Guest Reviews

This was my second stay at Pillow and Paddock; I returned with my husband this time and the both of us had a wonderful experience! From the beautifully decorated and comfortable suite to Shannon's hospitality and delicious breakfasts, our stay here surpassed our expectations! We will definitely return!

There is so much to do at Pillow and Paddock that my wife and I were both commenting on how we were a little...See More

Each morning we were...See More

So many thoughtful extras by the hosts from a movie theatre, guest pantry & speakeasy to the rocking chairs on the porch. Delicious breakfast and super friendly hosts. If you are are passing through or just want...See More
