I feel compelled to point you to pfbird's review below titled "We're Not Worthy", because he expresses much of how my husband and I also felt staying at Laurel Lodge. Chris and Ed are two of the kindest, top-notch B&B hosts we've ever met. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. Their B&B has so many special touches, such as their self-authored house-tour you can take at your leisure, a large assortment of brochures about the nearby tourist sites, a list of nearby restaurants and menus, a coffee and tea station, a huge wrap-around porch where one can sit anytime and enjoy the gorgeous views, and perfectly decorated, yet comfortable rooms. One of the most amazing things for my husband and me was how graciously Chris and Ed accommodated us regarding our food allergies. I let Chris know of our allergies right away when I booked the room and that we'd be glad with a few simple breakfast items. Chris very kindly followed up and consulted with us about specifics we could and couldn't eat. Each morning we were served a delicious multi-course breakfast custom-made to suit our dietary restrictions. This was more than we ever dreamed of, since we've stayed at many B&B's where they don't have the expertise or ingredients to safely accommodate gluten-free or lactose-free (plus vegetarian!). Chris and Ed are pros. We wholeheartedly add our 5-star rating to the others here.
