We traveled from eastern PA for a weekend getaway, with specific plans to see Falling Water and Kentuck Knob, arriving on Fri. evening.
A delicious breakfast with plenty of different types food to choose from - I am dietary-restricted and had no trouble with what was offered on both mornings of our stay (which can be an issue at some B&Bs).
On Sat. morning, right after breakfast, we set off for Falling Water (which we had 10:00 AM tickets for), only to have the car break down about 5 miles from the inn. While we were waiting for AAA to come, I phoned Janet and explained our situation. She dropped everything, arranged for a rental car, came and picked me up where the car was stranded, recommended a repair shop to have the car towed to, and took me to town to pick up the rental, all of this taking up about an hour of her time. What wonderful hospitality! This kind of treatment is what separates the men from the boys, so to speak.
Our room was large, with a roomy sitting area and private bath. The inn exudes its history with random plank floors, hand made quilts, etc. It is not hard to imagine the old days with horses and carriages passing by on the road out front. I must confess, I pinched a dead flower from a stalk in Janet's garden to plant at home in my own garden!
I highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for a bit of a slower pace, and a warm and sincere welcome.
