“Wonderful Honeymoon”
Reviewed July 25, 2007

The Rufus House was the second half of our Honeymoon and what an improvement over the BnB that made up our first half. From the moment my new bride and I stepped inside, we were greeted with such warmth and welcoming. The inn keeper, Donna, was such a gracious host words can not describe. It did not take long for us to have the feeling of “home.” This is a home (a BnB) that we will enjoy coming back to again and again. Perhaps a 2nd honeymoon.

And if the warmth of the fireplace and the general overall atmosphere of The Rufus House was not enough to bring one back… the breakfast are!

Oh my! Donna is fantastic cook! With what seemed to be complete effortlessness on her part, day after day, she presented the most scrumptious meals one could imagine. Each day was completely different from the day before and equally as good.

Pam and I can not write enough to do justice. Our suggestion is simple - book your reservations now and then create your own review and fill in our blanks!

The Rufus Tanner House exceeded all of our expectations. The Empire Room where we stayed was peaceful and warm with a gas fire place and 4 very large windows which filled the room with a gorgeous glow. The super-comfortable bed and fireplace provides for a delicious winter afternoon nap and a great night's sleep.

The hosts, Donna and Rick are some of the nicest people you will meet and they made sure all our needs were taken care of. We stayed two nights and both mornings received creative and DELICIOUS breakfasts!

The common areas of the house are also beautifully furnished and offered much in the way of games and reading material as well as a friendly cat and dog who are more than happy to cuddle by the fire.

All in all, one of our most relaxing experiences.

Beautiful B&B. The sleigh room was wonderful including the relaxing jacuzzi tub. The hosts were very nice and breakfast was delightful. Highly Recommended!!!
