what a wonderful find!!! I will be going back. The owners were very friendly and helpful finding a place to eat dinner. Breakfast was awesome!!! Watched the birds outside the window while eating breakfast. We needed a quiet weekend...and we got so much more...besides the quiet...the bed and breakfast was beautiful,very clean...deer running through the grass...built in pool...a real hidden gem

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, cozy and romantic place to celebrate our anniversary. The Wooden Duck B&B exceeded our expectations. Owner Karl Krummel immediately made us feel welcome, and along with his wife Beth served up a delicious, filling breakfast in the morning. The lovely, well-maintained property is in a quiet country location...we even saw a doe walk past our window. The room itself was immaculate and had every amenity we expected -- and some we didn't, from the luxurious robes hanging in the closet to the fragrant bath salts at the edge of the huge, 2-person tub to the thick, fluffy towels. Although we have no control over the other guests, we were pleased that they were quiet and courteous. We've had far too many otherwise pleasant hotel stays elsewhere ruined by loud, obnoxious guests.

The room turned out to be much smaller than it appears in the website photo, which made the $259 (plus tax) fee a tad too pricey. However, the location, amenities, food and outstanding service make the cost well worth the stay. We'll definitely be back and highly recommend The Wooden Duck with no hesitation.

We booked the inn through the internet for October 2nd, one night. The transaction went through. We then received a call from the innkeeper saying that he was "working on the site' (then take it down) and tried to get us to pay $100 more for the room!!! We were very disappointed, as the reviews were positive, but that is just bad business. You don't advertise at one price, then call and raise it $100.

My wife and I are retired and run this small business to make ends meet. We are apparently providing a good servise, at least based on the vast majority of reviews. We are not computer scientists and some of the reservation management programs are very complex. We ask, judge us on the quality of a stay at the Wooden Duck, not on the basis of someone trying to take advantage of a computer error.

Absolutely gorgeous. Perfect spot to get away from the busy city and noise. Pitch black at night; makes for a cozy night in. Wonderful fresh air. Short drive away from the convenient down town area

The Wooden Duck has always been an incomparably comfortable place to stay; but since Beth & Karl Krummel took over the proprietorship about five years ago, it is even more inviting. The rooms and suites are cozy and well-appointed but without the ambient frou-frou so characteristic of many B & Bs. Beth and Karl are the perfect hosts, always willing to engage in spirited conversation or to recommend restaurants or sight-seeing possibilities in the area. And Beth's incredibly delicious and generous country breakfasts are always a highlight of our stay.

Our room was spacious & comfortable. The entire house was beautifully decorated and nothing was 'off limits" to the guests. The wooded location was pastoral. We enjoyed the frequent visits from the deer. After a long day of bike riding the beautiful pool was a wonderful bonus. Our hosts were so accomodating that we felt bad when it came time to leave. The breakfasts were of "5-star" quality and I am disappointed that we failed to take advantage of the "botomless cookie jar" during our stay.
Bike trails that were the purpose of our vacation were VERY close to the Wooden Duck.
Our hosts also did a wonderful job of recommending places for a good meal at local eateries.
