, so would be perfect for a New Yorker trying to get away. I even mention the place in my book, The Great American Walkabout. HIghly Recommend!
