Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our family stayed at Wits End Farm B&B for a weekend in early June for our son's graduation from a local boarding school. We can't say enough about our time there. Our host, Joan, was friendly and gracious. The house is beautiful, and the rooms - we had three - were lovely, immaculately clean and comfortable. The surrounding yard and gardens were well kept and featured a very relaxing hammock (which we took advantage of). We had two delicious breakfast that Joan prepared for our group of six, satisfying everyone from the youngest child (finicky girl, age 13) to the oldest (wonderful grandmother, age 80). Joan went above and beyond for our stay -- even preparing a light lunch (a delicious grilled cheese sandwich) for our son, who had gone straight to sleep after arriving at the B&B at 6am on a redeye flight from LA. We hope we can find another chance to return for a visit in the near future.
