We went to the Applewood Inn Bed and Breakfast and had a wonderful time. The owners are very nice and the place is very peaceful. Although we did not specify ahead of time, it was LGBT friendly. The owners, Chris and Linda greeted us when we arrived and were very friendly. The grounds are hilly and you can go into the llama pen if you choose to do so. They also allow you to walk the llamas for a very reasonable fee. There were two other couples there (both on their 2nd visit) and we had a delightful conversation over a delicious breakfast. I would definitely recommend it. My only complaint was that our room, the Quilt room, was close to the front door and a bit on the noisy side when people came inside.
