“Overnight retreat”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We frequently pass the Alpine on day trips up north and were very curious, well, no longer! It is a gorgeous home, warm and cozy, a very enjoyable overnight. The breakfast was excellent and relaxing, we very much enjoyed the history/ pictures of the property. We are looking forward to a summer evening on the front porch with a bottle of wine and the tranquility. PS Jamison and Bailey were comforting, putting the finishing touches on the old homestead.

Peggy and Barry took wonderful care of us for an extended ski weekend in March of 2013. This was our 2nd time staying with them. We had such a good time in the winter of 2011, we had to return! We were welcomed with fresh baked cookies and hot tea. Breakfasts were 3-courses affairs with a different selection each day. The house is absolutely charming and we relished relaxing on the couch by the fire. The icing on the cake was that when we returned home and opened a bag of food we had stored in her freezer, Peggy had added a package of her baked oatmeal. We had commented how good it was at breakfast and she snuck it into our bag as a surprise!

I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

A wonderful stay with Innkeepers who truly set themselves apart from the rest. We stayed here for three nights while attending a ski race at Gore Mountain. Peggy and Barry made our stay exceptional with breakfasts early before each day of racing and Hot Chocolate and warm brownies upon our return from the mountain. A great place to stay with exceptional Innkeepers, we have stayed in many places and this B&B is the BEST!!

We had a lovely stay at this cozy B&B, with warm, generous hosts and delicious (and thoughtfully prepared) food. Rooms are carefully decorated and comfortable, and the downstairs common areas are wonderful to sit in and read. The B&B is near Gore, and good dinners are available in North Creek. We loved our (too short) stay, and plan to be back in summertime.

We like to ski at Gore Mountain and found the perfect accommodations nearby at this B & B. Friendly, caring hosts, charming home and clean, comfortable rooms, with a healthy and delicious breakfast. Fabulous baked goods and a warm wood stove to relax by in the evening...WiFi and TV ( in the common area) if and when needed.

We had two rooms at this wonderful inn. We can't say enough positive things about the hospitality, warmth and feeling of this inn. The hosts, the food the accomodations all exceeded our expectations. You will be so pleased with this wonderful welcoming environment....so much to do in the area and to have such a nice place to return to, it was very nice. Thank you.

We stayed here last August, and came back in January for a weekend ski trip to nearby Gore Mountain. Nothing has changed. The hosts are still gracious, the house is still warm and comfortable, the breakfast is still amazing. The B&B was full one night during our stay, but it did not feel crowded.
