We didn't know how to choose a bed and breakfast based on internet reviews, but we're glad we went with our gut instinct because Pam and Mark were delightful hosts. Even before we arrived, while emailing, we had a good sense about their hospitality. From the moment we walked in, they were so warm and accommodating. They really went out of their way to take care of us as guests. Their house is equipped with plenty of entertainment (Wii, Cable, board games, Sirius XM, etc.) if you just want to hang out. They also have the fire going during all hours which makes for a cozy environment. The bedrooms are huge relative to the price, with TV, private bathroom, and plenty of natural light. Even if you don't plan to spend much time inside, their house is conveniently located at the intersection of Routes 100 and 112, near to plenty of outdoor activities. The breakfast was delicious and varied, with plenty of vegetarian options! Of note, we are a lesbian couple and felt very comfortable in their presence. Pam and Mark are completely committed to being great bed and breakfast hosts. They make a great home away from home; it's a shame our peaceful weekend had to come to an end.
